Hot Gorgeous Hikers (SPA Trip #13)

We wandered around above treeline on a beautiful day drinking MHLs. HAUTE CINQ!
High Five

Why is Christian so small suddenly?

After taking in the incredible views of the hot gorgeous scenery, we decided to head down and paddle the river we had been admiring. So with our lunches packed up and shoes tied tight we boarded… a school bus? Now-appropriately-sized Christian enjoys the snacks his mom packed for him before he left.

….And started paddling. Christian slashes the pow (and the water onto the rear occupants of the canoe) and waves at the honeys on the shore.

We stopped briefly to take in the scenery

There was a bunch of these weird things everywhere. Typical.

After noticing some clouds rolling in we started back. A girl can get used to the views around here!

To round out the day Christian went hunting for salmon with his teeth. Greg wore his America Shorts to celebrate his freedom, and let everyone know his allegiance.

This guy knew what was in season though… and it wasn’t salmon.

Tired, hungry, and wet these hot gorgeous hikers bade farewell, and started making their way back home… but not before we could get one more big steaming pile of Timmy for lunch.

And also we stopped to check out two really cool cliffs we’d heard about. Wow that’s pretty big.

So’s that one!

And for dessert we picked up some weird flavored CanaDoritos (Copyright 2010 They were pink. To think: these were at one time (mostly) corn waving gently and beautifully on a farm field with blue skies and fresh air. How far they’ve descended. The horror.

But at least the packaging was fitting for a FamousInternetSkierSnack.

Thanks for checking out the grand finale of HIKE WEEK on FIS. See you on the trails!

    It’s gotten to the point where I can’t sit down to read FIS with having my own beer in hand. The cans of MHL I can hack. I’ll never forget a summit county colorado hut trip where three of us had one big can of Foster’s (24oz?) that we cherished for 5 days until we split it the last night, up at 11,500 feet. Party! Nice report and pics.

      a.) I assume you mean “without”.

      b.) If so, AWESOME! Success here at FIS is measured with many yardsticks (mostly really small ones), but none are more important than the “reader cannot and will not engage with site until tall boy is acquired” metric. It’s actually a stat on Google Analytics believe it or not.

      c.) If not, um… we’re so sorry for your loss although we cannot assume responsibility :(
