My friend J. and I finally got together again to hike in our favorite State Park. She is my hiking buddy whom I told you about here. This year we didn't get together very often, so the more we treasured yesterday's hike.
We started out in the fog, climbed up the hill in the fog. There was absolutely no view, we saw the trail for only a couple hundred yards and it seemed to us that we were almost alone up here (later on we met a few people, though). At the end of the trail there is a beautiful lake where we usually have our picnic. When we arrived there after a 90 minute climb it looked like this:
Then the fog started to lift...
... and revealed the beauty of this place.
All these photos are SOOC.
This was what we saw.
And it was beautiful.
