I'm really thankful for the family friends that we have here, who have welcomed us and made us feel comfortable in a new city. It really helps to know some friends when you move to a completely new place- just like how our friends Laura and Josiah made us feel so welcome when we first moved to Saipan! (We miss you guys!)
We've been taking advantage of the gorgeous fall weather and have taken a couple of hikes up into the mountains. Here's a few pics:
Here's the view from a drive over to Park City. We could only spend a few hours there the day we went because Brian had to work, but we plan on going back soon. Park City has such a cool feeling, with lots of great restaurants and shopping.
Sam's been cooped up in here kennel a lot since we got here, so we try to take her out with us when we can. She likes sticking her head out the window.
One of the ski resorts here.
A Saturday morning hike up Big Cottonwood Canyon. Saipan had no fall weather, so I'm loving the fall colors and cooler temperatures. We've been sleeping with our window open every night and it feels freezing when you wake up in the morning.
Still getting used to the higher altitude here. I felt so out of breath while we were hiking and had to take lots of breaks, even though we didn't go that far!
