a couple of things

remember the aliens on sesame street? The phone episode is my fav. of all time. see it here:

second, i've switched to beta blogger, a new franchise of google. And, IT SUCKS! you can't do any of the things that made old blogger easy, so don't switch. Because of that, this is short.

I'm good though.

busy bee

Too much so to get the 10 photos up that we took on the trip, and I'm running late for work.

So, soon, I'll holla back at all ya'll.

I'm good, still some blisters, but not as sore as I thought. Hardest thing is talking to people now, I just don't want to deal. Makes me think a commute to the country wouldn't be such a bad thing. It would be so nice to come home to peace and quiet.

I was in Seattle for 5 days and then the northern North Cascades for 4 days and 3 nights, where the mountain peaked at us and the rainforest rained on us. Good stuff.

Most exciting is Aubrey will be back this weekend, and another Stephen will be visiting too. So, while I generally dislike people, at least this weekend will be spent talking to those I do like.

Vay Kay!!!!

Hey hey hey

I'm outta here.

But first i wanna tell you a little secret. Last weekend we wanted to take a hike that sounded lovely, hike through a creek to get to a beautiful waterfall. Unfortunately, 350 other people also wanted to do this .3 mile hike. YUCK!

So, we decided to get away from people, and found the perfect hike to do so, The bridge of the gods trail. Part of the PCT, this trail escapes humans, and highway noise after about 1/2 hour to end at a beautiful, wispy waterfall that has a punchbowl just barely big enough to dip in. See, most folk pass the trailhead on their way to Washington, to Gifford Pinchot. No one stops. YEAY. Enjoy if you wish, I'll have photos of the trip up in a bit.

Anyway, we're off to vacation land today. Three or so nights in Seattle, no dog. Then off to backpack somewhere without people. First vacation without the dog. Hopefully that will mean I'll be back having seen the Olympics or have climbed Mt. St. Helens. Either way, this is gonna be one of the best weeks of my life.

And bonus, talked to pjr on Friday, and looks like I may be able to spend Christmas in Wisconsin.

Work is just a bad dream for now (not that it is so bad, I'm just sayin).
