Hale Theater...Sundance...Timp Caves

I have decided to make the most out of my first and last summer in Utah! I have to take advantage of all of the summer activities/outdoorsy things to do while here! For example...and there will be more pictures on the way...

I went to Hale Theater with Tia and Layne to see Treasure Island, which I thoroughly enjoyed and was impressed with the Utah for once! :) That was a really fun treat!

Then...the next morning I decided to go for a ride. I rode from my house to Sundance. It was a pretty good Polar says I climbed about 1500 feet to the base of the Sundance Resort. IT was a gorgeous climb with lots of bikers on the road. I even met a nice guy passing through out for a ride and needed help back to his car.

We then went to the Timpanogas caves up the American Fork side. IT was a 1.5 mile hike with an 1100 foot ascent I believe...many switch backs but definetly worth it! I will be posting pics of it when I get them from those I went with.
And yes, Utah is not that bad, I am realizing, being here in the summer. There are a lot of amazing cool things to see in the great outdoors...I LOVE IT! We are making to do lists for the summer of all the hot spots in Utah that are must if you have any ideas, let me know!
