enchanted forest

Yesterday we went on an awesome hike.  It was foggy out, a little damp, but totally beautiful.  We felt like we were in a rain forest.  The scenery was beautiful.

Pictures don’t do this justice.  It was breathtaking.

Thank god for no wind.  Getting to the top was scary enough, one mistake in your footing and you could tumble miles down a cliff.  Don’t let the smile fool you, I was jittery from nerves!

Taylor is like a monkey.  He climbed all over the place.  Henry and I stayed back.

I love the fog.

Our guide dog.

Beautiful hike leads to beautiful pizza.

This pizza was awesome.  A simple garlic and olive oil base, with chicken, broccoli, onions,  bell peppers, and pepper jack cheese.   The perfect post hike meal.  With a nice glass of David Hill Farmhouse red wine.

A great ending to a wonderful day.

    How gorgeous! I’m so jealous right now. And relieved that I’m not the only one who loves fog. 🙂

    Love the smiling photos of Henry. You’ve posted several in which he seems to be grinning with delight. Such fun

    Beautiful! How dreamy, mystical & magical! It reminds me of the drive from Salem to the coast. I is like driving through a rain forest (with Tsunami signs along the way). Absolutely dreamy!

    Do you make your own pizza crust or do you buy it? Love the wine pic!

      We bought this pizza dough from a pizza shop in town. However, I have a good pizza crust recipe here: It was the second batch because Henry ate the first batch!!!!

      1. 1 T pure maple syrup

      2. 1 1/2 C. Hot water

      3. 1/4 ounce baking yeast

      4. 2 C whole wheat pastry flour

      5. 1 1/2 C whole wheat flour

      6.. 1 1/4 tsp basil

      7. 1 14 tsp sea salt

      pinch of oregano, rosemary, and garlic. Lots of garlic!

      8. 2 T olive oil

      Place syrup and water in a bowl, pour in yeast (don’t stir!) and let sit for 5 min. Stir in remaining ingredients. Knead dough on a floured surface for 5-10 minutes. Should be sticky! Allow dough to rise in a warm spot, covered for 45 minutes- 1 hour. Cut dough in 1/2 for two pizzas. Preheat oven to 400 and bake. (we added goat cheese, potatoes, butternut squash, bacon, parm, and shallots.) Bake for 10-15 minutes. Enjoy!
