This is a view of our lake. Oquirrh {pronounced O-ker} Lake. Beyond it you can see the Oquirrh mountain range and, of course, Kennecott copper mine. Kennecott owns the land on which our home and the community of Daybreak is built; they make many of the decisions including that to keep our community energy efficient and planned effectively. Whenever Nate and I refer to this unknown, unseen decision maker, we call him Hank. Hank Kennecott. Sometimes we like Hank and sometimes we despise him.
Nate and I took a nice motorcycle ride through Yellow Fork Canyon on Friday night. I needed to decompress. I love the mountains and always feel like I can breath better when I'm in the trees, smelling foliage or a camp fire. I feel the stress getting sucked right out of my lungs every time I exhale. Such a nice feeling to know that reprieve is just 30 minutes away.

I feel the exact same way about being in the mountains... you've really made me homesick with this post.
