We hiked Maxwell Falls on Tuesday and went to Beau Jo's Pizza in Evergreen for lunch after the hike, which you MUST do anytime you hike near Evergreen.

On Wednesday we took an ATV tour, which was cool and kind of scary. We used to ride ATVs on the Oregon sand dunes every summer when I was little, but this was riding up a continuous pile of rocks called a mountain. It was cool. Some people didn't have as much fun as others.

On Thursday we went white-water rafting with the same company, which was awesome. We all had a blast, and would do it again in a heartbeat. Also, this company, Mile Hi Rafting, had great prices.

Other highlights included games of Killer Bunnies, Spoons, a couple puzzles, good food, some naps and some training runs at 9000 feet. Those were hard but good for me. I got to run with my sister Marie for I think the first time ever. I would love it if we lived near each other and could do that all the time.
