May Camping Trip 2015

Friday morning I set out with some friends to go camping.  I felt like everyone who took pictures brought out these intense cameras.  I felt a little silly with my 10-year-old coolpix nikon (or nikon coolpix... I don't know what it is).  So instead of sharing my pictures on facebook, I'm just gonna put them here.  If anyone magically has a link to my blog, they are welcome to see them.

Warning, I am having a difficulty rotating the pictures... a common problem for me I think.  I'm keeping them because you need them in your life :)

Anyway, we start with Goblin Valley

 Can you see the Goblin?

This is my group (not everyone).  I'm not sure what I was doing beneath all of them.

 I like the contrast of the different colors.

The green rock looks like it was doing a terrible job at hiding.

 On the way to the Goblins' Lair

 The Goblins' Lair!

 Our fearless leader made sure to help the ladies down.

 I think I was trying to help you understand how tall the mountain is... but without a person you really don't know, do you.

 More Goblin Valley

See below?  There are petroglyphs.  The first is to give you an indication of the size of the mountain.  The second is so you can see the picture.  

 This is Wolverton Mill.  There is a curse associated about this mill.  Feel free to ask me about it sometime.

 You know you wanted to see the inside of the mill.

 I don't remember the significance of the following two pictures, but I am positive that they are important.

Starting the trail to Hickman Bridge

 We made it!

It was a red pond.  I needed a picture...

 My group was looking at more petroglyphs at Capital Reef, but my camera wasn't good enough.  So I took pictures of the scenery instead.


The is a famous rock with "castle" somewhere in its title.

The Payson Temple

Wednesday morning at 8 am I went to the Payson Temple open house.  I took a few pictures and feel like putting them here.  Call me strange. 

 The following flower represents me because it is odd.

Grandma Horne's Funeral

Yesterday was my Grandma Horne's Funeral.  If my scanner were working, I would scan the program and post it here.  It's not, though, so I won't.  The program contains her favorite quote, so I will put that here.  It's by Joseph Smith, and he says, "Happiness is the object and design of our existence; and will be the end thereof, if we pursue the path that leads to it; and this path is.... Virtue, uprightness, faithfulness, holiness and keeping all the commandments of God."

And here, let me post some random pictures. 

 My brother got to be pallbearer.


If you couldn't tell from the pictures, it was raining... a lot!

After we went to the cemetery, we went back to the chapel for lunch.

2nd Cousins!

 Later that night, my dad got too read to my niece and nephew.
