Paria Canyon

I am spending my spring break backpacking in the Paria Canyon in Arizona for my Outdoor Leadership class. My teacher pulled permits Dec. 1st! It's a once in a life time opportunity! I am so excited! I will take lots of pictures. It's suppose to me beautiful. Just a couple weeks left before we go!!!

Most amazing Jazz game!

Jazz Games will never be the same! Mary and Jorge invited me to a suite at the Jazz game. We arrived early and ate an amazing meal which included prime rib, cat fish, fresh fruit, salads, all I could drink Dr. pepper, etc. Then at half time we had a huge dessert bar with every cake and cookie imaginable! Oh man I don't think I can go to a normal game again. This was the best! Thanks for thinking of me guys! Also it was the game honoring Larry H. Millers passing. It was really cool to share that moment of silence with everyone as they lit up his empty seat next to his wife... it made me cry.

Capitol Reef Field Station!

Capitol Reef National Park Field Station! My program planning class just helped put on an event promoting this wonderful place! We held it at the UVU and gave away over 190 prizes my class had gathered, and held contests and ate good food. This field station has been in progress for 15 years! We finally have it and I can't wait to see it. It is all self sustaining. The parking lot if full of solar panels. There are classrooms and places to sleep and bathrooms. It's awesome and we are proud to promote it.

CRAZY Month!

This next month is going to be crazy! I have 3 trips planned and lots of school work ahead. I am so excited though... I will fill everyone in soon on whats going on and have good pictures of the trips. They should be so fun. I can't wait!

Jordan and I decided to try sledding out the other night. I don't remember the last time I laughed that hard. I started the night off with flying off a jump I didn't see and J continued to scream "are you okay?" from the top of the huge hill. It was good to get out and have some fun atfer working so much.
