Little did I know that I was hitting the sweet spot on that day. As soon as I got into Provo Canyon, I could tell there was a plenty of color. As I drove east into Heber, the color was intensifying. I was beginning to feel that I was in for a special treat.
I completed my longest hike of the year today - 12.2 miles. My previous best was 8 miles. The purpose of today's hike was distance, not climbing. I can proudly say - MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!
