Huron Peak I


562 // July 12, 2009 To continue on the story of our hike, we started our Friday night camping out near the trailhead of Huron Peak. Dave found a camping spot by the Banker Mine (near 10,500ft). Early that next morning, we packed up and headed up. View of Huron Peak from below the summit. […]

459 // March 09, 2009 I can’t believe how much our puppy has grown. Yes, for those that don’t already know, Cubbie (our Portuguese Water Dog) has turned one years old today. It’s funny to look back and think about all the planning we did in order to prepare for a dog. Watching him grow […]

Perhaps this whole series is my favorite on Cocktail Hour. After yesterday‘s post about film coming out so much better than anything […]

337 // October 05, 2008 Continued photographs from yesterday’s post. I’m posting four today instead of my max of three, hope you enjoy.

336 // October 04, 2008 I have the best husband in the world. Think of him as the backbone of Cocktail Hour. If he wasn’t the driver, if he didn’t ever plan any day trips, if he didn’t ever drive us a little out of the way just because he thinks that I could get […]
