Just Ten Minutes from Our House!

What a good looking pair!

This afternoon we drove to Big Willow Canyon, which is just about ten minutes from our house. The sun was out and the freshly fallen snow from last night was dry and sparkley. We hiked for about an hour up into this beautiful secluded canyon. On either side of us huge slabs of granite and quartzite towered over us. Behind us lay the whole Salt Lake Valley, the Oquirrh Mountians on the other side of the valley, the great Salt Lake, and Antelope Island.
We “scouted” the area for good summertime rock climbs and planned out a good summit day trip for when it warms up.
We hiked until there were no footprints left, the trail was buried under several feet of snow. Before we headed back down to the car I decided to give into the little girl inside of me who was giddy around all this fluffy, beautitful, clean snow…I made a snow angel. I think that’s the first snow angel I’ve made in a good 5 years. It was still as fun as I remember.
