My sister Tiffany is visiting from Georgia and the two of us (since no one else in the family wanted to who had time) hiked part of the Bonneville Shoreline Trail. I only walk 4 miles a day on the treadmill so I don't know what I was thinking hiking so much in one day! Most of the hike was cool and even though parts were very steep, other parts weren't bad at all. I actually wanted to keep going, but had to return home to cook dinner for the missionaries so we turned back and went down. I am so glad we turned back when we did. I was okay on the hike until part of the way down when I started to get a bad headache. Then almost immediately when we sat in the car, I started getting worse and worse. Tiffany even convinced me to pull over and let her drive because I was nauseous and my hands were numb and tingly. I thought I was okay during the hike, but they say animals know things we don't notice. Apparently that's true. A vulture was circling us (much closer than in this pic) and then brought it's friend over. Luckily, we were moving around a bit too much for them.
I guess I wasn’t ready for a 11 mile (plus a little more) hike! But I was still glad I went. It was pretty up there, fun to spend time with Tiffany, and I burned LOTS of calories.
