I am Back and what FUN

I returned home late last night from Founder Circle!  So much fun this year.  This was the 2nd time I have earned this trip.  I love the ladies I am getting to know better and I have so many new friendships too!

Here are a Few of my favorite shots from the first  day:  My new friends and my team- The Silver Spoons. what a great dinner we had together.  Lots of Laughs!

On Thursday we went on a hike in the Narrows of Zion National Park. (last year I went rock repelling)  There was quite a bit of rain so the water in the narrows was really high.  So we split the hike into a wet part and a dry part.  

Here we are getting ready

our neoprene water socks and water shoes.  

Kathy, Jan and I .  These women are such fabulous friends.  

off in to the 50 degree water.  As a result of the rain, the water was running very high, just below the point where we could not hike in it.  the water at some points was chest high!!  YES  I did go in that deep.  I had a brand new outfit for this.  All quick dry/water wicking hiking clothes.  right down to my “unders”

Now on to the dry part.   here we go right up the rocks.  there was a small trail, but not much. 

through the cave, really cool the temperature difference in the rock.  

When we got to the top, a most SPECTACULAR view and a picnic lunch provided by our 2 guides.

Jan took this shot of me.  its great how it shows the AMAZING beauty of the rock landscape. (I look pretty good too)

Kathy and I at the look out.  One steep drop for sure!

the Zion park hike was AMAZING.  I really love doing these outdoor adventures.  I’m sure working hard to earn this trip next year.  See you tomorrow for more pics from Founders circle!

    What a beautiful hike. I'm not sure that I would want to hike in that kind of water but boy is that view worth it! So glad that you had some fun.
