get-a-way


One of the best things about living in Utah is our proximity to mountains. In just ten minutes, we can escape all the noise and beeps and buzzes and find ourselves winding up a mountain trail. 




A few nights ago, we tried out the White Pine Trail up Little Cottonwood Canyon. Of course, with little legs, we don't make it very far, but no matter. This particular trail is beautiful and you can see out over the valley. The birds were chirping, there were butterflies popping about, the river trickled back and forth over the trail. We even saw a moose lumbering about below us. And the smell. The perfect blend of pine and soil and clear air.





Just the best.

I'm going to try this one out. I might not get far either...though, I have "big" legs, as opposed to half your family's little legs, they may only have the strength and stamina to travel as far as your little legs do. :)

Next time, I should come with you.

I can't let Todd see this or he'll sink into a deep depression. He misses the mountains so much!
