The top pic is of us going into the "Slot" ...
The second pic is of me inside of the "Slot" ...
The third pic is after we climbed up the mountain and looked down into the gap that is called the "slot" ...
The last pic is of our group on top of "Wedding Mountain" ... what you don't see is that right behind that back line is a straight down drop a few hundred feet! It was really scarey standing on top of that thing! We had to be extra cautious!
Well, It's Friday and that means the week's almost over! The sad part is that I'll be losing my roommate on Sunday. The good part is that I only have one more week here ... I'm REALLY MISSING my hubby and my pups! So, 9 more days honey!
Our day started off by going on a hike up to "Slots". I've been waiting this hike as it only happens every other week and I didn't do this one my first week here. So, I went even though it was cold with the possibility of rain. It did hail on us, but it was like baby pea size. It's called Slots because of the small spaces you can go through that looks as if it is a giant sized slot machine and you could put a giant size quarter in it. We went through some of the "slots" and it was really cool. There was a lot of old "graffiti" on the stone. They say that the slots were formed by an earthquake that separated the rock. It was really cool, but hard climbing today. My knees are shot at this point. But, I did it and did enjoy it at the time, but paying for it tonight.
I had a great day in the gym too. A great Cardio Intervals class, a great Circuit class, and two awesome Cardio Disco Jam classes with John! I had a good conversation with Eric about the Biggest Loser stuff too. Michele, I told Eric to tell you that my husband and my roomie and her husband are already reserved for the first week in January 2011. We're going to Vegas for New Year's and then over to FR for a start to our new year. I hope you and Eric can come with us all. I look forward to meeting you sometime! :)
I really worked very hard today and don't have much more to say other than we have The Stop Sign Hike to look forward to in the morning and I'm bound and determined that roomie and I are making it to the top tomorrow! We've only been to the top the first week, and thereafter, we've only been going to mini Stop Sign and back down. So, tomorrow will be a hard hike as we plan to do the 4.5 miles up, ride the van back down to the mini stop sign, walk down the 3.2 miles from the mini stop sign, and then the 4 miles back to the FR resort! So, a total of 11.7 miles is in store for Sandy and I tomorrow morning! I'll report back to ya tomorrow night! :) Nighty Night!
