The trail begins in the desert, surrounding you with cacti of all types, takes you up a very steep and rocky incline into the mountain. Once you get over the peak, it is a free range of grassy plains, mountainous views, and springs and waterfalls. In the distance you can see snow and pine trees. We saw many different beautiful scenery on our hike, and just truly relished in the moment. Ryan and I have had some stressful months behind us, and even more stressful months to come; but we still can find that point in-between to enjoy it all. As our lives are growing, developing, and changin so very fast; it is SO easy to get caught pu in the whirlwinds and stress....but we are praying daily to remember that we need to enjoy the hike up the treacherous and difficult mountains ;)
Here are some of the pictures we took on our trek up:

Snow on a catcus? ...and they say we can't have a white christmas....
The white "dusting" on the mountains is snow :)
