First Camping Trip of the Summer

So a group of my friends and I decided last minute to go on a camping trip in Southern Utah.  The guy to girl ratio was 3 girls and 5 guys so that means each girl had a guy. :)Don't worry mom, I will be safe. :) The weather was perfect and we really had a great time.  As you can tell from the pictures, there was cactus and they were beautiful. There was other flowers that were just as pretty as the cactus. We went on a hike on Saturday and let me just say, it was one of the scariest things I have ever done. There was a part where we had to do some tunneling, and cross a ridge that had a drop off of 200 ft on one side and 1000 ft on the other side. When you are one that doesn't like heights, it is hard for you to enjoy it.  Once I got to the other side of the ridge I was okay and able to take pictures. The view was amazing and I really had a great time.  At the beginning of the hike, we went to a spot that had some water.  Knowing myself I knew something would happen to me. I was trying to get to the other side and I didn't reach the guys hand fast enough and slipped into the pond.  The water was brown and came up to the top of my stomach. So for the rest of the hike I was in wet jeans but I still made the hike enjoyable. I have learned that I love camping and hiking. Camping makes me grateful for nature and the beautiful world God has given to me.
