BIG HIKE!!

Last week Bryan was able to go with the Scouts to do an amazing hike, The Narrows. I must say I was a little upset when I found out he was going, I've been wanting to do this hike for years and the closest I've come is starting from the bottom and hiking my way up for a few miles. He said it was one of the most beautiful hikes he's ever been on. I'm sure being there in person is a lot more breathtaking!
Here they are getting ready to hike in....16 miles of beautiful torture! They camped overnight in the canyon and finished up the next day. Bryan described the hike as walking on bowling balls. Your crossing water, zig zagging back and forth, constantly slipping on rocks. Your ankles are continually rolling from the unsteady footing. The day after he got home he was pretty sore and his ankles really felt it. But I am so proud of him for completing the hike....Good Job!!!

Isn't it just beautiful?

Love the pics. Beautiful. They are such great Scout Leaders. Wish-ful thinking, that they might still be Scout Leaders in 3 years. Treyson would love to go camping & hiking w/ them.

Oh, that is so awesome!! One day we'll complete the hike, but the part we did do was amazing.
