Hi all. I had a blast drawing inspiration from Doris' gallery. Seriously, I could spend the rest of my scraplifting "career" just getting ideas from her gallery - wow, what talent! In the end, I chose Absolutely Zero Desire for my scraplift. I loved the list idea with the small photo and word art, but took a different direction and used Katie's wonderful new word art (on special this past Thursday). My layout is all about the deep and wonderful connection I have with my family and our summer hiking trips. Apologies to anyone who's read my other hiking pages (if I sound like a broken record), but I just can't say enough about how thankful I am for those in my family who share my love of travel and the outdoors. I am truly blessed. And to my DD family - thanks for putting up with all my "I love nature and hiking" pages. : )
Photo is from our recent trip to Yosemite this September - on the Cathedral Lake hike. We set up the camera on a rock and hit delay - it worked like a charm!

Text reads:
Funny: Laughing so hard we cried playing spit in Rainier and reading the park ranger book together in Yosemite.
Foolish: Missing the junction on the Sequoia hike and doing an extra mile downhill. Oh well!
Fantastic: Hiking across Athabasca Glacier and running into a moose on the Glacier trail - it just doesn’t get more amazing than that.
Faithful: Singing songs together coming down the Long’s Peak trail in Rocky Mountain. . . in the dark. And Aunt Dorothy coming uphill to guide us with her flashlight.
Friendly: Saying “hello” and smiling at everyone we meet along the way.
Family: Being thankful for each other and the opportunity to spend time together.
