Ian’s Birthday Hike


These photos are glorious shots taken my my dear friend Tate at Ian’s 40th birthday hike—at the beginning of last month. I’m grateful to Tate for taking them and letting me share them here.


Acorn led us on a local hike to Lake Natomas, created by the Nimbus Dam along the American River. He haunts this area a lot and knows where to find the Indian grinding rocks and sunbathing turtles.


It was a warm October day and both the kids and Suki the dog enjoyed brief splashes in the water.



Several friends were able to join us and it was a fun way to spend the day. It felt great to get outside and picnic together.


Sun hats for everyone!


Any day the kids get to wear their camelbaks is a good one in their view.




If I forgot to say it before, many thanks to those that came to celebrate Ian’s birthday with us. We had an epic weekend of fun and friends.
