Battle Creek Falls

As Spring begins to show its colors, my outdoor activities continue to increase. Last Thursday we had the day off of school, so we decided to celebrate by driving up to Pleasant Grove and returned to Battle Creek. This was my third time there. Garrett and I got a pretty good group together, consisting of 3 boys and 6 girls.

We reached the falls quickly enough, but we chose to continue hiking a little farther. We hiked about a half mile past the falls and enjoyed the new experience. Like so many outdoor adventures that I go on, I find myself reflecting on the beauty and majesty of what I find. I enjoyed this hike very much. It was a wonderful moment to break away from the stresses of life and look upon the wondrous creations of God.

I've been adding to my rock collection from my major hikes in Utah. I have now collected 4 in total. One from the top of Angel's Landing, one from the peak of Mount Timpanogos, one from Bridal Veil Falls, and today one from Battle Creek Falls. I hope to continue my collection as I explore the many adventures Utah has to offer.

On a side note, school is over in 5 days. I have 4 finals left and then summer begins.

You and I have to climb Table Rock in Grand Teton National Park this summer. It is a challenging climb, but it is so beautiful. It is best to do the climb sometime late in the summer. Let me know what your work schedule will be like and we will go.
