Weekly Photo Challenge II

My One Love


A college friend told me that the guy you meet on Leap Day will be the one you marry.  He was right.  My One Love has always been my best friend.


We have been joyriding and going on adventures for the past 40 years.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Achievement

End of the Trail

Photo taken in 1989. 

We hiked the short Cape Flattery Trail (about a mile) through mud and muck, uphill and downhill, over fallen trees, and beautiful ferns and moss covered trees and rocks.  And we loved it!


Because this piece of land that we are standing on is the most northwesterly tip of the contiguous lower 48 States.  The land behind us is a small island.  Our Achievement is that we made it to the farthest west and north that can be gotten to in the US.

Yes, there is Alaska, Hawaii and Point Roberts, but you need a boat or plane to get to Hawaii and a boat plane or driving through Canada to get to Alaska and Point Roberts.
