Paul and I don’t always have a lot of money for weekend getaways, but thankfully we don’t always need it. My parents live just over an hour away, where we used to live. That area is a beautiful, mountainous area that we love to visit. We stay at my parents house, which is not only free, but gives us time with my parents. It’s a win win situation.
Last week we decided to get away for a 3 day weekend at my parents house. We mainly relaxed hanging out with my parents and cooking dinners together. But one of the days Paul and I went up further into the mountains to an old abandoned mine and a beautiful lake up there. It was a great time and we got some great pictures. We plan to go again in October, and visit some other beautiful mountain areas up that way.
Here are some fun photos of our hike, you can see the rest here in my Flickr album.
