Our Backyard

We had a wonderful day today! After walking our dogs, we had a fabulous frittata with eggs from the Farmers Market. We watered the gardens-perennial and vegetable.

And then…

We took a drive up Highway 108.  There are wildflowers everywhere. We have had a warm-not HOT Summer! It is so Beautiful! Nothing is fried. The flowers, plants and trees are not in dormant save yourself mode…

Kennedy Meadows http://www.kennedymeadows.com/ was our goal, and it was so beautiful! (the cowboys didn’t hurt). We had lunch on the deck, and wandered over to the sparkling river, for a short hike. There were thistles…Did I mention the Cowboys?

Anyway… after our hike and lunch, we wandered back down the pass. We turned into the Donnell Vista overview. It had been refurbished. Redone. Done over.

The paths are now paved! The hike is easy, and oh so beautiful! Quite frankly, it was breathtaking. I don’t even know how far we were above the turquoise water of Donnell reservoir… I had to hold on to the railing with one shakey hand and my hat with the other. I can’t believe that we haven’t seen this before.

What were we thinking?You really can’t tell from this perspective, but my camera was pointed straight down. I felt like I was a mile above this turquiose and granite perfection!
