Goodbye, Summer

To welcome in the first official day of fall, Brian and I went on a Saturday hike. We drove up our beloved Logan Canyon and wandered along the Crimson Trail. The mountains were all lit up with fiery oranges, reds, and glowing yellows. It was one of those moments when I was in complete awe of the beauty surrounding me. I kept climbing up the trail and gasping out of amazement at all the incredible views (and perhaps gasping for air too).

This was our first time taking on the Crimson Trail. I have to admit, it was actually more difficult than I would have guessed. Still very doable. But I guess I thought it would be a walk in the park. It wasn't. There were some steep parts. On the way down, I actually slipped and fell on my butt twice. It was quite graceful, if I do say so myself. There were plenty of sharp drop offs too. Brian and I made a game out of it by looking over all the drop offs and deciding if a person would die from the fall or just become a vegetable. We play pretty morbid games apparently. We stopped and ate lunch on the perfect ledge of rock, one we both agreed would be a fall that would kill a person. No worries, we sat far off from the edge to eat our sandwiches and the view was killer (no pun intended).

It was a beautiful hike. The perfect first day of fall, if I do say so myself. Then we went ahead and made the perfect night out of it by going to the new movie House at the End of the Street. We are big scary movie fans. Especially in the fall and especially with Halloween approaching. I'd highly recommend this one. It has quite the perfect twist. The first half, I was sort of feeling disappointed. The last half just took me by complete surprise. I already want to go see it again, which is a big deal since I have a hard time rewatching movies.

And since I do have a hard time rewatching movies, I would love any Halloween/scary movie suggestions from you. I need to start making my movie list for October, since September is just running away from us. So, scary movie fans, what's your favorite spooky flick?


  1. Crimson trail is my FAVORITE! Yay for autumn!

  2. I LOVE the woman in black and I think D. Radcliffe did a really good job at not being Harry Potter.
