The Dirty Dash

Last year, my friend said she wanted to do some sort of mud run in order to have a "dirty thirty" in honor of turning 30 years old. I thought the idea was wonderful. Today we did that.

We start with the before selfie.

The road was full of prettiness

Prettiness at Solder's Hollow

Still before

My phone was in the car, so this is after I cleaned off my clothes with their outside showers. I didn't touch my face, though, so my face is still pretty muddy.

Look at me, victorious.

Before Labor Day

My sister and her husband went to Hawaii. They left their son with mom and dad, and they left their dog with my other sister.

I asked my nephew why he wasn't smiling. He said he didn't want to smile. Don't be fooled. He loved hanging out with me.

 We decided to go for a hike.

We tired out the dog.

Angel's Landing

Two weeks ago I went to Zion National Park with some friends.  All of the pictures are from the hike up Angel's Landing. Apparently I'm not very good at this. The pictures are in reverse order.

 These are some of my favorite pictures.

You have the obligatory before pictures.

 Look at that face!

 I am triumphant!

The Cat Gods

Dogs are better than cats. There I said it. You can disagree. But you'd be wrong.

See, dogs are simple. They say, "Love me!" You love them. They love you back.

Cats say, "Love me!" You love them. They attack. 

Yesterday I got home from a meeting. I was feeling uneasy about a couple of things, so I decided to dawdle on my porch for a bit. A stray cat came by. I like fury creatures, so I bade it come nearer. I told the cat repeatedly that I don't have food. It's not my fault she doesn't understand English. She really wanted to be pet, though, and so I pet her. Sure, she'd attack here and there, but it wasn't bad... until it was. Drew blood she did. 

Anyway, that's just how cats are. There's no loyalty. You all know this. There really is no point to this post. I just wanted to point out that dogs are better than cats. They don't betray you.

I Went Repelling!

Today our ward had a ward activity where we hiked Battle Creek Falls. When we got to the falls, there were some people who were set up for repelling. They asked us if we wanted to repel. Half of us said yes. I was one of them. My friend took pictures.

Stewart Falls May 2017

Tonight I hiked Stewart Falls with some friends. I wasn't going to take pictures. Then I took a lot.
