Father's Day 2018 - Barrier Lake Lookout

For Father's Day, we took my photo averse father-in-law on a hike up to the Barrier Lake Lookout, with a total elevation gain of about 515m or so. Considering his age, he kicked ass up this minor peak. He didn't want to be in any of the summit photos, so all I got was a surreptitiously taken shot of him with Anita as they rounded past the first viewpoint with Mt. Baldy in the background.

Quick quirky story about dad-in-law: he has this inexplicable love for a terrible Chinese buffet not far from our place. Of all the delicious restaurants we could have taken him that night, he wanted this buffet. Imagine if someone asked you for your favourite sushi joint, and you said you like it fresh from the gas station. Queue the instant furrowed brows, and looks of judgement from your friends.

Anyways, I don't know where I'm going with this... so enjoy the couple quick photos from the hike, and a wolverine pelt we saw on display.

A wolverine pelt! Yes, wolverines are real. They're also occasionally known as Hugh Jackmans. True story.

Father's day Gin Saison. I wish I could claim to have bought this for the father-in-law, but he doesn't drink. So I'll drink it on his behalf.
