Hiking and Snacking

Saturday, October 4, 2008

What a beautiful day it is today. Kris and I got up early (well, 8:30, which is early on a Saturday) and I made some scrambled egg beaters with green, yellow and red bell peppers, tomatoes, fresh salsa, mushrooms & cheese. YUM YUM!

Around noon we drove out to 7 Mile Creek Park and went for a looooong hike. First we did a steep loop trail that KILLED my quads! Then we went back down to the car for snacks. I had a crispy Gala apple and Kris had a HUGE peach.

We started another trail as we ate them. We did a "Very Difficult" foot trail that brought us up to the "Scenic Overlook." It was so beautiful up there! When we got back down we ate the lunches that I'd packed on a picnic table. Turkey & ham sandwiches with fire roasted red peppers, artichoke hearts, laughing cow cheese spread on one side and sundried tomato pesto on the other! We had Peanut Butter Clif Kids Bars with them.

We were too tired to do anymore hiking so we drove home and now we're watching the Notre Dame vs. Stanford game. GO IRISH!
