Day 58- BLISS!!! (aka hiking in a skirt)

Today goes down in the books as a perfect day.

My dad babysat, and Jason and I took a day-trip together. We hiked to the top of Mt. Baldy! It was spectacular!! From the parking area it was 4 miles up going from 6,000 to 10,000 feet in elevation. There is a nice lodge at the top where you can have lunch and just enjoy the views.

Hiking uphill for four miles in the sun without a hat meant that I had to do be creative with my sweater. Jason found this quite funny.

I absolutely loved the fresh blue sky and view of the valley below.

The sky is bluer up here.


There was even a waterfall that I had no idea was up here. I’ve lived in this area all of my life, but have never hiked here! So it was just wonderful to spend a day in my “own backyard” as they say and enjoy the natural beauty of where I live. All of this awesomeness was only a 15 minute car trip away.


Now, this seems unrelated, but is still part of my perfect day. Yesterday I bought the kids (and myself) tennis rackets because I want to start hitting the ball around with them at the park. Our park has a nice tennis court and I saw a dad hitting balls with his little 3 year old about a month ago. I had no idea you could start kids so young! Anyway, now I’ve got it in my head that I want to play tennis with my kids so here we all are posing for a picture this morning before Jason and I left for our hike:

Have a wonderful day!

    Love the hike. Read about this last year, but now I want to do it. Can you be more specific about which parking lot and which trails you left from? Also, what is the lodge name and what hours is it open? I have lived here so long and have not yet hiked Mt. Baldy! Any additional info would be helpful. Thanks.
