The second photo is of the valley. It looks a little hazy. I have seen it much worse.
I used Snapseed to edit this photo with the help of my granddaughter, Lexi. We had a great time.
We did have one of those unforgettable moments while we were up on the mountain. Tim, our son, pulled off the road (well, trail) so we could take a few photographs. He put our youngest granddaughter on his lap for a while. We were all getting a little cold, so he decide to turn on the old Ford.
You know that sounds: the car bearly turns over the engine, then nothing? Well, that was what we heard. What we didn’t know was that our granddaughter turned on the headlights while enjoying his company. We were 45 minutes up the mountain, a very poor signal on our phones, and it was getting dark. It sounds like something out of the movies, right?
My wife had the best signal, so she text back to family. We managed to find someone that could drive up and give us a jumpstart. We asked everyone that stopped by about jumper cables, by no one could help. With help on the way, we just had to wait. A couple attempts to start it, but nothing.
After about 30 minutes, Tim tried it again. Much to our surprise, the old Ford started. We called off the Calvary and headed home. Talk about crazy.
The trip was worth it. We took some great photos. I walked in the Great Strides for Cystic Fibrosis event, we were in Salt Lake for a birthday party for two of our grandchildren. We had a great visit.
