A Drive Up The Hill To Lake Alpine And A Cute Visitor


It was wonderful to get out of the house today and go for a nice long drive up country. I feel like I have "cabin fever" even though I have been able to go outside at home.

And, I did get to go out for dinner on Friday Night.

But, on such a beautiful day it was great to be out on the road driving (riding) to Lake Alpine Resort which is over 7000 foot elevation for lunch on the patio. My home is at 2000 foot elevation.


We sat under these colorful umbrellas on the patio and enjoyed the lovely weather, view of the lake, lunch and some music.




A few onion rings to share before our beef sliders were served.


And, this is our cute little chipmunk visitor who enjoyed a few crumbs under the table. So cute scampering all around the outdoor decking.


This was the view of the lake from the patio where we sat under the umbrellas.


The lake was nice and blue. However, the drought conditions were very evident during the drive up with the condition of the trees. They look very dry and thirsty. And, the lush green colors of the past were absent.


The lake level seemed about the same or maybe just a little lower. It was good to see people out enjoying a little fishing.


It was a great day.

My sweet Lily dog is doing very well with her medication treatment for heart disease. I gave her a bath a few days ago and trimmed her hair and toe nails. She is a very good doggy with bath time and dances around afterwards like a princess. She has all her playful attitude and is eating and drinking water well. All systems are working! I have enjoyed her so very much especially with being so confined to the house with my leg elevated with an ice pack. Physical therapy on Tuesday!

Wishing you an enjoyable week.
