Pretty sure last night’s hike was one of my last of the season. And it was perfect. Sagebrush and scrub oak.
Scrub oak is ugly and bare until June, but the fall colors make up for the wait.

Trying on some old music. “Try Whistling This,” Neil Finn. So good.

you say you’re tired, 
liquid as water, 
but you’ll succumb now 
as I stroke your back.
I’m the best that you know.

DAMN.
Found a pic of my climbing guide, Tyson, taken by Salt Lake Tribune photographer Chris Detrick! This is Tyson rappelling down at the end of our climb. I’m already on the ground and waiting. Look at that gorgeous view!
That ledge on the left was our second stop on the climb. Man, that was wide and comforting. But then I had to go around that corner and traverse the rock face up to the the top of the rope. I did not like leaving that safe ledge and stepping onto a sheer wall! Nope. But I did it. Here’s a pic of me at the top on my way down!
