I can’t believe they’d drive all the way from Dallas —
for just two days of hiking.
But they do love to hike!
They wanted to see the new smokejumpers bridge in the Santa Barbara canyon.
So, of course.
We planned to leave Taos at 9:00.
But 9:45 was okay.
We planned to start hiking at 10:00.
But 11:00 was just as well.
We wanted to get back out in time for carrot cake at Sugar Nymphs.
We were over three hours late.
I mean we have a heck of a good time,
stopping and gabbing,
and gabbing and stopping.
