It's a beautiful world

Friday afternoon we headed to the mountains.  It was nearly 20 degrees cooler there.  It was the most sane thing to do.

We went to one of several Silver Lakes.  I'm not sure if the same person named them all Silver Lake or if they were copying each other.  Either way, it can get a little confusing when you're a newbie and trying to google your way around.

It was absolutely beautiful.

And I guess the sun was bright.  Here 2/3 of the children have their eyes closed.

We walked on a path all around the lake.

There were a mama and 6 ducklings on that log.

As we passed another group of hikers, Adam said, "Do you notice a lot of these people don't look very...healthy?"

I said, "Yes, this is an easy trail.  This is for indoorsey people."

(Picked by me so my knee wouldn't give me any trouble.)

Adam said, "We've got to get your knee stronger."

He wants harder hikes--I'll keep working on this knee.

We drove up and over the mountain to Park City.

What a sad world it would be without mountains.

We drove around Park City, seeing the sights, then dropped into Salt Lake.  We went to the Church History Museum which is what we tried to do Monday but it was closed for Pioneer Day.

Raise your hand if you think it's ironic that the Church History Museum was closed for Pioneer Day....

We had a nice time there and walked around City Creek a little.  By the time we got home in the evening, it was slightly cooler.

Mission accomplished.
