Break Time

One of the great parts of hiking in the mountains is finding a quiet area to take a little break - and just soak in the view.

Kiska approves.

    I approve as well. Gorgeous photograph. Nothing like hiking in woods and then suddenly turning a corner and finding a breath-taking view. Now, if the weather will please just return to normal!
