Ensign Peak

Two Saturdays ago Rachel and I hiked Ensign peak together. There were so many wild flowers all over the mountain, and all the trees had new leaves. It was gorgeous!

Their was a stake group also hiking which stunk because we were hoping to get the hike to ourselves. Oh well, you have to share the outdoors I suppose. It took us about 30 minutes to get the top. It's a good hike, just the right amount of steepness and the right length. Good workout if you walk at a fast pace like we did. Here are the pictures. Enjoy!
