Yesterday was my husband’s birthday. We had planned an epic day of hiking The Subway in Zion National Park with friends. As luck would have it, some of the heaviest rain all year began to pour through the desert region and slam us with water. Here is Mike at the back country office
The Subway is both hiking and canyoneering, so when flash flooding hits you do not want to be in a canyon! There was tons of water coming down the huge sandstone walls and flooding all over. We opted instead for a beautiful high-ground back country hike on the east side:
Too bad for Mike that the entire birthday celebration was the all-day hike, even his birthday gift was this truly beautiful photograph of the Subway. Which just kind of rubbed it in, like, oh look how pretty of a hike you DIDN’T get to go on for your birthday! In the end, all was well…
Happy Birthday babe!
