A Little Hike - to the Cave


While my family was in town, one of our activities was to hike to the Timpanogos Caves.  Let me tell you - this is no easy hike too. 


You can get a better idea from this photo the starting and ending place.  So we're talking hiking up a big ole mountain. 


We just took lots of breaks along the way and the cousins cheered each other on.  But as you can see the trail is nicely paved - it's just steeeeep.


 There were also little signs along the way to keep us motivated.


We hiked at a slow and steady pace, until we made it to the top.


The entrance to the cave looked pretty amazing.


There are actually three caves but have all been connected - all discovered separately too.  It was very interesting and so cool to see the formations in the caves.


Luckily we decided to leave behind our 2-year old.  The trail would have been far too difficult for him and there was no way I could have carried him.  Also, with no guard rail - we might have lost him over the edge.  But this guy was a trooper and made it up and back like it was a walk in the park.


In the end it was well worth the climb - although coming down might have been even worse. My legs were just spaghetti when we got to the bottom. What a beautiful sight though - if you live in Utah and haven't been to the caves you should definitely consider this fun adventure.

  1. I have wanted to do this for years, but as my weight only increases instead of decreasing I'll have to wait to go. I'm glad you had a great time. The pics are great. Thanks for sharing with us.
