It was my son’s 12th birthday yesterday. I took the day off of work to hang out with him since he was having a sleep-over at his mom’s and leaving for Cancun on Saturday morning, the little jerk. He is so excited. He’s been infatuated with Mexico since he was 3. I have no idea why. He was very excited when Mexico beat France 2 – 0.
For his birthday the two of us hiked up Wire Peak and came down Red Butte. It took us 1:07:00 to the top, which is only a few minutes slower than my normal times when I’m running the first part and pushing through the hike. Weird. We saw a huge snake on the way up. It was not happy that I touched him. ha. We came down by way of Red Butte peak and hung out in the ‘living room’ for a while. Then we ran the last few miles back to the car. Our total time was very fast considering I didn’t stop the clock while chilling in the ‘living room’ for more than 5 minutes. That kid has some legs on him. He is a great hiker.
After that we went and picked up my wife from the university and went to Red Robin to celebrate. Here are some photos from the hike.
