Hike on Eagle Creek

Yesterday we went for a hike!  We haven't done much of that in recent months.  It is hard to get away long enough for a hike because of our diabetic cat.  Yesterday the stars aligned.  Ozy's blood glucose was in a safe range, the weather was stellar, and we didn't have anything scheduled.  Off we went!

It was wonderful to be out, even for a relatively short hike.  There were many other happy people hiking this popular trail as well.  There were lots of wildflowers and those lovely little azure blue butterflies were flitting about.  I didn't take many photos but here are a few.

I love these gnarly oaks
