Science Expedition!!





We drove up farmington canyon for a little science expedition. Scott was told that the mountain was actually a volcano. We have had discussions whether it was true or not. My friend Julie said she'd take us up to the top to see what kind of rocks we could find. I was totally freaked out. I hate narrow windy roads, especially when there are these massive cliffs. I must say I did pretty good and didn't EEK (as Julie would say)to much. Are you kidding me, I was screaming inside. I didn't want Nicholas to see me scared so I kept quiet. The pictures I took of the cliffs do not do it justice. I was not going closer to get a better picture. When we got to the top it was like going to the clouds, all you could see were massive clouds. The view from the top was so beautiful and it was cold. So refreshing after these hot days. Scott found a bunch of rocks he brought home with him, to study and see what kind they are. On the way up we saw 2 baby deer. They were so cute. The drive was fun. We were serenaded the whole time by Nicholas, who I must say was having the time of his life. He loves to be in a car and ride in them. We took the back road that takes you to the bountiful mountains and came home through Bountiful. The Bountiful side was almost as scary as farmington, especially Dead Mans Curve. There are a lot of cars at the bottom of the cliff where people have fallen of. We had a lot of fun on our little adventure, but I am glad to be safe and sound on the ground.

I love Farmington Canyon!!!! It is so beautiful! JW. Just took Felicity on a 4 wheeler ride up there (way way up there by the golf balls) and found three lakes. I hope all of us will go up there soon.

So you never said... Is it a Volocano?
