    Default A Weekend Among the Clouds - 6/17 to 6/19/11

    We were lucky enough to get to spend three days at Lakes of the Clouds hut last weekend. The freeze a couple of weeks ago may have toned down the alpine flower display somewhat but they are still just spectacular. We were blessed with great weather, beautiful views, awesome hiking and best of all I got to spend Father's Day (and the rest of the weekend) in the mountains with my wonderful wife and daughter. It just doesn't get any better than that. Here's my probably-way-too-long blog post which contains likely-way-too-many pictures. For the real gluttons for mountain photography punishment there's a link to the whole 250+ picture album (whittled down from the 700+ that Jamie and I managed to take between us). Hope you enjoy it.

    The blog post is here: http://theramblingsblog.blogspot.com...ng-clouds.html

    And a little sample...

    Fantastic trail report Mark! You can never have too many photos of The Whites in my opinion. It certainly looks like you had a Father's Day to remember for many, many years to come. Thanks for bringing us along.

    I never want to see a day
    That's over forty degrees
    I'd rather have it thirty,
    Twenty, ten, five and let it freeeeEEEEEEeeze!

    BEAUTIFUL pics, Mark -- thanks for sharing! You're pics are getting me more excited for our trip! I'm a flower and bird lover also so I loved the photos! I'll keep a lookout for those Jay's on the way down. Was truly a Father's day to remember for you - Awesome! Deb

    Oh my! What a trip, Mark! Beautiful scenery, and all captured brilliantly with your fantastic photos! And, it's terrific that you were able to come across such a wide variety of wildflowers.
