We woke up the next morning with an adventure ahead. After looking over the available trails we took the easiest one, the Wallowa Lake Overlook. 

Bethany loved the fact these horses were practically our neighbors. There was actually a sign that said "Beware! We bite. Pet at your own risk. My daughter was willing to take that risk and after feeding the horses some leftover hay off of the ground they were all happy to let my kids pet them.

The trail we chose was an easy one. We only brought water with us, since we didn't plan to be gone too long. 

This picture does not do justice to what we were looking at. My kids made me nervous standing there as there was a deep ravine in which the Wallowa River roared down.

Again the picture doesn't do it justice. This river is loud as it crashes down the mountain. Swift and scary, but beautiful.

I actually expected the overlook to be a lot closer to the lake, but still the view was beautiful.

Elisha took this picture.

More to come!

Those are great shots on the mountain. Good job! And yes, Hailey mixed all the colors herself and then painted it onto a basic traced outline of the painting. I was surprised at how close she got to the original painting's colors.
