Brianhead With the Yagers

Our friends, Kiel and Emily, invited us down to Emily's family condo in Brianhead in mid-July. It was a fun little weekend getaway from the work week. I hadn't really spent much time in Southern Utah, and I was loving the beautiful views of the red rock! It's funny to think that this place actually gets lots of snow in the winter! 

The scenery on the way to our hike totally reminded me of the movie Cars. Haha. 

We drove a couple hours to go on a hike where we thought we'd find a waterfall at the end. But instead....

we got caught in the middle of a rain/hail storm in the middle of the desert! What are the chances? So even though we didn't find a waterfall at the end of the hike, we definitely saw several after the rainstorm! Even though the hail was a little harsh on the skin, we definitely had some great laughs afterward.

We spent our nights watching movies and playing lots of cards - we're going to miss them when they move to D.C. this fall! Thanks for the great trip, guys. :)
