The Mishawaka

 There is a really cool little restaurant/dance hall/concert venue that is almost a 100 years old... and there is a lot of hiking around it...

So what is a girl to do?

Bribe her family to take a hike, and at the end.... take them to the Mish!!!

The snow hasn't quite melted in the High Country. Some of it has, but it refroze again into ice, so we had a very interesting hike~!

We always have to have a few Black and Whites.... in B&W I thought this looked like a howling wolf have to use your imagination.... but I have a good one!!!

Contrails  ( I love catching those!)  

Just the Vastness of the mountains
I feel so lucky to be close enough to get out into them!
if you haven't figured out by now - I am a wide Open Spaces kinda girl...

You do see the man in the mountain on this one right?  I think he looked like Jabba the Hut!!

This is the mountain we were going up! it was pretty steep, but man it was gorgeous. Its when we started slipping every other step that we got concerned - going up, not so bad.... but we knew we had to come down!!

And the best part!
The Mishawaka!!

We sat out on the deck that is over the river. They individual tents that are clear, so they turn the heater on, and you can sit out there and watch the world go by.... or a deer....

Not a bad way to spend a day!!!

The sky is so beautiful and vast, thank you for the pictures! We have a city 20 minutes from us called Mishawaka. The story is that's the name of an Indian princess.

My daughter is moving to Denver this summer for her final year of residency. I’ll have to pass this place on to her. Looks like a fun place!

I'm pretty decent about going up, but it is always the coming back down that worries me. It seems like you made it safely, though!!

There is a town in Indiana named Mishawaka - we lived close by during our IN years. Cool little place - but NOT with the scenery your Mishawaka offers!

I'm always blown away by your hikes - you are so lucky not only to live near these gorgeous trails but also to have a family you can coerce to go with you!
