Temple Quarry & Lisa Falls

This week we were few in numbers, but still had a ton of fun. We went to the Temple Quarry in Little Cottonwood Canyon, and then just up the road to Lisa Falls. It was just Eric, Bonnie, Ella, and me. Well and Apollo Anton Ono. But he only biked past for a second. (And it might not have been him, but it sure looked like him.. hey he lives here, it's definitely a possibility.)

(no photo's of Mr. Ono, I couldn't get to my camera in time ;)

As soon as we arrived at the hike, we had someone telling us it was a great day to see mountain goats, and they had seen a lot of them. He then pointed us in the direction of where they had seen them, and I had to laugh. Maybe it was just my eyes, but these so called mountain goats could have been rocks for all I could tell. They were just so far away, I drew up a little diagram to show you where they are..

The Temple Quarry was really cool, it had great views, and we stumbled across interesting things along the way.

Then we headed up the road to Lisa Falls which was gorgeous. Ella dipped her toes in, but quickly realized it was freezing water and pulled them right out. Eric on the other hand was a sport and hopped in the water and sunk to his thighs.
The view from the top of the water fall was gorgeous. We were surrounded with crazy views all around us.
We had a ton of fun, and are ready for a new challenge next week. Happy Monday!

I think you did a great job capturing the greatness that was this day. I can't wait for the next hike each week.
