Big Springs

On Saturday Robyn and I took a walk into some happy memories and some beautiful nature.

Just over five years ago, we were engaged in a meadow about a half mile above Big Springs Park in Provo canyon.  It had been a few years since we had been there so we decided to hike up to our meadow and then head up even higher.

I remembered it being a very difficult hike to get to our meadow.  This time around we walked right past it and I asked Robyn if we had taken a wrong turn because the trail didn't look familiar.  She explained that was because we had already hiked further than we had ever been.  I was confused because we hadn't got to the hard part yet.  Apparently losing 60 pounds and walking every day makes you unable to detect the hard part.

Here are a few fun pictures from our adventure while hiking Big Springs.

Robyn looks phenomenally cute in the wilderness

My hair is in that awkward stage where it's too short to comb but too long to not comb.  I call this one, "Robyn takes a selfie with a crazy clown."

Entering the meadow where we were engaged.

Robyn standing in the spot where we were engaged.  (Or, at least withing a few feet of it.  It's hard to tell among the grass.)

It's important to kiss in the meadow where we were engaged.

The river was pretty, Robyn was pretty.  I call this one, "overload of pretty."

I love the fall colors, and the trail among the falling leaves.

Sometimes Robyn rocks out in the wilderness and love spews forth from her hands.

She's getting so skinny!  Little known fact:  I have lost more pounds than Robyn, but she has lost a larger percentage of her body weight.
As you can see, it was a super fantabulous hike.  I have to do lots more hiking if I'm going to be ready to climb to the top of Timp next year.


  1. Love this post! You guys look really great and happy!

  2. Todd and I want to climb to the top of Timp next year!

    You guys do look great, and I am super happy that both of you are more healthy. Life is more fun when you feel good and can do stuff.

    1. Apparently, Jared hikes Timp every Labor Day, so that's when I was thinking of going. You could totally come too!

  3. You two are too precious for words and the wilderness is gorgeous. What a beautiful place to get engaged!

  4. I had a great time! I will have to do a lot more training if I am going to go with you to Timp, but if it is as beautiful as this hike was it would be worth the time and energy.

  5. You guys are so cute and sentimental. Oh, and I love the nature shot toward the end of the post. Gorgeous! I gotta go find me some fall leaves to photograph!
