For just a moment, let's close our eyes and imagine something. (Don't actually close you're eyes—unless you have x-ray vision.)
Imagine waking up early on a warm spring day—but it isn't warm yet, it's still 20 degrees outside. And then imagine driving to a steep canyon—steep enough that the sun won't hit it until two in the afternoon. And then imaging hiking, for three hours, in the snow, with ankle socks on.
It was amazing!
Today I (along with Jason H. and Jared W. S.) went on the first hike of the spring up to Squaw Peak in Provo, UT. It's a beautiful hike, and was doubly so in the snow. Once we turned off the canyon trail and moved up the mountain the sun hit us, and it was warm and beautiful.
Below are a few pictures. Just click a thumbnail to see the full image size (they're not that big; I'll try to make them larger next time).
