Climbing Closer to the Summit

Today, Ann and I climbed up more than half way to 4.1 miles. We had a 2,100 foot elevation increase on this wonderfully beautiful journey on a day with perfect hiking weather. Another key milestone for today was the fact that we reached 9,500 feet of altitude on the hike. That is the highest I have ever been hiking.

Timpooneke Delight

One of trails that leads to the summit of Timp is the Timpooneke (tim-poo-new-key) Trail. This morning, after the rain stopped, I drove up into American Fork Canyon and went to the trail. My intention was to hike about 1.4 miles in on the trail, count it as a bit of practice for the 14.2 mile hike to the summit and back.

Johnson’s Hole or Bowl?

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!

Dawn of Productivity

While hiking this Sunday morning, I was quite productive. I was able to listen to 8 chapters of scriptures, listen to the framework of the Sunday School lesson we will do at home today, enjoy a wide range of spiritual music, and of course, enjoy the beauty of creation.

This Is How I Hear Him

There is a theme going around in social media and church circles using the #HearHim hashtag. As soon as I heard about it, I knew I wanted to do a video sharing my testimony of how I #HearHim.
