While we were camping we went for a hike one day. Falls Creek Falls, in Washington.
We had done this hike a long time time, the same spot. It was 6 years ago, when Lucas was just 8 months old.
We had been Geocaching then, and this time, without a GPS, we looked and paid attention to what we remembered.
We found it! And the Geocache box had the same original notebook. The same notebook we left a note 6 years ago. Back then, it said, Lucas was 8 months old, we had our Big Dog with us (who passed away 3 years ago), and Siena was just 4 years old. A complete different hike back then than it was now.
Back then, Lucas in a backpack being carried the 2.2 miles. Now, we are all hiking. The same miles, to see the same beautiful falls. It was fun to remember that trip, 6 years ago. From something so small, as a short note in a little notebook, we had great talks walking in this time.
I love it. I wonder if we’ll go there 6 years from now, on another summer day. Siena would be 16, Lucas 12. Oh… always fun to think.
And we continued our hike to the falls.
Until we reached them.
I leave you with a bit of nature.
