Backpaking to Smith Lake

Matt and I went backpacking to Smith lake this past week. We spent 3 days and 2 nights out in the desolation wilderness. We hiked out of Wright's lake and 3 miles later all up hill, we made it to Smith lake. There was still snow up there and we had that whole area to ourselves. It was awesome!
We had the best view from the top of the peak. We of course had S'mores after dinner over our little burner since we can't have fires.

We camped a little above the lake. We relaxed, read, and went boulder climbing to the top of that mountain. We also fished and had time to catch up since my work schedule is so wierd. We didn't go swimming because there was still snow around the lake. Freezing water!
We had some great views and scenery. Our legs were burning by the time we made it to our camp.

We love going on vacations together and with family! Anything adventurous and outdoors we love to do. So far we have been to Idaho/Yellowstone, So. CA, Tahoe with our families. With just Matt and I, we have been to Mendocino, CA (honeymoon), Petaluma, Ca, and Florida (Ft Lauderdale & Orlando - loved Disneyworld). We try to take small trips and go hiking and backpacking in the summer. But this is our most recent vacation to Montana in March. We had fun in the snow. We went snowshoeing, dog sledding, and snowboarding/skiing.

I am still learning how to use this, so bear with me. But so far our family consists of Matt and I; hopefully a baby in the near future. We have been married for 3 years now. Time flies! I am working full-time at Sutter Roseville as an RN in Labor and Delivery. I'm loving it, even though it has been insanely busy at work! Matt is working part time while going to school. Work has been really flexible for him so that he can concentrate on school. He starts at Sac State in the fall and hopefully will graduate in 2 yrs with his Geography major! That's the plan for now.
