Mt Olympus



With only a few weeks before school starts, me and Casey made a decision to do something really cool every weekend. Last week that was hiking Mt Olympus. He really freaked me out before, and had me convinced I couldn't do it, or it would be the hardest thing I had ever done. I had been sick for like a month, and my body still wasn't back 100%. But I decided to do it. We left around 4 in the morning so we could make it up for sunrise.





Everyone told me it was like, "being on a StairMaster for 2 hours." Well, It was incredibly hard. But man oh man was it worth it. Some people hike for fitness, some hike to see something. I hike to see something, and what I saw was worth every painful, exhausted step.





This summer I really learned to appreciate the beauty of Utah summers. Instead simply wanting to get outside and do something, I've found myself craving Utah. I've always had a bit of a bad taste in my mouth for Utah because of how miserable the winters can get, but I think I've finally learned to love it here. I mean look at it! It's incredible! If you're in Utah, you have to do this.
