Tyler scouted out our path and we started up the mountain! It was really pleasant because the trails are nicely paved and there are little historical facts along the way.
As we got higher, we had an amazing view of the Snake River.
We came upon a beautiful little stream that is warm year-round (according to the afore mentioned historical factoid). We dipped our hands in it, and it really was a good temperature!
When the trails ended, we decided to be adventurous and climb up to the top of the mountain on our own.
We were, of course, victorious in our efforts! It was pretty cool being up on top of the mountain (albeit a very small mountain), we were above everything around us, and we felt like we were the only two people on earth, which thought made us very lovey-dovey.
After enjoying ourselves for a while, we started back down….it turns out it is much easier to go UP a very steep mountain than it is to go back DOWN it! I thought we were going to die! Well, that may be an exaggeration, but it was pretty scary! Eventually we made it back to the trails, and we drove off into the sunset.
