Secret Agent Baby and The Forbidden Waters....
















These are from today's hike up into a higher altitude mountain lake....






These last three are from at the lake yesterday.....























Secret Agent Baby snuck into the dark, foreboding room. Silently, she closed the door behind her. She wasn't taking any chances this time. This would not be the first time she'd explored the forbidden area and she didn't want her mission compromised again. Yes, she knew she wasn't supposed to do it, but her family depended on her to protect them. Could it be that danger lurked in the place beyond? She turned the corner and rounded her way into the forbidden place. The white porcelain thing awaited her. Just like before, crystal clear water was perfectly at her reach. She couldn't help but to put her hands in there. Soon she was splashing. Next she unravelled a large white item of interest and it was all over the floor. Next she found her Mama person's favorite skirt. She placed it into the strange white water holder. Then she took it out. Next it was part of a box. After some time, she tired of playing in the forbidden room and decided to make her way back into civilization. Those adults and bigger persons must be watched at all times. They were a primitive sort and demanded her protection at all times. Some times she parroted their bizarre tongue and they'd all stand around "oohing and awing". Yes, they were a simple minded folk. Lucky for them, they had her around. Soon she had made her way back to the door and began knocking loudly as she couldn't seem to reach the strange gold thing that caused it to open.......
Around that time, i heard knocking on the door and a sinking feeling took hold of me. Immediately I knew that while I was scurrying around the house getting ready for the family outing, Moonbeam had fully seized her opportunity! Out she came wet from head to toe. Moaning, I pulled off her sleeper releasing with it small marble shaped brown objects rolling down the hall floor. That was about the time everybody was about to embark on our journey up to Bragging Badger Basin.
Other than that, it was a fun and uneventful hike. Except for a few items of interest..... After a strenuous hike in the high altitude, I dove into the crystal clear lake. Archer warned me not to try standing on the other side as he'd sunken in mud thigh deep. He said he had to dive in to avoid getting stuck up to his waist. With that in mind, I proceeded across cautiously. As I neared the other side, movement caught my eye beneath me!! Long dark snake like projections slithered beneath me!! I froze.... time stopped.... then I realized it was just the sun reflecting off my arms casting a shadow on the bottom as I swam - haha.
Sock Fashion Expert has been plagued with a terrible rash since picking huckleberries with the family the other day. Poor thing is miserable despite the anti allergy meds I've tried. The only thing that seems to help is the temporary coolness of a mountain creek. Send some healing prayers her way....
My apologies to every bodies blogs i've neglected as of late. Berries are on and its kind of consuming a lot of my time. Also my open water swim is this Saturday.... it never seems to end... Hope to catch up on reading yours soon :-)

Oh, poor Sock Fashion Expert, rashes are yucky especially when it's warm out. Looks like a nice hike, your Hubby looks tired, Moonbeam must be getting heavier!
