hiking the y.

behind brigham young university there is a large cement "y" up on the mountain.  you can hike all the way to the top, it's amazing!  before evan and i were even dating we would go up there and just talk and laugh while we overlooked utah valley.  if you're ever in town you should totally do it!

the other night around 8:30 we decided to make the hike.  every time i hike the y it catches me off guard how difficult it is.  it is a relatively short hike, but it's steep the entire way up. boy oh boy was i gassed by the top. fortunately, it was an absolutely perfect evening {nice and cool}.

once we reached the top, we sat down and looked at the view of the sun setting over utah valley, and it took my breath away.  the grandeur of the mountains, the colors of the sunset, and the bright twinkles of the lights in the city were perfect reminders of just how creative and worthy of praise God is.  

"praise him, sun and moon, praise him, all you shining stars!
praise him, you highest heavens, and you waters above the heavens!
mountains and hills, fruit trees and cedars!
let them praise the name of the Lord for his name alone is exalted;
his majesty is above the earth and heaven." 
{psalm 148:3-4, 9 &13}
