On that one precious day off for John, we decided to spend it by hiking up East Canyon. We hiked 6 miles out and back, up to 2700 feet in elevation. I've done these hikes a few times, but this was the second time I made it to the very top. This was a rather easy hike (for everyone else) but we sure had a tough time getting up there. We are so out of shape! :( We need to train more often especially with our Hawaii trip coming up in 2 months. the trails there are 10 X more strenuous!
beautiful view from the "secret" spot
this tree has 4 little stools for people to sit and enjoy the view. hence, we named it the secret spot. The plan was to bring a picnic basket and blanket on our next trip back ... I highly doubt we will follow through with the plan. It was hard enough for us to hike this far up, let alone with a picnic basket!
John brought a souvenir home with him...
