Climb Every Mountian
Climb every mountain, search high and lowFollow every byway, every path you know.Climb every mountain, ford every stream,Follow every rainbow, 'til you find your dream!A dream that will needall the love you can give,Every day of your lifefor as long as you live.Climb every mountain, ford every stream,Follow every rainbow, 'til you find your dream!
From the Sound of Music Music by Rodgers and Hammerstein

Our friend Danielle was in town this weekend so we decided to go hiking on Friday night. We hiked Battlecreek Canyon up to the falls and continuing to the trail junction for the Great Western Trail. The view was beautiful and the weather was perfect for a summer evening hike.

My husband loves to hike. If he had his way he would hike all year long and travel all over the world to hike. I on the other hand like to hike also but in a different way than Jim. My idea of a fun hike is a nice hike that isn't too strenuous and takes only a couple of hours. On this particular hike it it is a steady climb of 2.46 miles to where we stopped to turn around. I think Jim could have ran! Hiking is his happy place and I love that about him. The funny thing is I can run 5 miles no problem but ask me to hike 5 miles and it is a struggle. Funny how we are all different. My goal this year is to hike to the top of Timpanogos Mountain. Jim said we are going to have to do a few more practice hikes before he takes me to the top. I can't wait.
