Brett seems to think that he will be a great fisherman. He pictures himself a modern day Brad Pitt in "A River Runs Though It." I think that he wouldn't be able to be quiet or sit still long enough, but maybe someday we can give it a try.
This is where I think it looks like home. To be honest, until this year I didn't know that Utah could be this pretty. Growing up I just thought it was the desert like down at Zion National Park. Turns out I was wrong.
Jesse was such a good sport helping Emily across the creek. This was pretty early in the day, and the water wasn't exactly warm. What a good husband.
The falls goes though a hole in the rock, giving it the name Donut falls, and this picture doesn't do it justice. It's looks amazing. I didn't want to spend much time trying to get the greatest picture because I had an arm wrapped around a tree on the edge of a cliff and I was more than ready to take a few steps backwards.
I still have a death grip on the tree. I swear my husband has no fear, which should maybe worry me a little, but not for now.
Still on the cliff. So many pictures on the cliff. So scared.
Looking up above the Donut. I love narrow canyons with water falls. I think they are some of the prettiest views ever.
Once we got back to the car we drove a few miles further up Big Cottonwood Canyon to Brighton Ski Resort for the start of the trail up to Lake Mary. It turns out that it is a reservoir. It always amazes me that they will put dams on a small, high mountain creek to build it up. That would be so much work.
It was ridiculously windy once we made it up to the lake. Windy enough that Emily and I found a big boulder to take shelter behind while the guys skipped a few rocks. And by a few rocks I mean dozens. It is always really funny when Brett and Jesse get together. They lose about three years of maturity and lots of giggling occurs. I'm just glad that the four of us get along so well. I don't think the boys would survive if their wives didn't get along.
More pictures on a different cliff! What is the deal with my husband?!
