How I Spent My Labor Day Weekend
Had a great time with three of my four brothers, a daughter, nieces, a nephew and friends hiking down from the top of the Subway in Zion National Park. Fun people, amazing things to see, wonderful food. One of the great things about living in Salt Lake is the natural beauty of the area. Living here my whole life, I've spent a lot of time in Arches, Zion, Bryce Canyon, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef, the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, Grand Teton and many other national parks and monuments as well as a lot of camping in the mountains and deserts of the area. Going down the Subway again this weekend reminded me what an embarrassment of riches this area has for natural beauty and recreational opportunities. Got out of the whole thing with only a large blister on my foot and a blackened big toenail which I'll undoubtedly lose in a few weeks. And I'm still pretty sore today. But it's a small price to pay for that experience.
