Hiking Discovery

December 17, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Yesterday, my family and I went hiking.  We didn’t know where to go, but had a few ideas.  Plan A fell through…we couldn’t find the road to get to where we wanted to go.  Plan B was to just drive til we found something interesting.  Plan B it was!  So we drove awhile until we found a spot that looked promising.  From the road we could see some low mountains and what looked like it might be a bit of a path.  So we parked the car and headed for the hills.  Well were we in for a surprise!  As we walked, we made the most amazing discoveries!  Amazing rock structures surrounded us.  It was incredibly beautiful.  Every twist and turn led to a new view and new rock formations.  Here we were, in the middle of nowhere, at a random stop, and THIS is what we found?!  Incredible!  This was just “random” beauty…not a national park or famous hiking spot…just a spot we “happened” to choose.  What a beautiful place we live in!  What a gift to get to experience such beauty.

So…my boys took off to explore on their own.  My older daughter and husband headed in another direction while I stayed with my youngest daughter.  Periodically we all re-connected to check in and share our discoveries.  And I, of course, documented it all with my camera.  Here are some of the gorgeous views we experienced…

This spot reminded me of the famous Antelope Canyon in the United States.  I’ve never been there, but have certainly seen lots of images of it.  This place was a lot different, but the sweeping, swooping curves of the rock had its similarities.
