Fall Trip to Cedar Breaks & Bryce Canyon (Wordless Wednesday)

We had a fabulous time staying a week in Brian Head in mid October. We went hiking every day, swimming nearly every day (an indoor pool made that nice), and enjoyed the beautiful scenery. Many of our hikes were at high elevation -- as much as 11,000 feet -- and with Katie going through a "mommy-only" phase, I carried her on a lot of them. It made me very grateful for the fitness I've worked so hard for this year.

I went up a day early with the seven youngest kids. DH, who had some work things to finish up and Lillian, who had a school project to finish, came up later. Our first hike was to an amazing waterfall.






Cedar Breaks:






My five little girls in a row. I'm so excited they'll get another sister in February:

Bryce Canyon:





Notice the chipmunk posing perfectly for this one?




On the Twisted Forest Trail, among the Ancient Bristlecone Pines, some of the oldest trees in the world:
And we saw lots of these:
