Silver Lake

Today my good friend Allyson invited me on a hike with some of her friends. The hike was up American Fork Canyon to Silver Lake. It was a beautiful day and there were lots of people up the canyon enjoying the good weather on the holiday.

I'm not much of a hiker... but I was excited because this was a new hike for me. I brought my nice camera along to get some good pictures. I'm so glad I did because it was absolutely beautiful up there. Spring is a beautiful time of year here.

One of Allyson's friends and her cute baby.... ready to hike!

It took up most of the afternoon. It was a long uphill hike. Round trip it was more than 4 miles. It sure felt good to get to the top. I had no idea we would be running into snow. We ran into a couple of guys that got to the top after we did and then jumped in the lake. It had to be freezing. They screamed when they got in... so I can only imagine. One of them said it was Memorial Day tradition to do that. I told him that was a terrible tradition and he said... I know right? The hike is already hard, but to know you had to jump into freezing water at the top. Yikes. They were funny.

At the top we took a break, had some snacks and took in the beautiful scenery and then headed back down.

Our dirty shoes after our long hike in the dirt/mud/slushy snow.

Good times. Thanks Allyson for inviting me a long. It was beautiful. Hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day.
