On Sunday afternoon we decided to find someplace beautiful to spend some time. We drove up Little Cottonwood Canyon to the Albion basin (no we didn't stop at the Oktoberfest). At the end of the public road is the parking place for the Cecret Lake trailhead. No the description said "interpretive trail" which I envisioned as a boardwalk on a flat surface to a pond. Well, in actuality, it was a real trail with some inclines and breathtaking scenery. We all made it to the top (so Sherrie and I working out every night must be paying off). I hadn't been up to Alta since I was much younger. I vaguely remember a drive up there with my grandparents. I will go back again (during the non-snow months - I wouldn't want to drive that road with snow on it).
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.
