The hike to Donut Falls is really just a very simple walk... until the very end, where you must climb a rock wall to get up to the falls. This would have beem easy with just the 2 of us, but bringing Makea along was quite a feat! Jon carried her in the front pack while I nervously climbed behind them. Fortunately he is an avid climber and made it up easily. I, on the otherhand, barely kept my nerces intact. This photo does not accurately portray how high up we were! But, the falls and view from the top were beautiful and, in hindsight, well worth the effort!
This past August we went camping at the Spruces campground, up Emigration Canyon (UT). We had SO much fun, just relaxing, spending time with family and enjoying nature. While there, we took a hike to Donut Falls (behind us in the photo.) We had a great time!
This is the first picture of the three of us, taken just a couple of hours after Makea's birth on January 20th, 2005 at the University of Utah Hospital. You can see the fatigue in our faces, but the delight in our eyes is unmistakable! :)
