Being in Nature

Whether its hiking or digging, I tend to spend a lot of time outside. I love it though. I love being a part of nature. I love being tuned into that which surrounds me.

October 4, 2009

7 of my co-workers and I decided to take our one day off and go to Zion National Park to hike Angels Landing. I admit, I'm not the most well traveled person but I honestly think Zion is one of the most beautiful places in the world... I am biased though, I have much love for the desert.

After hiking up some grueling switchbacks we hit the Spine. The hike wasn't over yet.

That's noting a little In-n-Out can't fix
