Cape Disappointment


The Empty Nest Hiking Club had high hopes to try out the new webs (yeah, that's hip talk for snowshoes) today, but the weather was totally uncooperative -- including high avalanche risk, sno park closures, etc. The situation could be summed up in one word: disappointment.

So we decided to embrace that word and head to the coast to hike at Cape Disappointment. It was a nice hike which included visits to two lighthouses in the area. Two minute video below if anybody is interested...

Ahh, nothing puts a smile on my face like that music set to pictures of you guys hiking, don't think I'll ever get tired of seeing the adventures of the empty nest hiking club. I especially liked the gun sign picture, haha. Looks pretty nice, I think I've heard of the place before - You're getting very art-sy at photos, mom!

it's so nice to live vicariously... at least you were out doing something! me? cleaned the toilets. folded towels. changed sheets. decided to skip dusting & put out the 'valentine' decorations instead. (i'm sure hubhc will notice...ha ha)

so happy weekend to you and i'm so glad you didn't bring your pistol hiking... you woulda been busted.
