i spend most of this past saturday out at the canyon again. you don’t waste 80 degree weather in february in west texas. you get out there and enjoy it!
so i suggested my cousin, her daughter, and i take a long hike to the Lighthouse, a beautiful geological formation in the canyon. the hike is about 6 miles roundtrip. however, we started in the wrong place, only about a quarter of the mile down the road, because this social studies teacher apparently can’t read a map! so we ended up doing about 9 miles altogether. but we had fun. we walked, hiked, and climbed for nearly four hours straight. needless to say, we were exhausted by the end, but we had a blast and still got in a great workout.
