Another Birthday...

My birthday this year was on a Saturday, which meant I didn't need to take off from work.  I slept in and with the weather looking iffy I decided I would plan my day in an impromptu fashion.  With the late wake-up, I ended up deciding to hike some peaks outside of Mountain Home.  I left the house around 11am and headed over.  My first peak attempt failed due to access issues so I moved on to Peak 4008', a barely noticeable top along US-20.  This was a very straightforward hike across sage and grassland.  The "peak" has pretty unremarkable views but it surely is a seldom visited area.  After completing this hike, I decided to head home rather than hike a second peak and risk delaying dinner.

Dinner was at The Twisted Timber, a local place known for good beer and more recently, pretty good pizza!  The three of us had a great meal and we even got Claire home early enough for her usual bedtime.  Getting old is no fun but at least I had fun doing it?
