The Reef

April 15, 2008
The boy and I have been in an Outdoor Recreation class. What this means is that BYU gives us two credit hours to do the things we’d be skipping class to do anyway. Very considerate of them, don’t you think? A couple of weekends ago, the class went on a field trip of sorts to Capitol Reef National Park. The purpose of the trip, as I understood it, was to walk around in the desert, take pictures of us being Extreme, and practice Safety. The scenery, it turns out, was actually breathtaking. Cassiday Arch, pictured to the right, is now my favorite arch. The on-trail dialogue, for which the boy and I have become legendary, was superb. Unfortunately, there were no wild animal attacks or serious injuries, but other than that it was a great trip. I feel so lucky to be living in Utah, so close to awesome stuff like Capitol Reef. I feel for all those kids who live in boring places like Missouri or Kansas with no scenery anywhere.

    hey now, this is from a MO girl, who went hiking and camping and spelunking to her hearts content– so don’t go dissing on my state! (-:

    seriously, you’d think with all your spare time after finishing Harry Potter 2 that you could find time to squeeze a new post in. šŸ™‚
