Saturday we got up pretty early. We had set it up where each person or two people would be in charge of one meal or dessert. Saturday morning was Lindsey's day for breakfast. She brought a breakfast keish. It was very yummy. After breakfast we got dressed and ready to go on our hike. We could not have asked for a more beautiful day. So we loaded up the car and set out to find Three Forks Trail. A couple of the guys I work with had told me about it and said that we should definitely check it out...so we did.
It took us about 20 min or so to get to the trail from the house. We finally arrived and found several other cars parked at the entrance to the trail. I had been warned that the trail could be a little difficult in certain places but I knew that we could do it so I didn't tell the girls what I knew. But they would soon learn from a guy that had just finished as we were about to go in what it was all about...his exact words were "It is a bi*** of a hike". There was a brief freak out moment for a few of them but we set out to conquer it anyway.
We did take a camera with us to document our little hike so come along and check it out...
After the hike we were all pretty tired. But we headed to little downtown Clayton and went in a few of the local shops. Small towns always have such interesting little stores. After rambling in the stores we finally made our way back up the mountain to the house just in time to watch the sunset. It was absolutely beautiful! Wish I had a picture to share with you but we were not quick enough to snap one. That evening we enjoyed Katie & Paige's Sante Fe Soup. It was just what we needed to replenish us after our long day. The rest of the evening was spent laughing, story telling, movie watching, and in a little friendly game of Cranium...ha! Who knew us gals could get so competitive with one another!
All in all it was such a wonderful weekend and just what each of us needed. I look forward to spending many more weekends at the mountain house with friends and family.
