South Willow Lake

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.

Seven hours? Yikes. They would have had to carry me off the trail--well, actually, one of those medic helicopters would have had to carry me off the trail.

There were a couple of times that I started considering the option of being removed from the mountain. It was a good thing I had Jonathan to stay with me. He kept me motivated even when I had to stop every 2-3 minutes.
