It's taken me awhile to get use to Utah and actually say that I like it here. I guess since I'm buying a house here I probably should start LOVING it here. Well the best way to love Utah in my opinion is to go to the mountains. The mountains, the temples, and my friends are my top 3 things in Utah.
I decided to spend a couple of hours up Big Cottonwood Canyon today. It never disappoints.
I love the hike above the lake even though it's straight up for a mile. I attempted it today and started out pretty good. I made it to a giant snow hill going straight up that was so slick I just couldn't keep going. I ended up sliding down a hill and getting pretty muddy. I decided I would just have to wait a little longer to make it to the upper lake.
View of Silver Lake from as far as I could climb today.
After walking around the lake and enjoying the views I decided to head back down the canyon and find a spot along the river to eat my lunch and read my book.
Pretty sure laying on a big rock listening to this was a GREAT idea!
Nothing makes me happier than being outside! I can't wait until I can make this a weekly adventure!
