First day of school, a hike, and a backpacking trip with Jean

Seeing the new cat in the Lucas family

The first day of school!

Hiking in Robe Canyon - Lime Kiln Trail Some of the old artifacts that have been artfully scattered along the trail

The old lime kiln

Peter, about to sell his cub scout popcorn He's hard to resist in his uniform!

Eric took Peter and Kenny to the state fair in Puyallup Jean and I went on a hike to Lake Ingalls, north of Cle Elum. The first day was rainy, cold, and very windy. The scenery was still outstanding.

A pika in the rocks In the Alpine Lakes wilderness

Lots of interesting rocks We didn't see any mountain goats, which are aparently common here, but we did see lots of tufts of their hair.

Some very unusual rock formations, it looks like a dried out old streambed The next morning dawned bright and sunny, thank goodness!

The larches were turning yellow, and apparently in about 2 weeks will be a bright orange Our tent survived the night fairly well, despite the heavy winds and rain

Lovely little streams in the meadow, with sandy bottoms - if it had been warmer, I would have jumped in!

We had to keep a close eye on the cairns, to find our way

Over the gap, our first glimpse of Lake Ingalls

An unusual seam of rock in the cliff
