Epic Summer Adventure

I mentioned last week I was off for an adventure and it was EPIC!

First off, going out with girlfriends is fun. 

Here we are all fresh, clean and ready to go!

7.3 miles later and this was the view from my tent at Mirror Lake, elevation 7,595'

This photo says Mirror Lake is a good name for it.

 Always enjoy sunsets.
We hiked a 5 miles alpine lake loop on Thursday. 
And took a dip to freshen up! LOL

 Our view again from my tent. I just couldn't get enough!
There were many water crossings....

And waterfalls.
The drive to the trailhead was beautiful too.

And to keep this quilt related....
 Also seen on the way to the trailhead. 

When I arrived home my winnings from Cecile's star quiltalong were here! I received  these lovely colors of Auriful thread. Thank you Cecile.

It's going to be Hot, Hot Hot this week! Hopefully I'll get a chance to Sew, Sew, Sew! 

Let's have a great week!

  18. I've seen pictures of Mirror Lake before, now I know the name! So beautiful, with the snow there, I imagine it was cooler. Why not stay longer? This week will be HOT here in central Oregon!
