A Perfect Saturday

Yesterday was just perfect. We finally went on a hike, which is something I've been wanting to do since I moved here. It was a short hike, we only did Ensign Peak, but it was beautiful. I love the outdoors, and yesterday made me miss girls camp, living on a ranch and hunting. One of my favorite things about the mountains is seeing the long grass moving with the wind. It's as if it is making a silent musical melody with it's movements. I also loved seeing the various flowers and bugs. Once we got to the top Chauncey and I had a mini picnic. We talked and looked out at the Salt Lake Valley. We could see state street and how far it went. We could see everything. It was breathtaking.

Many of my friends on facebook have already seen a shorter version of this story, but I thought I would elaborate on it. As we were leaving, Chauncey and I were stopped by an older man. He said "Hey! I want to ask the little girl something" I really wanted to look around to see if their was some small child around us, but there wasn't. Which meant he was talking to me! I know I look young, and yesterday I looked younger than usual with two pigtail braids, but really...a little girl? Anyways, so we stopped and he said "I have a riddle for you" (pointing at me). I said okay...and he gave me some silly riddle about how does a bike stand by itself or something. To be honest I don't remember what it was about. I said I don't know and he gave me the answer. Chauncey and I chucked and started walking to our car. Once we were about to pull away he pulled up next to us in his car and gave us another riddle! It was really strange. So there's that story. Now for pictures!

Just getting started
