we wanted to go to zion’s or bryce canyon to celebrate our birthday weekend (david’s birthday is may 10th and mine is may 12 — presh, isn’t it?), but we couldn’t get away for more than one night, so we decided to hit up our own backyard for some quality time with our pal mother nature.

the beauty of living in salt lake city is that we really could drive 20-30 minutes in any direction and be setting up camp. but for this trip we headed north to the trails around snowbasin. we “backpacked in” — all of 3/4 of a mile — and then we scoped out a nice ‘lil spot with a view of the mountain sunset, baked some sweet potatoes and feasted on smores until we got sleepy.

after breakfast in the morn’ we took off on a three-hour hike with a beautiful view of pineview reservoir. we took our sweet time and it was oh so lovely.
