Two Grumpy Parents Take a Hike!

Scott and I both woke up grumpy last Saturday.  I don't know why.  We just didn't want to do anything!  There were a lot of chores that needed doing around the house.  There were a lot of things we could have done.  But we were too grumpy.


So we decided to drink ourselves into oblivion.  

And by drink, I mean, drink in the beauty of nature.  Which always makes everyone feel better!  We went for a long walk.  Up Provo Canyon.

We saw the beautiful Provo River with lush green growing on either side.

We saw beautiful waterfalls!

Gorgeous mountains reaching up to the clouds!

Precious mountain wildflower blooms just emerging.

Sweet little paths through the shady trees.

Soft light trickling through to the underbrush.

Beautiful textures and colors, even in nature's death.

And one of these!  Can you see it?

Look closer....

There it is!

 A sweet little happy snake!

 And then we saw a bug.  A beautiful crawling beetle.  My favorite!

 And we felt a LOT better!  Have you taken a nature walk this week?  Maybe you should.
