A week ago I had a few hours with my wife and she wanted to go for a hike - So we drove to the canyon and started driving up. I took her to a favorite trail of mine and we hit the trail. Parking at the 'S' curve, we headed up the Broads Fork trail. Within minutes we were in another world. Sure we could hear the cars streaming up and down the canyon, but the aroma of pine trees and wild flowers melted the din into an unobtrusive aside.
We both loved just being out in the wild, unattached and undeterred by the electronic junk that dominates our day to day living. yes, we had no cell service - HOORAY!
45 minutes up the trail (probably 25 for the faster moving crowd) we came upon a huge rock. We paused to enjoy its unique form and then continued up a ways. We passed only 2 other people on our trek up and I pondered the proximity to more than a million people only a few miles away, and here we were in solitude.
After an hour we turned back and quickly retraced our steps. The trail was alot steeper on the way down, but we managed. Soon we arrived back at the parking lot and rested by the rushing waters of the mountain stream. We didn't want to leave and so we just basked in the overpowering sound of the rushing water.
You know we will be back
