We attempted some cross country skiing in icy and warm conditions- I only made it about 45min before calling it quits. Here's to hoping for more Utah snow come January.
Along with the warm weather came an amazing hike towards Mt. Olympus. It's a 7 mile round trip hike and climbs 4000 feet in elevation on the way up! We didn't quite make it to the top, but it's definitely on the bucket list.
Thanksgiving dinner was a success! I made the bacon-wrapped pork loin, ricotta and butternut squash toasts, and triple chocolate pumpkin pie. It feels good to know when we have kids, I won't poison them ;-)
Finally, I got in a couple great runs on the Bonneville shoreline trail in mid-50 degree weather! On my Thanksgiving day run, there were TONS of people out hiking as a family, running with their dogs, and mountain biking with friends. It was awesome seeing so many people using their day off work to be active.
Overall, another fantastic Utah trip! It will feel good to finally be able to start establishing some roots in the city after visiting so many times. Now I have to pull my **** together and get through the last 2 weeks of school, finals, and packing. I smell a pity party....
