Historical Picnic

Wilderness is not a luxury but necessity of the human spirit. ~Edward Abbey

Over the weekend, the British Hubby and I had our first outdoor adventure on Ulysses. We only made a few wrong turns before finding our destination, the historical Coal Creek.  Here you can see the remaining foundation from the Coal Creek Hotel that was built about 100 years ago in 1918.

Here’s the view from Ulysses.

Hiking in new motorcycle gear isn’t exactly the easiest hiking equipment for contemplating nature. New leather is a bit stiff for long walks. Instead, we had a picnic and some knitting while contemplating what the area would have looked like 100 years ago when the coal mines were active.

Sock number two is coming along. This pattern, Vanilla Latte, is perfect for traveling. I don’t need to bring the pattern along. Maybe I’ll finish these before Stage 2 of TDS begins. (I know that was funny, right?) Stage 1 currently has about 175 completed pairs!

I’m not sure Gracie even noticed we were gone.
