These guys are crazy but it did look like fun.

I've been up that canyon many times so this clip brings back a lot of fond memories for me. They look like they were having a lot of fun. I hope their leg muscles weren't too sore after snow shoeing. Thanks for sharing!

American Fork Canyon? Where is that in relation to Provo?

Eileen said...

I've always wanted to try snow-shoeing! It does look like a lot of work, but also a lot of fun!
Great video! I enjoyed this!
All the best,
Eileen

American Fork Canyon is north of Provo...about a 20 minute drive. Lots of people use that canyon. I had a high school girlfriend whose family had a cabin there, plus that is the canyon where Timpanogas Cave is which is a fun hike and adventure. Have they been there yet? It's closed for the winter but that's a fun activity. They have guided tours there. Daryl and I took our young women class there for one activity.

Please note that the dead foliage that is in the video at the top of the mountain is actually the tops of trees. Crazy, huh?

McKenna and McKay are the best.

Is it winter where they are?

They make it look easy AND they look good doing it! Love, Dad and Susan

we love snowshoeing! But tell them two things:
1. next time take ski poles, it makes it so much easier.
2. avalanche danger is VERY HIGH right now, so be sure to check reports before going out to back country.
It is alot of fun and a really good exercise too!

Jill said...

I'm so glad you mentioned that Rebecca. I was wondering the same thing, about avalanche dangers, but being I know next to nothing about snow, I thought I should keep my fears to myself. I also worry about them going to desolate places...not sure if that was, but it looked so in the pictures.

Jill said...

Also, they should always tell someone where they are going in case they don't come back.

Sue said...

They are too cute! Very adventurous, too. (And I agree, they should tell someone where they are, EVERY time!)

=)

PS. I guess we grandmas think alike. I was worried about avalanches, too.

Rebecca said...

i think American Fork Canyon is quite safe. It is close to Alpine, and I don't think too isolated. My brother in law snowshoes there and he is quite safety minded.

Jill said...

Thank you Rebecca. I'll sleep better tonight.

Rebecca said...

Yes that is a good thing to tell someone. John brings his GPS and tells me the coordinates for where they will be when he goes. So I know where to send "search parties"...Sheesh and they wonder why we have grey hair????

I think McKay must have A LOT of Heasley and not a lot of Rozier in him (well except for that strong math gene) I can't imagine a Rozier thinking that snow and mountains and hiking add up to fun - except maybe with a pretty girl.

Yes, Richard...they say it does get pretty cold around there. You ought to visit sometime.
