Honeymoon Part 2...The Hike

October 21, 2008

Yes, you read that title correctly....on our honeymoon Jon and I went on a hike! We did not originally plan it, but our hot air balloon ride was cancelled due to 40 mph winds....needless to say I was disappointed. So we went on a hike instead...some compromise huh? It was fun though....most of it at least.

My husband getting ready to set out.

It was a beautiful day.

Showing off my photography skills.

A big bridge that was cool I guess.

The husband again!

The ginormous tarantula that was on the trail. Jon spotted it and nearly fell off the cliff....totally freaked me out! It was as big as his hand....neither of us had ever seen a spider that big that wasn't in a cage! Needless to say we were scared....and after we passed him we just had to go back and take a picture to document it!

There were a lot of cactus (cacti?) on the trail. I like to call this part of the hike "Julie is cranky because there is too much desert and not enough trees".

Ah, much better. We finally reached the creek and the pretty trees!

I like to call this part "attempting to cross the creek on tiny tree branches".

He made it half way!

It was really beautiful and peaceful.

I survived the hike! It was like 2.5 miles...go me.

  1. Beautiful views. So, should we expect to see Julie & Jon on a camping trip soon?

  2. Sad to hear that you didn't get to go on a hot air balloon, but very glad that we packed in case of a hike. Pictures are great. Looks like a great honeymoon. Husband Jon...so weird...so cute.
