On June 22 we (Sarah, Jordan, Jonathan and myself) took an afternoon hike up to South Willow Lake in the Stansbury Mountains. Except for some snow on the trail and some briskly running streams that we had to cross it was a pretty smooth hike. The scenery was spectacular. I would like to think that was what took my breath away, but alas, it it being so out of shape that cause the periodic (about every 2-3 minutes) pauses on the trail. Oh well, that gave me time to take lots of pictures. I posted a slide show of the pictures I took We thought this would be a 4 hours hike, but it was more like 7 hours. The kids didn't have to carry me off the mountain and we made it down before the big thunderstorm rolled in. We all have a great time and that makes for a successful hike.
I am the father of 4 great children and two incredible daughters-in-law. I have been married to the same amazingwoman for over 26 years. I enjoy life especially when I am outdoors. I am employed as the Environmental Manager for a mining company.
I think that the Disney character that I'm most like would have to be
Aladdin. I'm not sure if this is because it was my favorite Disney movie as
a child ...

My sister Kimberly is 10 years my junior. She is among the most adventuresome and accomplished of my siblings. She is married to Sione Fifita and they have one son Viliami who just turned two. She has been a professor of English in Hawaii and currently works for a scrapbooking supply company (Stampin Up). She has actually changed jobs more often than I have! She is writing a novel (has been for years) which I am eagerly anticipating. She has always been a great sister and in some sense is the glue that keeps all six of us bonded together. It has been nice to have her family back on the mainland and to live closer to them.
