This last Tuesday, Eddie and Joseph took a walk. They walked all the way to the top of Mt. Timpanogos! A 19 mile round trip with a 1 mile elevation gain---OK, maybe that would qualify as a hike! I just wanted to put up some of the pictures that they took and I think these will tell the tale! I really want to make this trek. But I think I will need a few things before I make the attempt. I'd need at least one hiking pole, some better hiking shoes, a knee brace, an ankle support and an oxygen tank. But other than that, I'm good to go!
Just look at the pristine beauty at this elevation. It must have been breathtaking! Here is Joseph at the year round glacier formation. Many people will slide down this glacier and get hurt, like the one girl who had to be carried down in a stretcher with a broken ankle the same day as their hike. Not many people were around there on Monday. The boys passed several people on the way up, but none going down! They pretty much had the whole place to themselves!
It amazes me how much energy they have. They were none the worse for the wear afterwards. They were business as usual the next day. So why can't they bring their dishes upstairs after they eat? It boggles the mind.
