4MM - Yesterday was hike day (2.1)

The Four More Miles Hike Club ("4MM") has officially kicked off its second season.  For our inaugural hike of 2013, we climbed Grandeur Peak from Millcreek Canyon.  

The hike was really pretty, and the peak itself offers spectacular views of the Wasatch Mountains, the Salt Lake Valley, and down into both Parley's and Millcreek canyon.

This was Tenny's first time to climb an entire mountain, from bottom to summit, without ever needing a lift from his dad.  I was super proud of him.  He has looked up at Grandeur Peak a few times since returning home (we can see it from our house) and proudly proclaimed:  "I climbed that all by myself!"

Ye Stewart Boys at the top.

This is the view to the south as the trail reaches the ridge.  Grandeur Peak is on the far right.

We're only a couple weeks away from our June hike.  We would love to have you join us.  If you're not on the e-mail distribution list and would like to be added, just let us know.

Here's hoping there will always be four more miles!
