Getting away from it all…

I took the day off today to take care of the house and just relax a bit.

So once I had the house cleaned up I decided to gas up the car and head for the hills… See, I got a new camera a while back in the hopes that it would provoke me into getting out of the house a bit more often.

Well, once I'd purchased $40 worth of gas and a bottle of water, I went westward up Deer Creek Canyon.

I spent about 5 hours just sitting on a rock and reading a book. It sprinkled a little bit on the way up, but remained dry while I was there. It was also serious jacket weather up there as the outside temperature, according to the car, was about 40.

All in all it was a very nice trip – I'll have to do it again some time. 🙂
