yesterday, i went with my sister lori and her boys ashton and gavin to hike in snow canyon. we did the johnson's arch trail, a two mile trail, so it was a little hike but lots of fun! i had been dying to get out and hike around, especially because the day was so beautiful--it was almost 60 degrees--and even though the trees are still bare, the sky was beautifully blue.
here are some pictures from the hike:
why hello, tevas, i missed you over the winter!
look at that sky :) *sigh*
and ashton pointed out that this rock formation looks like a hand. so, reach for the sky!

red rock and the skeleton tree
lori, ashton, and gavs! nice face, ash
love that rock, it looks painted. and the boys kept asking who carved and sculpted all the rocks.
trudging along! cool tree
launching rocks into the big puddle at the end of the trail
lori and i!
i'm definitely going to take advantage of being in southern utah this year by hiking as much as possible. i want to hike once a week (at least), especially because there are so many beautiful hikes so close to home! and now that it's warming up, i can't wait to get started.
