The other morning, I was up at 5:30am, fixed the “usual” (bacon, egg, and cheese biscuit) with a honey ginger latte, and headed out for a hike.
This is how I like to start my day at 9:00am!
I hiked to a near by bald named “John Rock,” and this was my view. Not a bad way to start the day is it?
The pups were more than content to hang out and enjoy the morning as well. The rock we are looking at is Looking Glass, another wonderful elevation hike.
On our way back home, I came around a curve and saw these little guys trying to terrorize the neighborhood garbage…
I slowed down to get a shot of one of them, but couldn’t stop for the traffic behind me.
Oh, sweet & bumbling baby bears are just adorable. They were rolling around the road, playing with their ears, and biting at garbage bags while mama was casually walking up someone’s driveway. They are always a pleasure to see—-from a distance.
The honey ginger latte I had with breakfast is a nice fall drink and has many health benefits from the local honey and spice of the ginger root. It is simple to make at home even if you don’t have an espresso machine.
Honey Ginger Latte
1 hot cup (6oz) of strong coffee
1/4t powdered ginger
*stir the honey and ginger into your coffee until dissolved and top with foamed milk. If you have no way to foam your milk, you can heat it on the stove and buzz it up with a whisk or immersion blender to get some air/foam in to it, and then top off your cup.
Enjoy the cafe and don’t forget to get out and explore!
