Wrightwood!

So the trip from Big Bear to Wrightwood has been a bit crazy (in a good way). We started off and it was gorgeous! Then we had 2 days of extremely hot weather (over 100 degrees) where we had to sit out from noon till 4 or 5, then the warmest night we have had so far followed by the coldest night. Then this morning we got up (last night was freezing cold!) and started walking and it started snowing....a lot. It was crazy. 2 days ago it was so hot we couldn't hike, then this morning snowing. But it was a great 6 days. It has been absoultly beautiful and the animals and flowers and clouds and everything have been awesome. We are going to stay in Wrightwood tomorrow night as well so I may try and come back and upload more photos tomorrow to my photobucket account as these computers are pretty fast. So if you click on any of the photos it will take you right to my photobucket pct page and you can check there. But for now here are a few:

Our campsite one night. It was absolutely gorgeous! But very loud as we had the water, the frogs, and the crickets and birds and evertything, but it was all easy to tune out and I slept really well there.

Snake wanted to be Raymond's friend. It was sitting on the side, then it decided to go to the other side, then towards Raymond, then to the other side, then towards Raymond again, then back the way he came....he couldn't decide where he wanted to go....

And here they put a magic spell on this spot or something so that horses cannot go through, they have to go 100 feet to the left

Stupid Libraries.

So I only have six minutes left and just wasted a few seconds letting you know, but I need some assistance in getting things off our iPod onto the net. In the last town we were in, I came so close to getting it up only to be thwarted by the only damn cd -burner in the shop being broken. This is the problem: my iPod is mac formatted - the folks at Apple thought it would be hilarious to not include some sort of compatibility between windows and mac versions of iTunes to read the voice memos you record from any computer. If your iPod formatted on a mac (I believe it's HSF +), windows iTunes will tell you to reformat the buggar . And get this, the iPod records voice memos in old school PC style wav files. What the hell. Anyway, I can't test or install things on this library computer, but if someone checking the blog who is tech savvy could find a program to retrieve data from a mac formatted iPod from a windows machine - a program that doesn't use a god damn install

The end

So it started raining on us for days and we cut out to come back to Seattle for a few days and wait for it to clear up.....and then Raymond decided he really did not want to go back out. So I at first was pretty upset cause I really wanted to get to Canada, or at least as far as we could while the weather was still nice this weekend. And I was feeling really like we were giving up for no reason. Like if one of us were injured or if I was hating it or something then I would have been better about it. But instead it was like the forecast called for gorgeous weather this weekend and we were just going to sit at home. I figured we could have at least gotten to the next stop and then only had one more chunk to do next year, but Raymond really didn't want to go back out so we decided not to. But hopefully by this time next year we will get the last 2 sections done, and maybe go back and do the section from white pass to snoqualmie as we went RIGHT by Mt Rainier and it is supposed to be g

Paris part 1

So we had a wonderful time in Paris. Though I decided I am not sure that I know how to have a relaxing do not much vacation as well...the original plan was to just wander and take lots of tea breaks and just hang out and not do too much. Well that quickly went out the window as we hobbled back to our room every night with my feet hurting so much! It was amazing though and we saw so much and did so many fun things. A few weeks before we left I was looking at free Kindle books and found 100 free things to do in Paris so I downloaded it and it actually had some good ideas. It listed a lot of museums that are interesting and free which was good as most of them I never would have even looked as they seemed like they would be expensive (big fancy ornate buildings - At the one Raymond said this doesn't look free...but it was). I'm glad I downloaded it as it gave us some good ideas, even though we did spend money on museums as well. I took a billion photos so I might just post some
