Aidan & Sidney...Duncan & Dave's new friends...
that's as much of a smile as Aidan is going to give me...we had been chatting the night before and when I asked him if he liked hiking, his response was 'No'...when I asked why, he said (with as much attitude as a 9 year old can give) 'because it's basically just walking' :) So I didn't bother trying to 'fancy up' our outing by calling it a hike...we just took the dogs for a nice leisurely stroll... :)
On a clear day, you could see Denali...this was my first glimpse of it (on a separate day as the day we were out was not terribly clear)
pretty impressive seeing this massive peak when it is over 200 miles away!!
