This hike is tough on old bones and bad knees. It's four miles up with an elevation gain of 3150 feet and I obviously forgot how difficult it was coming down because of the grade. It was beautiful and windy at the top. I packed my sketching stuff but to be honest with you I was so gassed I just took pictures with the phone....
Beyond family, I'd say that art, sports and the quest to cook a great meal are the big priorities in my life.
I am 56 years old, and live in the Seattle area with my wife of 29 years. I have a beautiful daughter who shines as an EMT in Pierce County and I live in the suburbs, but truth be told, would rather be a city or country boy.
I love a good game of hoops and nothing makes me happier than the opportunity to draw and paint.....Time stops.
I like my brew dark, that goes for coffee and beer.
