2014 was an amazing year! Though we put away the camera this year and tried to live in the moment there are lot’s of adventures and memories that we will have forever. The pictures we do have are of joy and life which is all we can ask for.
We decided a nice hike in the gorge would be the best way to spend a weekend so Brent and I packed up our gear and headed east.

The total hike is about 11 miles, with overall elevation gain of 2770…

So this time, Brent and I decided to make the hike up the Peak and check out the obsidian flows.
