{Everyday Life} July 2015

Heinz and I started the month off with our annual snow cones. Unfortunately it was so hot out that mine melted within minutes.
Egg, chicken bake thingy with onion, broccoli, cheese, avocado, & hot sauce.

My staple breakfast before long runs. Protein pancakes with peanut butter and sugar-free syrup. So good.

Frisbee!

Lots of Salmon for dinner this month.

My pre-4th of July mountain run in Alta and Brighton.

Heinz's early morning sunrise hike on the top of Sugar Loaf Peak.

Taco Salad 

Mini carrot cake cupcakes. Crazy good!

Books I'm currently into.

Salmon with a kiwi-mango salsa.

I did another trail race in East Canyon. I ended up getting 2nd in my age group. It was a small race.

Dinner at Cafe Trio with a couple girlfriends.
My first souffle.

A gorgeous hike up to Mt. Aire

Brunch 

Stroll to Bloods Lake

Hike to White Pine Lake

Family fun at Bear Lake

Morning power - spinach, blueberries & strawberries.

Hanging out on top of Hidden Peak after a great butt kicking run/hike (rike).

Last but no least, the sunrise on top of the American Fork (West) Twin Peak.

The end of July already, that's crazy! This month has been filled with fun moments at every corner. From getting together with family, to friends in town, to good food and plenty of mountain time, July has been nothing short of superb.

Happy Trekkin'!

{Walking Switzerland} Wengen to Lauterbrunnen


May 21st, 2015:

After our previous day of train traveling to Lucern and Zurich, Heinz and I were in great need of some physical activity. While the weather stayed consistently stormy, we made our way up to Wengen, a very small village on the mountainside above Lauterbrunnen. We wandered around the little ski town and then made our way back to Lauterbrunnen on foot. My favorite part about this day was the goats and the waterfalls we saw from afar. 

Looking down into the town of Lauterbrunnen.

Back in Lauterbrunnen.

Happy Trekkin'!
