Here we are at the finish line. We made it! Coming down was hard because I forgot how slippery steep inclines are on the way down. Wall said I looked like an old lady shuffling along. How embarrassing. We had a great time though and tomorrow we will tell the elders that we are quite the hikers. LOL. Our walking every morning for an hour really helped I think because it wasn't that bad. It was worth it!! After the hike we had a B-B-Q and a fun visit with Denise's family. They live at the base of the mountain. What a beautiful place to live.

The Sleeping Giant For Labor Day!
Here is the Sleeping Giant. It is like Timpanogos only it is the shape of the giants head. It is a famous hike done by everyone who comes here. Our missionaries do it at least every 2 transfers so they all get a chance to climb it at least once. We have never gone because we have seen pictures of them going up and all the craziness. When the Karratti's said "hey, you can do it" we thought we would give it a try. It was a great hike, about 5 miles at least and very beautiful when we got to the top and looked at the valley below. We met several people along the way who walk up every morning for their exercise. Hmmmm.
