As part of Crystal's continuing celebration of her dad's birthday, yesterday she took us to Timpanogas cave! It has been about a decade since we've been there!
The path is occasionally shady, and paved the entire mile and a half up the mountain. But it is steep! You never get a break from walking straight uphill!
At the 1/4 or the way mark, we stopped to comment that we were doing better than we thought we would do!
When we reached the cave entrance in 43 minutes we thought, "We're in better shape than we were 10 years ago!" They allow you an hour and a half to get to the top before your tour time. Unfortunately, that meant we had to wait a while before we got into the cave!
We enjoyed the guided tour and the cool temperature in the cave!
There was a good deal of crouching involved, but happily we avoided any painful encounters with low hanging cave rocks!
We were able to relax and enjoy the views on the way down the mountain!
In the evening Crystal was a special guest at the Alpine Slow Jam. We enjoyed hearing her play a few tunes for us on her mountain dulcimer. We also enjoyed having her play the viola with us. We are seriously lacking a solo instrument in the group!
