On a much more positive note than yesterday, I got out for a great hike with my best friend today. It was a gorgeous day, not a cloud in the sky. We hiked up White Pine trail in Little Cottonwood Canyon, UT (and yes it killed me to be there and NOT climb, lol!).
Our goal was to get to the lake but when we reached mile 2.45 we lost all trace of the trail in the snow. However, we weren't dissapointed! We decided to just to relax a bit before our hike back down, it was so nice just to *breathe* the amazing mountain air. I made a snow angel and my bestie and I made a snowman. It was great!
Our Snowman :)
The hike was absolutely gorgeous. The trail was almost entirely covered with snow after the first half mile but we kept going and didn't have any issues til we lost the trail. On our hike down we decided to keep acting like kids and run! We ran everywhere we could (and some places we probably shouldn't have, lol). We splashed in puddles and ran thru the running water (it was like a waterfall on the trail.). It was amazing, we're already planning our next adventure. Here's some more pictures from today. Enjoy :)
The crazy high river rushing down
Beautiful Blue Skies
What most of the trail looked like...
Reached an elevation of 8,627 ft before we turned around.
Our view at our highest point
And more of the sunburn...
Who wants to come rub aloe on my back, lol?
Do you have anything fun planned for the summer?
