It's been a crazy summer and seems like it went by in a flash! Did it fly by for anyone else?? We are so excited for the fall and it's definitely our favorite time of year! We love the cooler days and the crisp fall nights, and this is when we find ourselves out exploring every weekend! It's a nice change after a hot, busy summer filled with crowds everywhere you go!
It's the Fourth of July weekend and definitely one of our favorite weekends of the year!! For us, the Fourth of July always involves: fireworks, barbecues, and getting outside. Today we decided that we would try and beat the heat with an early morning hike up the back side of Timpanogos Mountain.
This past week Todd went on a back packing trip in the back country of the Wasatch Mountains. We usually go out and explore together, but I sat this trip out since it was a little too extreme for me. I love to go camping and hike all day, but to carry a 50 lb pack straight up hill and sleep in a make shift lean-to is not my idea of fun.
I couldn’t help but think of the history of these prehistoric people who left this art on massive rock walls and what message they were trying to leave behind for others to see.
With a smirk on his face he told me tales of the Utah Raptor and informed me there were dinosaur tracks that were fossilized in the ground outside of Price, UT. When he promised to take me there on our way home from camping one weekend my inner twelve year old heart jumped for joy and couldn’t wait until I saw them in person.
To be honest, I was a little restless not knowing where we would end up that night but I was channeling my inner spirit goddess and knew this was going to be a trip I would never forget.
Walking for miles seems effortless when there is so much to look for and endless trails and ridges to follow.
