Kungsleden Day 5


We awoke on day 5 to another sunny morning! It didn't last long, but it was nice while we had it. We lazed around in the morning since we had so much time and not very far to go and it was nice. Once we started walking out first break was at an emergency shelter that a group of German kids had taken over. They had a billion stoves going inside cooking breakfast for everyone. We walked on and quickly came to a trail junction where you could go up and over a pass to get to the trail that heads out, or go to the next cabin. We took the up and over, which took longer than expected. Every time we thought we were at the top we went over the ridge to find it was more up! Finally we got to the top and a nice camping spot so we stopped for lunch there with some Swedish guys. It was their first backpacking trip and they were asking us for recommendations for what to eat and such. They were really nice and it was fun talking to them. The clouds started coming in as we finished up lunch so we packed up and headed on. Rain clouds periodically on our way down the valley, but they didn't stay long. We found a nice place to camp down in the valley, though it was pretty windy. We camped behind some rocks with did help as a wind break, but it was still incredibly windy all night. The wind was blowing hard all night and it was like pushing me a little bit while I was trying to sleep (so all night it was like someone was like hey jen! Wake up! Jen! Wake up! and trying to shake me awake. It was a little annoying and needless to say I didn't sleep very much). Now onto the photos from the day of hiking:

Colmar, France Part 2 - All the museums!

So when we were wandering around Colmar and spying on all the things we saw a sign that we happened to be in Colmar on a free night at the museum! So most of the museums in town were free from 7pm-11pm/midnight (depending on the museum). So we of course had to go check them out! There were only four in town so we were able to go to all of them, though by the end we were so tired and our feet were so sore from a long day of exploring and long night of museums.  First up was the Museum Bartholdi, but I didn't take any photos in there (I wasn't sure I was allowed and it was super busy, so many people!). It was super tiny, but interesting. There were a lot of models of ideas he had for different monuments and then what he actually ended up using. The one room was just ideas and designs for the Statue of Liberty which was cool. There wasn't a lot there, but what there was I enjoyed.  Then it was over to the Natural History and Ethnology Museum Cool bugs

San Francisco Part 1

  Oh San Francisco. What a wonderful time I had there. It was absolutely beautiful the entire time. Sunny, warm, gorgeous. Plus getting to spend a few days with Jacalen and Patricia = So much fun! We definitely need to do more girls trips! This will be a mostly picture post   I arrived late afternoon and the bus dropped me off near Fishermans Wharf and I walked over to where we were staying. Oh, it was gorgeous outside, but with my bags and such I was a bit warm. Not expecting that in February! Patricia arrived a bit after I did and we had the evening to ourselves to do whatever we wanted! It was so nice out and we were staying in the Marina District so it was just a short walk down to the water. Beautiful!   After wandering along the waterfront for a bit it was time for some dinner! We happened to find the Plant Cafe and I got a plant burger with fries and a salad. Really tasty! Afterwards we went to get a drink and noticed the bar had trivia on Tue
