Photohunt: Anniversary


Anniversary at Burroughs
Anniversary Hike at Burroughs Mountain

This week's Photohunt theme is Anniversary. This was very easy for me for two reasons. First, September 12th is my blog's Anniversary. I started blogging on September 12, 2003! I haven't posted consistently but Photohunting has helped. I've done just over 700 posts in seven years. Here's when I celebrated my 5th Blogiversary in 2008.

The second reason is our wedding Anniversary is in September. We have been married 35 years. Wow! It feels just like yesterday. We usually go on a hike on our Anniversary to Mt. Rainier. We haven't made it up there yet because the weather has been cold and rainy. There is a possibility that we may not make it to Sunrise or Burroughs Mt this year. The road to Sunrise will be closing in the evenings in a week and for the season early in October. If not, we will still go up to either Naches or Paradise.

We started the tradition of hiking to celebrate our Anniversary in 2003. We haven't made it every year. We hiked to Burroughs in 2008 and around Naches Peak in 2009. But I thought for Photohunt that I would post pictures from the first year that we did the celebratory anniversary hike - 2003.

We like to start our hike late in the afternoon. We take along our dinner to eat while the sun is setting and hike back in the dark. But the best time is watching the sun go down.

Have a great weekend.

You've been married 35 years??? You don't look much older than 35 years!!! :O

Getting outside to a special spot that recharges your soul is a wonderful way to celebrate your anniversary! Clearly this must be the secret to a long and happy marriage! *smile*
