A few weeks back some of my family and I headed up American Fork canyon around midnight and proceeded to hike to to summit of Mtn. Timpanogos. The 8.9 (one way) hike took about 5 hours to get to the summit. There is really nothing like hiking in the dark with a headlamp and just gazing around. It is a great time to think and reflect upon life and just enjoy yourself. We reached the summit and it was freezing. I was wearing 3 shirts, a pullover, softshell jacket, and a hardshell jacket. There was nothing to do but just be cold. So we decided to make the last 30 minute trek to the actual summit and made it with just 10 minutes left before the sun came out. Speechless…. It was amazing. I think everyone needs to experience life at 12,000 feet. So here is my picture of the sunrise!
