One Beautiful Breakfast

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!

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!

  1. Ouch- those blisters look painful! How are they doing now?
    I bought hiking boots last year after trying to tackle some hikes with serious elevation. My advice would be to get Goretex!
    I loved all your photos…beautiful!

    • Thank you and thanks for the boot advice. I’m hoping to catch a pair on sale this fall, and to plan for many more hikes in my future! I felt great the next day. I happend to have a derm appt, and he took care of the blisters for me, so I was back in my running shoes quickly : )
