"You will have significant experiences. I hope that you will write them down and keep record of them, that you will read them from time to time and refresh your memory of those meaningful and significant things. Some may be funny. Some may be significant only to you. Some of them may be sacred and quietly beautiful. Some may build one upon another until they represent a lifetime of special experiences." — Gordon B. Hinckley

A Day of Hiking

We had a great first day when my was sister here. We headed up to Glenwood Springs for lunch, drove through the canyon to see how magnificent it is. We walked around at the rest stop, watching the river and seeing all the damage from the flooding. The weather couldn't have been any better, it was beautiful. We headed back to Glenwood Springs to hike Potter's Field to see Doc. Holiday's grave. I love this hike, I love the view, the scenery, the peace and the history this hike represents. We walked around seeing all the dates, the different types of headstones, all the flowers, and answered many questions from the girls. One the way down it began to sprinkle, then the raindrops got bigger and we got wetter! We had so much fun. As we were coming down the hill, Jolene was holding my hand laughing and said, "Mom, we are making a memory!! " I love that girl. We had such a wonderful day all of us together, making a memory!
