Regaining a piece of my sanity

As some of you may or may not know, I love to hike. Up until I started back to school I went hiking almost every Wednesday with a group of hiking friends. I always considered it a way to put my life in balance, to get out in nature and away from the city and the stresses of my life. I have severely missed my hiking time.

Sunday my hiking group went up to Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort. Half of the group took the tram up and hiked down. I was in the half that hiked up and took the tram down. 3 hours of intense up hill, but it was worth it!

Foxy and I almost to the top. I was about to die but couldn't help but smile because, well look at how freaking beautiful it is there! How can you not smile?
This is the view from the tram going down. The leaves were just starting to change and it looked amazing. Breathtaking actually. I'm such a nature girl.

When we got to the bottom Oktoberfest was going on and we all enjoyed some much needed refreshment in the way of German Beers. Foxy and I both got Bratwursts and enjoyed watching people do the chicken dance. It was a great day and I finally felt back to normal again.

Damn. I always get homesick for fall, and your pix. aren't helping! And I hate that you look like a model in every picture. Whore.
