Timpanogos Cave

We hiked to Timpanogos Cave today. 
We tried to do this on our anniversary last week, but the cave tours were already sold out. 
It started out a beautiful day--not too hot, not too cold. - Family, Timpanogos Cave

The hike is 1-1/2 miles up hill, over 1,100 feet in elevation. Some parts were quite steep. I ended up giving MK a piggyback during part of the hike. Then, we walked a mile through the caves. After that, we hiked back down the mountain while it rained and hailed on us. Quite the adventure. - Family, Timpanogos Cave

We had such a good time. The kids did SO good hiking up that steep mountain. We were all kinda beat by the time we got home. I think we are going to sleep well tonight. 

I want to do another hike on my birthday in a week. It isn't nearly as hard as this one. I figure if the kids can do today's hike, they can do just about anything.
