Jesus Thinks You're A Jerk*

MT: That's some hair.
ME: Yeah...and makeup.
MT: Yeah.
ME: (pause) She looks like Tammi Faye Bakker.
MT: She does! That's the meanest thing you've ever said.
ME: I know.
MT: That's okay. (laughs) Just say a little prayer later; wipe it clean.

*Connection anyone?

Lake Serene

Beautiful, yes? My only regret - that the clouds obscured our view of Mt. Index. Oh, and this:

The last mile had me saying, "Damn, that's a lot of rocks" and "Oooooh those rocks are slippery" and also, "Death by impalement sounds painful" but mostly on the way down. I've discovered that I'm much more of a wimp hiking down, than up; mostly 'cause I'm so afraid of falling. Luckily, I only fell once (yay me!) and not hard.

The fabulous views more than made up for the twenty-three switchbacks (that Cher meticulously counted) and two thousand foot elevation gain. Here we are at the lake:

On the way back we decided to take the mile long detour to Bridal Veil Falls (totally worth it). See!

I would definitely recommend this hike. A little challenging at places (um, did I mention all those rocks?), but extremely rewarding. Overall, a fantastic Saturday!
