Smith and Moorehouse

Our day started at Einstien Bagels for coffee and a bagel. We carpooled up to the mountains.   We drove up beautiful Parley's canyon, US 40, and through Brown's canyon. 
We stopped briefly at the country store in Oakley. 
Then we went up the Weber Canyon road to Dave's cabin, enjoying great autumn views and Psalm 121.
Several in our group went fishing at the reservoir.
We hiked up trail 001 several. This trail will take you to the Mirror Lake Highway. 
Jesus blessed us with wonderful fall colors, clean air, great friends and lifetime memories.  Have your ever dreamed of going outdoors with Jesus?
