I've discovered one of the coolest things about having a significant other is having someone to go on adventures with. For those that have followed my blog for any real length of time, you know I go on a lot of adventures armed only with my camera and a tripod. Since the recent addition of a human, however, I've noticed I really do enjoy having a walking, talking buddy along for the ride.

We ventured out on our day off this week to go hike up to Hanging Lake. I'd never been there before and despite the iced-over snow we had to slip and slide our way up the course of the mile long trail, it was well worth the hike to see the sparkling turquoise water and listen to the waterfalls while we had the place to ourselves. It was a quick trip since I was dying to get my hands on some BBQ I'd been promised after the hike, but I'm excited to go back sometime later in the summer when the trail is a little less treacherous.
