Summer Beaty: Hiking

One of my favorite things to do in the Summer is hiking. I’ve never really hiked anywhere else except in the Pacific Northwest. It never ceases to amaze me at how lovely the forest is, especially the trees!

To celebrate our birthdays, which are 360 days apart, last weekend The Man and I spent a whole day together without kids. We love our kids, but there is something special about spending time one on one, like we used to during our dating days.

We enjoyed a hike just outside Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho on Mineral Ridge Trail. Here are a few of my favorite snaps…I’m totally enamored with the patterns in the bark right now…
