Provo Canyon

We continue to play tourist!
Yesterday we headed south from FOB Westfall to Provo for a walk around of the BYU campus, a drive past the MTC to see Zach's future home and to begin to try and get a 'feel' for what Zach's time at the MTC will be like. Looked similar to a community college campus, adjacent to BYU. It's right across the street from the Provo Temple. After a fun morning on campus, we headed back to the northeast for a drive up Provo canyon and to see Bridal Veil Falls.
Zach and Millie at the Falls.
It was a great little hike, but almost straight up! From the Falls we continued up and through the canyon, stopped at Sundance for a look around (the lifts were closed due to lightning) and then past the Deer Creek
The mountains here are awesome
Reservoir and through Heber City on our way to Park City. All the rides were closed due to a light rain that had fallen earlier, but we were able to view some of the freestyle skiers as they practiced their aerial jumps and flips before landing in a big swimming pool at the bottom of the ski jump.
A great day ended on a down note, however as BYU, Utah and Mizzou all three lost their football games yesterday.
Kind of looking forward to Sunday being our day of rest. Heading to the church genealogy library on Monday to see what new info we can find out about our ancestors!
Via con dios!
