Utah mountain memories

Highlights from a recent getaway, in no particular order:

  • Startling some young deer and two sandhill cranes as we pedaled along a gravelly trail.
  • Being followed in the forest by a wild mink.
  • Staying upright in the river on my first fly-fishing wade.
  • The sound of a meteor exploding somewhere in the upper atmosphere.
  • Hiking mountain trails with Mrs. Smith and our 5-year-old granddaughter.

Carry on, my friends.
