Take a Hike!

I spend a lot of my time in the city. In the U.S., places like Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and Portland. In Mexico, places like Guadalajara, Mexico City, and Ensenada. All of these areas are to some extent urban and have all of the problems that are inherent in city life.

Overcrowding, homelessness, grime, and concrete. Lots of it. So occaisionally I need to get out and see the world as God has made it.

Here's a few pictures taken the last couple of weeks as my wife Chelle and I have taken time to unwind and reconnect after a long summer apart..

The first few are from Cedar Breaks National Monument in Utah. This is a spectacular place. You can camp there only from May through September, but it is an easy day trip from either Zion or Bryce National Park and well worth the visit.

The second batch was from my first visit to Lake Tahoe. I know it can get crowded there, but a short hike will get you into some pretty amazing places... and you can be totally alone.

Beautiful place.

I like how you worked in the, "I'm pretending to push the huge boulder!" pic. Nice...

Who said I was pretending? It took me an hour to move that thing.
