Mt. Hood, Part 1

After the Thorp/Westermeyer wedding, we went backpacking with the siblings of the bride and groom (Allana, Chris, and Stephen) and the father of the bride (Dr. Westermeyer).  We had a wonderful time, and kudo's to the Westermeyer's for being willing to go tromping off to the woods with us so soon after Allie's wedding.  Here are snapshots with mostly people as the main subjects.  The scenic pictures are coming in the next post.

 Barry packed this watermelon up to our campsite.  We then cooled it in a rock "bathtub" that Allie and Allana had made in their younger days.

 We all were greatly amused by Chris's hiking outfit.

Mt Shasta and Multnomah Falls, OR

Here are some pictures from our road trip north for the Westermeyer/Thorp wedding.  We stopped to see the Guthrie's in Mt. Shasta on the way up.

Northern California Trip

This spring we went to N. Cal for a sad reason - the funeral of Barry's Grandfather - Papa Haskins.  Despite the somber occasion, we were able to see family and friends, and spend some time on Aunt Margo's walnut farm.  Here are a few pictures.
