I woke up on Labor Day at a crowded camp site. It wasn’t as calm as we might have liked, but the Dam did provide a marvelous backdrop for one last breakfast before hitting the road.
These steps were directly behind our camp site. Making my way down proved harder than you would think after hiking 23 miles.
And because I had 2 nasty blisters on my feet from hiking in gym shoes. Note to self…check out REI for hiking boots stat!
On to a much more beautiful view…
The Tippy Dam, where we had warm morning beverages and whatever food was leftover for breakfast, with this adorable new friend.
It was the perfect way to end our 3 day trip!
I’m looking forward to our next adventure!
