Scott with his new GPS planning out our routes and mileage. He LOVES that thing. It has come to bed with us all 4 nights since he got it on Friday.
I wore my mesh tennis shoes (not for tennis, what word should I have used?) for the looooong hike in the snow/mud. Freezin on the way back to the hotel!
Here is the famous Thor's Hammer. We were so lucky to have such blue skies!!! Wow. We were sure we'd taken a wrong turn and had hiked well past the 3 mile Peekaboo loop. In reality, hiking in snow just takes a lot longer and is much harder. I've heard that hiking in snow counts for 2x as much as on regular ground. Is that true? The funny part is that the Peekaboo loop was just a side trip from our planned route, so maybe that's why it felt extra long.
Here is what the trail looked like. With literally only 4 other people in the park, it would have been easy to follow animal footprints instead and get off track!
Scott was getting a litttle fiesty...
Let me tell you how great it is to get
and walk around. and breathe fresh air. and love your life.
It is Great :)We LOVED doing this in the winter to enjoy all the snow capped hoo-doos! So fun!
