Last weekend we decided to go on a getaway. Now personally I don't like to travel far especially if it's only for a couple of days. I'd rather spend the time away not getting away. Well Jeff came up with the plan and kind of surprised me right before. It is someplace we have never been, on a getaway that is.
We went out to the local recommended Mexican restaurant that lived up to it's reputation. It was packed and delicious. Then we relaxed in our new home.
The next day we got up late and went to the Star Valley Temple. It was small and lovely. They only had three sessions that day. We had to schedule and come 1/2 hour early to get in line for a dressing stall. I loved it and it was so great being together.
Our next stop was for lunch at a local hamburger joint that was full of a traveling football team and their coaches. I felt a little outnumbered being the only girl customer.
We walked up to Intermittent or Periodic Springs. It was kind of cold, but hiking helped a lot. So this spring will periodically stop every 18 minutes. Then it starts up and gushes, not with a trickle. It was really cool, but the best part was hiking with Jeff and being in the mountains. Here is when it is starting to slow down on our walk up.
Here are our rock sculptures we created waiting for the spring to start.
Now it's really going!
It was really hard to leave the mountains, so we found another spot by the river and sat and talked.
That night we ate at another local restaurant that was filled with ambience and classy seasonal decor. Every single things served their was gourmet. It was delectable and I want to go back.
