Where Have We Been?
We went to the top of the mountains, to Silver Lake, up above the world famous ski resort Solitude, and spent the morning where it is cool and beautiful. We walked around the lake, saw a herd of ducks and dragonflies, climbed on the rocks, and chased squirrels and birds. The river water is cold and fast, fish jump in the lake leaving concentric circles on the surface, Simon climbed up the crevices in the rocks like a long-legged spider monkey, and when the ducks saw Jake, they climbed out of the water and came to greet him. He thought they were in attack mode and hid behind a tree. All in all, it was a lovely morning, and only about 15 minutes away! These pictures are the next best thing to being there!
