August, So Far

In an effort to get in shape for our upcoming backpacking trip, we managed to fit in a hike in the Gorge a few weeks ago. We did the loop up to Triple Falls (where we stopped for a picnic) then on to Ponytail Falls and back out to Horsetail Falls. Gretel is a good little backpack rider except that she repeats over and over again "I want to get out Papa"! If we walked at her speed, who knows when we'd get home!

We also had a quick visit from Grandpa Lar, who came to go fishing with Casey. Here we are enjoying a meal in our outdoor dining area.
Oh yeah, and here's our first beet harvest of the year. We pickled most of these but Casey also tried canning for the first time, which was a moderate success! We hope to get another round of beets in the ground for winter/spring harvest soon.
