Going to miss the high country as fall and winter move in, but I'm looking forward to another big trip through another section of Capitol Reef planned for next month. In the mean time, I'm spending virtually every spare moment researching home improvement diy tips and tricks all while still updating my bathrooms and more at home, learning lots in the process.
As evidenced by the mountain trees, summer is coming to a rapid end. I for one am certainly ready for some cooler temperatures and (hopefully) smoke-free air...and decreased power bills.
Went fishing over the weekend. Lennox said he was going to catch the biggest fish again, just like last time. Well...he was right. And it was the only fish for either of us. It was yummy too. 🙂🎣🐟
It was worth the extra little drive out to the Fort Bridger Mountain Man Rendezvous on the way back from a relaxing weekend at the cabin.
Caves are cool. Literally, they are cool and a jacket will make them more comfortable to be in. What looks like icicles are not formed by the cooler temperatures affecting the dripping water however. They are called stalagtites, formed my mineral residue and buildup from the dripping water.
Neck deep in bathroom makeovers and some other catch up projects at home has grounded me for a bit. I have a hard time stopping home improvement projects once I start, even for a brief rest, even to go out on a hike. But I sure am thankful I got to chaperone my daughter's field trip up to Timp Cave this last week. It was a great excuse to get back up in the mountains again. More importantly, it was a great time with Ellory and some of her friends and she enjoyed the trip very much.
I've been neck deep in bathroom makeovers over the last week, with lots more work yet to do. Relaxing in a hot tub, or chilling in a cold tub like these guys all sounds nice to me right about now.
Quite a show in the skies tonight. #electricuniverse
The legend of Timpanogos in how the mountain got its name is as unauthentic as it gets, but her heart is certainly real. #timpanogos #caves
