Up in the Foothills

Left too late to take a decent walk, but ended up doing 4.5 miles with a respectable aerobic workout, huffing up into the foothills. On the way up I passed a street designation in the concrete (common up in the Avenues of Salt Lake) that someone had decided to decorate with Pyracantha berries - I thought it was charming:



My son called me when I was overlooking the valley, and asked if I wanted to go do dinner and a movie, so I snapped a few quick pix:


The Great Salt Lake from the northern foothills


The Salt Lake City Center


Foothills with Sunflowers

It was kind of a hazy day so the shots aren't the best, plus all I had with me was my phone-cam, but they give a flavor of what I saw this afternoon.

My some drove up into the avenues to pick me up, and we went to dinner at a Thai restaurant - I gave this one a "B-" - and then went and saw "9", which I had seen last week, but enjoyed it again because he hadn't seen it. His assessment was similar to mine - he liked the effects, but came away feeling unsatisfied with the story as a whole. However, we saw some previews for some awesome-looking films that are on the must-see list.

I hope that you're taking a heart monitor on these hikes.

If only Avatar and The Last Airbender weren't coming out in the same year or two. You just know people will get confused.

OK I am jealous. You go on regular hike sin some awesome views. Being a Crohny I have to know where the restrooms are. Or take along the proper equipment. Extra cloths, T-paper, shovel. That is not inductive to a impromptu long walk. Around here not much scenery. We have the lake not many public access.

Even without Crohn's I still have to be prepared for "no trace" hiking in the back country, with some of the same equipment. (Sorry you've got that affliction, BTW).

>You go on regular hike sin some awesome views.

I know it's a typo, but I think I'm going to start using that to describe what I do...
