alpine loop & millcreek canyon

A day up in the mountains is always a good day.  Last weekend we went up American Fork canyon and drove along the Alpine loop.  It was so pretty seeing the fall colors.  One of the things that made it so pretty was the fog and clouds.  We felt like we were in a different state because it looked so different.
We were lucky to see a few red and orange leaves mixed in with the classic Utah yellow!  We hope to go over to Vermont, New Hampshire, and the rest of the states in the northeast to see the beautiful fall colors one day.  Especially the bright red and orange!
We just couldn't get enough of the mountains and the beautiful colors so we headed up Millcreek canyon with my parents and Lucy on Sunday.  We drove up to the top of the canyon which was so much fun.  We had never been to the top so it was a new adventure.  I want to go back and go on a hike!
I sure do love going on adventures with my family and Lucy.  We're trying to enjoy every last minute of fall before the freezing winter comes.  Hopefully we still have a while to go on lots of canyon adventures!

silver lake

This weekend we had a surprise adventure up the canyon!  I've wanted to go on a hike all summer long and Nik finally surprised me by going on a drive up the canyon and then a walk around silver lake.  It was so beautiful and such nice weather in the sun.
I'd have to say one of my favorite parts about the walk was seeing all the squirrels.  They were so fast and were everywhere in the trees.  It was so fun to watch them run all around you and back to their little gathering spot.  We couldn't get any pictures of them because they were too fast!
We're excited to go on more hikes to see more of the beautiful fall colors.  We're so grateful we live so close to such beautiful mountains!
