We've actually been gone from the ranch for a little over a month. A week in Las Vegas visiting our two grandsons and family, then 20 days backpacking from the Mexican border to Interstate 15 along the PCT, then almost another week visiting our grandson and family in Fresno, CA.
It was a long time to be away from home, but we love spending time with our grand babies and we love extended backpacking trips. We decided to take a long spring hike instead of our usual long summer hike. It was fun and as always very renewing for us, but it sure is good to be home. We are also very appreciative of Eric and Jo who take good care of the ranch and all the animals.
For me, I was especially happy to see this little face.
