I'm very lucky to have a wife who likes the mountains as much as I do. With the holidays and end of year craziness over, we are finally able to celebrate our anniversary. We didn't get a fancy hotel or travel to some exotic place. Instead, we begged our family members to watch our kids for a couple of days so we could spend some time together. Skiing, movies, food...whatever we want.
Day 1- we hiked up Flagstaff (near Alta). We were treated to 10" of light dry snow. Breaking trail was brutal but we had the entire mountain to ourselves. Seriously. Not another soul in site. No other tracks. Very rare for a power day in Utah.
Rachelle kept a strong pace the entire way. I've said this before, she can climb like the boys.
After skiing, we hit the porcupine for some food. So good.
