Hometown 4th of July

by - Thursday, July 07, 2011

This 4th of July was a busy one for us. We traveled north for my 20 year high school reunion and to visit with family. It was a weekend filled with hiking...

...and climbing rocks...


...to see a waterfall (Faery Falls):


We watched the hometown parade complete with loud firetrucks...


...pretended to drive Grandpa's Jeep...


...and played croquet:


We watched Mt. Shasta grow pink with alpenglow at sunset...


...and had a driveway fireworks show:


We dressed up and reunited with old friends, some who I hadn't seen for 20+ years:


It was hustle-bustle, but it felt good to get out of town. The hike to the waterfall was a bit of a wakeup call for my inner adventurer. We had to walk on a skinny and gravely (aka slippery) trail on the edge of a drop-off to get to the falls. The walk was totally worth it- I need more of this!
