‘Flashback Friday’ Hiking in the Rockies

I got my hair cut yesterday. The lady that always cuts my hair is Pam and she is a true sweetie…closer to the age of my own kids. We were talking about old photos and she said that she looks older in some of hers from 20 years ago than she does now.

I definitely think that is true of mine. This was taken in the ‘80s !

When my sons were growing up we lived in Northern New Mexico for a few years and spent a lot of time hiking. This was taken somewhere in the Colorado Rockies. I can tell it was the year one of my sons took his mountain bike.

He ended up having to carry it for most of the hike. And I have his insulate pad as well as my own on my pack. He was an older teen but carrying a bike was still a challenge. We weighed our packs back then and mine was around 35 pounds…that’s back when I weighed about 100 pounds! lol

And what’s in the pink bag hanging off my belt in front? Pistachios. A girl has to eat! lol

~Memories~

I sure loved hiking with my boys!

Great memories. Before lupus invaded my body, I use to hike and it was nothing to carry a 50/60 pound pack. Miss those days. You look great then and now.

You don't look old there, but I don't know what you look like now to compare it to. You look very pretty there. That's funny that your son had to carry his bike most of the way. You should go hiking again with you sons now. :)

What a fun flashback-well, except for packing all the extras for your son. I see you had your pistachios close at hand so no one could steal them- xo Diana
