Canyon excursions

On Saturday, when the weather was much nicer than today, we went to Timpanogos Cave. The kids did great! The trail is 3 miles roundtrip with lots of the trail being really steep, not including the walk through the cave, and they did the whole thing without any help from us.

This was at the very beginning of the trail.

One of the small tunnels along the trail.

Check out how much snow is still up there!

This is looking up at the point of the trail where the snow was. I'm glad the trail didn't go this way!

We tried to use the timer on the camera but had a hard time seeing exactly where it was aimed. :)

Here you can see the valley in between the mountains.

Another small tunnel along the trail.

In the cave.

This was the spot they call a "caramel sundae" if I'm remembering correctly.

It was hard to see what you were taking pictures of since it was super dark. :)

The Heart of Timpanogos

Before heading down.

This was on the way down, it took us about 1/4 of the time to get down than it did to go up.

The kids having fun on the rocks along the trail.

We also took advantage of a nice day last weekend and headed up Provo Canyon. We don't really enjoy the winters in Utah, but we do love going to the canyon in the summer!

This is a fun "log swing" the kids found.
