Trip, Part 4


Well, this was my favorite day! I loved the whole park but this day tops the list. Admittedly Wilma was not as happy about the hike, but was game to try it. We've hiked many trails together over the years and she know's what it will involve. Once there, we were able to relax and enjoy life. The staff at Sperry Chalet are good at making that happen.



Time passes quickly. We could have used more time at all our lodgings, but this one seemed especially short.

What delightful memories and the drawings/photos are great! Sorry about Wilma's t-shirt and the blisters, but it sounds like it was worth the pain and anguish.

I can't believe your pages. They really document your life and vacation well. Will definitely be returning frequently to read and take it all in.

Fantastic! Are you saying a marmot ATE a T-SHIRT??

I am so enjoying this journal, travel journals are my favourite art journal I believe :)

The marmot ate holes in the shirt around the neckline where there were salt deposits. He was after minerals. We saw him later, too. The staff have names for each marmot that lives there.
