Sierra's HIKING View.

I've decided that I'm going to try to correlate all of my blog titles with my blog name, Sierra's View. It's cheeky and cute and exactly what a blogger would do. You know what I mean? 

Last Friday, I had a ton of energy. I honestly have no idea where it came from or what sparked it, but I had this intense desire to go hike and push myself. Many of you know (and are sick of hearing me talk about it!) that I live in a beautiful place in Utah. I live in a little "cove" hidden inside these mountains. It's the most fantastic place ever. Literally a two minute drive and I'm right near a gorgeous hike. A hard, gorgeous hike, mind you (or maybe I'm just reeeeeally out of shape. Probably both!) I grabbed my pup, and we headed up the mountains. 
It was a perfect Friday afternoon after a long week of parent teacher conferences and play rehearsal (come see me as Mrs. Cratchit in a Christmas Carol in December!) and I needed to be outside in nature. Seriously being outside makes me feel so free and at peace; a sanctuary. I especially love the warm days in Fall--where the coldness hasn't quite hit and you simply feel the brisk warmth and enjoy the GORGEOUS fall colors. Seriously, is there anything more wonderful than all of the colors of fall? I wish I would have taken my nice camera, but I still got these beautiful photos up Dry Creek Trail in Alpine, Utah. Not too shabby for phone pics, if I do say so myself!













I also had to include this hilarious photo. T's family did a hilarious (and actually really cute!) photo shoot in these overalls. Oh man, I can't wait to show you all of them. We've gone country, y'all. :) 



Those of you who live in Utah, what are some of your favorite hikes? I want to know some more awesome hikes in this state! 
Do you like to be outside in nature?
What are some of your "places of peace?" 




Also…some friends and I are giving away a CANON REBEL T31! Seriously, one of the most amazing giveaways I have ever been involved in. You will not want to miss out on those.
