One fine day

For years, I have enjoyed climbing Saddle Rock, however after my last hike I sat on the tail gate of my pickup and wondered if maybe I should look for less physical and more age appropriate challenges offered by our valley, as I am now 87.

One that presented itself is right outside our back door in East Wenatchee and is a series of lower foothills that seems to attract a lot of hikers, often with kids or dogs or both. 

The view at the top of either of the closest buttes is truly worth the hike. 

I always carry my phone and on my last climb I noticed an orchard with an unusual color pattern so I snapped this picture. 

My only regret is that I didn’t bring a little folding chair, which would have allowed more time to sit and take in the view of our valley. 

Maybe next time.
