climbing to where the sky was once sea.


timpanogos cave

i scoffed yesterday when told the hike was a mere mile and a half.

no problem, i am in fighting form.

the thing is when given only a mile and half to climb more than a thousand feet in the air, well that's tricky.

okay not so much tricky as downright hard (miserable).

and then there's this issue of fear of heights that seems to worsen with age.

but at the end of it all i got to explore a cave that outdates the dinosaurs (yes outdates the dinosaurs!).

oh, and the view was okay, too.

I love Timp cave! There's a good chance my parents house is somewhere in that picture.

I'm so glad you get to experience these small but fantastic pleasures.

I've done this hike. Yes the oxygen gets pretty thin up there but the views are so gorgeous! So glad you're enjoying Utah to the fullest. I want to hear about the play you're doing so I can come be in the audience ;)

I join the group that envies the simple pleasure of making the arduous hike with you. Thank for the view in lieu of our absence.

I did that hike with my work which consisted of about 50 teenage girls, so I understand you when you say it's not very fun! It's so worth it once you get inside the cave though!
