When I called to tell my mom about my new buddy Stoke she had a flight to Tahoe booked within the week. She swears it was because she missed me but I know she just wanted to meet her grandpup. But hey, who can blame her?
Grandma and grandpup
One of the most awesome things about my mom is she is always up for trying new things. She was dying to get back up on the rock after a fear of heights stopped her on last summers trip. She joined a rock gym back East and her hard work payed off. Here are a couple of shots from Berkeley Camp
For our “rest day” we enjoyed a 5 mile walk around Carson Pass. No such thing as a day off in the Hutchinson family!

We were hoping to see more wildflowers but the Mule’s Ears were the only ones in bloom. Still a pretty sight though

Next up was Mt Tallac, a 10ish mile round trip hike with a 3300′ elevation gain and stunning views the entire time.
Then mom had to go home and it was back to working on the van in preparation for our road trip to Glacier National Park at the end of the month! Last up, electricity… wish me luck!
