Hey there! It's hard to believe that summer is just about over. I have to admit though that I LOVE Autumn, so I'm getting anxious for the chilly weather; the turning of the leaves; Steeler...I mean, football season; comfort foods like soups and casseroles; and all of the festiveness of Fall!
Today I thought I'd share some photos---kind of a recap of what the Petrellas have been up to this summer. Here goes:
In May we traveled to Santa Fe, NM. During that trip we hiked Santa Fe Baldy (13 miles round trip, but worth every step).
We also camped at Great Sand Dunes National Park. This was our first time visiting the dunes, and it was AMAZING!
We trecked all over the dunes. I think the above photo puts the size of the dunes into better perspective.
In June we went to Aalborg, Denmark.
In early July we discovered that the high mountain trails were still covered in snow.
Also in July, our friends from San Diego came to visit and we went on a long weekend adventure to Steamboat Springs.
And now that the trails are pretty much clear, we've been hiking every chance we get!
North Table Mountain:
It's been a busy and fun-filled summer, and I can't wait to see what adventures our future holds!!! Before I go I have to share one final photo of Oliver James (this is his way of enjoying the great outdoors)! HA!
I know this was a long post, so thank you for sticking with me and allowing me the opportunity to share some of my other passions (traveling, hiking, spending time with my husband/friends/cat, and enjoying this GORGEOUS and AMAZING world we live in)!
Hope you are spending your weekend doing something you LOVE!
