we rolled into camp with just an hour of daylight left in the day. we stayed on the rim of lily lake. the view from our tent was beautiful. the lilies were in full bloom! our campsite may have been the best campsite we have had to this day. and gordon brought our hammock. sheer excitement filled my face when he told me on the drive up that he brought it. i was in heaven to say the least. we had a campfire, roasted marshmallows, and enjoyed the great outdoors, just the two of us (and the dogs, they're always with us too).
on saturday we woke up, gordon made his famous camping breakfast of eggs, bacon, and potatoes, then we were off for a day of hiking. the weather was perfect: overcast and cool. we even got rained on (there was no lightning so we were okay to keep hiking...safety first kids!). we decided to hike bald mountain, which is really more of a summit. we climbed for about an hour and half up a very rocky path. the dogs worked their tails off with all the jumping they did (we helped on the big rocks of course). i love taking them with us. we get comment after comment about how they are the smallest dogs people have ever seen on trails. i take pride in that. my dogs are not wuss dogs.
the hike was beautiful! the view from 11943 feet is nothing short of awesome. you see just how many lakes and mountain ranges surround you when you're up that high. i loved it.
on the way home we stopped by provo falls. another beautiful spot!
the unitas have so much to offer...can't wait to venture up there again.
