Eric and I were the first to arrive at the Lodge. Nestled in the mountains, with it's 6 bedrooms and a large kitchen, Nick and Alison found the perfect place for our pre-Thanksgiving get-together.
With the help of the 6 dozen eggs contributed by Ben and Danthu -- Matt, Amber, Alex, Adam, Nick, and Alison made a delicious brunch before our hike. As you can see, Asher helped too.
The Voting Game
While I was out shooting the stars, several others were playing The Voting Game. At one point I heard Eric and Amber singing the national anthem. I also found out who got voted the mostly likely one of the group to yell at you for not recycling.
My attempt at watching the sunrise was unsuccessful from our side of the lake/valley. It was a pretty morning though -- watching the birds swimming in the lake with the clouds moving overhead.
It was so peaceful and serene, I even attempted to create my own Moving Art.
We all shared a delicious meal prepared by everyone and missed the company of Matt and Amber who had to head back early.
Our Last Day
We spent the morning cleaning up the lodge and relaxing before having to head home. It was a great weekend catching up with old friends and meet new ones. With all the activity, I sometimes forgot that we were in the mountains.
