Best Wife Ever!

How awesome would it be if your wife came to you and said, "Honey, I want to go on a backpacking trip.  Just the two of us.  Somewhere in the mountains.  Oh, and let's sleep in hammocks."  That would be SO awesome!  That's exactly what Christi said to me a couple of weeks ago.  So for the first time ever, we went camping with just the two of us.  We visited beautiful Fifth Water Springs in Diamond Fork canyon near Spanish Fork, Utah.  We hiked in as the sun was setting and enjoyed the beautiful evening light on the red rock cliffs and pine trees in the surrounding mountains.  We hiked in three miles, past some natural hot springs and two beautiful waterfalls.  We set up camp in the twilight and had our freeze dried camping meals next to a small fire.  It was so nice to get away with my sweetie!

We were able to set up our hammocks right next to each other (Christi was just a little afraid of the bogeyman).  We woke up and had a leisurely morning in camp.  On our way back, we stopped and soaked in the hot springs.  We were gone less than 20 hours, but it was a fantastic little getaway.  Thank you, Christi!  I love you:)

Off we go!

There were two nice waterfalls along the way.
Fun around the campfire:

LOVE waking up to this!

On end of our hammocks was hooked to the same tree.

The hot springs were fun, but sure did smell like sulfur!
