The Saturday after Thanksgiving, Blake and I joined my parents in a search for the perfect Christmas tree for their house. We were pretty excited to finally get to go. My dad and brother, Seth, have been in charge of this for the few past years, so we were happy to be involved. Manti Canyon is the prettiest canyon in all the lands, but I may be slightly biased.
We started school this week and let me tell you, I was not ready to go back! Finals week was the week before Christmas and somehow I lucked out and had the majority of my finals the last week of class. As a result, I basically ended up with a month-long break. Hallelujah! Once Blake finished his finals, we took a weekend trip to Bryce Canyon. We found a good deal on Groupon for Ruby’s Inn, so we stayed for a couple of days. We went to Bryce earlier this year, but unfortunately we didn’t get to do much hiking. This time we made sure we hiked both the Queens Garden and Navajo Loop trails, highlights of Bryce. It was incredible.
