But if you got this far chances are you're still here.
In that case...let me tell you about some fun I had a few weekends back.
The hubs and I got to spend a little time sans the kids. We dropped the kids off at the grandparents, visited for a bit, then got the hell outa dodge. As soon as we got in the car our time was ticking away. T-minus 24 hours and counting. GO!!
We had plans. LOTS of plans on how to spend the next 24 hours.
Holy crap was it a beautiful day!
|OH THE VIEWS!|
|Hiking up Donner Peak|
|Just me and the hubs|
We climbed the switchbacks at the beginning of the hike in our boots but later put on snowshoes to climb the steeper parts.
|Just a little steeper.|
We took a few pictures along the way because how can you not when your surroundings are as incredible as this?
Wait! Was that a bare ass I saw? Maybe I should take a closer look...
Yup. It blended into the surroundings so well I almost missed it!
And that finger in the shot above it just makes for the perfect composition. Damn I'm a good photographer.
Then we came upon the trail marker that marks the part of the Emigrant Trail the Donner party used during their trek through the badass wintery Sierra Mountains in 1846.
|My ancestors were here.|
|There's a devil on my shoulder.|
Eventually, we had to take the snowshoes off again to do a little rock scrambling to the top. But the excitement of getting to the top got to me and I couldn't control the urge to take more than just my snowshoes off.

|Oh yeah...wait for it...|
|My tiny tangy temptations|
I think its just awesome sexy how Saucy McRibs and long underwear go so well together. Don't you think?
We had some serious fun on that hike. We even raced in the snowshoes.
Then it was off to meet up with my friend Pablo (the ax murder from this post), drink a beer, have a sausage (I've never tasted pheasant before), see his new baby, go to a party...

... spend the night on the lake and wake up to this gorgeous scene...
Grab some coffee...

Whew! All done in less than 24 hours. BOOM!
