This may be one of my favorite picnic spots ever. The view was spectacular from our little quilt covered rock. But there was a little sad, tainting our lunch that day.
Just a day earlier flash floods had swept away hikers in this very park. After we finished our picnic, we headed back on the park road. It sent a chill to spot a news van parked beside the road. A camera man was talking to a Search and Rescue worker. Sobering.
Mom's Picnic List
In honor of my mother on the first Mother's Day since she has passed, I dedicate a new list... Mom's Picnic List!
Mom loved picnics and she raised her kids to appreciate the simple pleasures of food, family and friends in the great out of doors.
I will spend a year reflecting on as many past picnics as I can remember. But, I'll also
appreciate the here and now by creating new picnic experiences. My goal is to share at least 60 picnic memories, since that's how many years Mom was a mom!
Let the picnics begin!
