Yesterday our five oldest kids went to youth conference for the weekend. They had to be at the church by 5 am. Since I was getting up with them anyway, I thought it would be a great day for an early morning hike. Xander wanted to come along again, so I had a buddy for my trip:). We hiked to the top of Butterfield Peaks, just to the west of Herriman. Beautiful views all along the 4.5 mile round trip. We climbed 1600 feet in elevation. I love the smells and sounds and sights when I'm able to get into the mountains. We are lucky to live so close to so many beautiful places!
