Utah Day 18- Photowalk #2


Today Dad and I decided to take another photo walk. But this time we headed to the mountains. We were going to go to Golden Spike (where the east and the west railroad came together) but we got kind of a late start. The boys were cranky this morning, and I wanted to run back to the big taxidermy store and get pants I saw for 9 dollars. Seriously, a good deal since they were even more marked down at 7 dollars! Sweet!

Anyway, we decided to go to Mt. Timpanogos instead. But then the trail head to the cave was closed. We went anyway. I stopped off at the ranger station and got a list of trails in the area. We decided we'd like to see some water so off we went to a place called Crystal Lake. Now, I don't know if it's crystal clear because we never made it to the lake but we had a great time taking pictures.

We took the boys with us today and wore them on the hike. It wasn't too bad, although I was pretty tired by the end. I got some great pictures and my dad and I had a good long talk. The boys did marvelously, sleeping the whole way up and back down. The paper the rangers gave me said the trail was 2.5 miles long. I think we went all but that half mile. We were close, but it was getting more steep and rocky as we went and the sun had already passed the ridge. So it was getting dark. And the last think I want to do is hike downhill on a rocky path in the dark. So we went home.

Here are a few of my favorite pictures. Enjoy!



  1. Those are great pictures! How nice that the boys were happily worn on your hike. That's good exercise for you! Great pictures!

  2. I'd love to know why I am suddenly showing up as Owings Mills, MD on all of the blogs with live feeds. That's not even close to me! Haha!

  3. Sounds like a fun time. I really like that last picture -- looks like crossed legs

  4. Ahhh look, parts of the world where things are green! I do miss that quite a bit.

  5. It was the best day I have had in a long time, Sweets. Thanks for being my daughter. I couldn't ask for a better one.
