Ships in the Night

Some bloggers live within a few hours drive of me in another state.  I have actually driven by the hometown of one several times and never seemed to be able to detour and stop in for a visit!  I know I would find her at a scrabble table in the local hangout or dancing in the local pub.

Anyway, last summer I was hiking and photographing exactly where she and her husband had been this recent month and for some reason that struck a chord with me.  There is not a great deal of coincidence to this, but it does seem as if we are ships that pass in the night on this planet and except for blogging we would never know.

Below photos, sharing for her interest mostly, but hoping my other readers enjoy this place.  Peaks of Otter - the mountain in the distance.  As you can see, it was late summer.



This is one of the bridges leading to a walk around the lake.

Above is my grandson leading to the hike up to the PEAKS!  It was no small walk for this old lady and many moments for heart attacks with little ones.


And here is my family up above looking back at the lodge where we had eaten lunch!  Does this look familiar, Colleen?

Update!  This mountain climb was begun with a bus ride up to near the top and the last part of the climb, no small effort, was what we actually did!!

Ah, yes. It takes me back and makes me want to go back. I think I will take the bus up to the peaks and just hike that last mile or so. Maybe see some birds?

Sometime I think meeting up might be like risking a good friendship with a marriage! But I would risk it.
