"Time Out" from Reading (4) - Unearthly

"Time Out" from Reading
(click on the link for an explanation of this feature & to join in)

Seriously, I can't belive how sick I've been!!! I had a horrible cold, then something else came along, then I got the stomach flu! I'm doing the best I can!

A couple weeks ago, I went to Muir Woods National Park with my mother, grandmother, & little boy. I've been wanting to go here for a while, & after reading Unearthly, by Cynthia Hand last month, I was even more determined to go. The book is set in Wyoming & mentions the outdoors & forests so much that I thought visiting a place like this would be a perfect activity for this feature!

There's also t-shirt Friday mentioned in Unearthly, the designated day of the week where the high school students wear a casual t-shirt to school. I purposely wore my Clint Eastwood shirt to incorporate the book into my day just a little bit more.

I caved to my little boy's crying & let him drag his blanket around through the mud - nothing a washing machine can't fix easily enough!

Lovely photos. There is a place near here called Cathedral Grove that is very similar in look.

Sorry you've been so sick, Liz. How wonderful that the book you read inspired you to take this trip. Your little boy is adorable and the photos glorious.
