On Wednesday Sergio and I went to the Black Cat Tavern in Sellwood to meet a few of his future classmates. They are all very nice people and though everyone comes from a different background, everyone seem to have a few things in common that brought them to this city and this school. We planned that day to go on a hike with some of them and went yesterday. We drove into Washington and hiked up Mt. Mitchell. On a clear day it has a view of St. Helens, Adams, Hood and Rainier. Yesterday was not quite that clear but it was still stunning at the top and we were very near Mt. Saint Helens. Unfortunately, we forgot our camera. We have to get better about taking that with us.
Don't worry though, Dave, a very nice future classmate, took his camera sent us a few pictures.
Mount St. Helens
Eliot and Dave's dog Cyrah went with us. Eliot appears to enjoy hiking.
The hike was 5.4 miles and it went up very quickly, which means that so far today Sergio and I haven't been able to do much more than eat breakfast and lie on the couch. Between the hike and the bouldering gym on thursday, I may never be able to walk normally again.
