And it was awesome.
I LOVE hiking and I've wanted to do the Bells Canyon hike for a while now. It climbs up the mountain and passes two huge and beautiful waterfalls. I'm a big fan of waterfalls--who isn't? Anyway, because my weekends are full for pretty much the rest of the summer we decided to hike it after work yesterday which meant that we were going to have to go full speed ahead to beat the setting sun. It is typically a 4+ hour hike and we only had 3 1/2 hours to do it in.
Hubster and I left work and started driving to the trailhead at the mouth of the canyon. We were a bit nervous; it was pouring rain. We didn't want to become a story in the paper the next day about hikers getting stranded!
|That is a troubling amount of precipitation...|
|The reservoir at the start of the hike--pretty!|
|Before getting completely soaked|
|Love this man!|
|Gorgeous overlook before the second waterall|
|50% of us are wearing Ragnar shirts...|
|Camera HATES the water|
|Can you find us in this photo? Hint--top right.|
We had a race against the setting sun as we left the waterfalls. We had to book it! Mother nature left us with a beautiful sunset as we got to the bottom of the trailhead. Perfect ending to a perfect hike!
|Love my Utah mountains!|
