"A (wo)man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of (her)his life in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of beautiful God has implanted in the human soul."- Goethe

Tuesday's Hike: The Y

On a Tuesday that we couldn't find ourselves a hiking buddy, P Double-B and I took a hike up the Y, which has enough foot traffic to keep it safe. We'd like to hike to every letter of the alphabet, but I don't know if it's possible. Is it?

The babes pointed out that there are four kinds of people who frequent this trail, and I'm inclined to agree with her observations:
1) Silly BYU freshmen who are too busy flirting with one another to watch where they're going
2) Crazy BYU athletes who run all the way up and down to impress everyone
3) Old BYU alumni who used to hike the Y when they were in college and have brought their families to reminisce but have forgotten how difficult it can be
4) People who feel safe enough to hike this trail alone because Tuesday is hiking day, no matter what

Things to know about this hike:
  • This is a high-traffic trail, so expect lots of company
  • Time: 40 minutes up, 20 minutes down
  • Location: Provo
  • Difficulty: moderate
  • Hazards: loose gravel on inclines, freshmen who aren't watching where they're walking, crazies running up and down the trail, and smug people who are on their way down the trail while you're going up (just try to not be one yourself...it's nearly impossible!)
