Girls Get Away at Mink Mountain

Every year my friend Debbie and I go to Mink Mountain for a bit of a crafty getaway.
This year we timed it perfectly…..3 days after Ashley's wedding.
I needed some down time :)

We spend most of our time creating.
This year we did lots of scrapbooking!!!!
We also did our hikes…I love these hikes :)

I brought my "big boy" camera.
Looks like I know what I'm doing with it…I don't, lol.
I love this photo Debbie took of me, I actually look tall, lol.

A deer came and visited us one morning :)

One of the neighbours out there has a garden and sets out veggies for anyone who would like them.

This year the cooler was empty :(
But I love the generosity of this neighbour…I even made her/him a thank you card one year.
I just left it by the cooler.

An Inukshuk a different neighbour made for the entrance to their camp/home.

Here is part of one of the trails that we walked along.
This trail was the Lake view trail.
So many roots and many of them were all that was holding the soil together.
The lake below eroded the earth underneath it…so cool to walk on…unless of course it ever gave away, teehee.

To continue on our walk, we needed to use the rope to climb up the mountain.
It is so steep..and again, so cool.

This root looks like a hand trying to grab on for dear life.

We saw a duck and a crane on our walk.
I only had my portrait lens on, so couldn't get a very close photo of this guy.

 Me enjoying our walk :) 

And look who cooked all of our dinners….thank you Debbie.
Everything was delicious :)

Walking, creating and time spent with a good friend….what can be better than that.
Oh yes, and me not having to cook….Paradise :)

Hope you all had a wonderful and creative weekend :)
