surprise distance, weather, meals, & bon jovi

last weekend we went backpacking in the desolation wilderness
here in california.
the plans were to go to camp at one lake...
but
we couldn't get the permit that morning,
so we had to go twice as far as we had planned!


i had planned for cold temperatures,
but had not planned for higher elevations,
which meant: SNOW


our final destination at the other lake was beautiful,
though very, very cold.


ceej and mark took the polar-bear-plunge...
we were all freezing just watching them!


while mark & robin cooked us a very gourmet meal,
i serenaded everyone to my folk renditions of
"it's my life," "livin' on a prayer," and other goodies!



here is ceej and i at the end of the trip...after we the rain and hail had soaked us through and through.


it was a difficult trip in many ways,
but oh so worth it.
