Snow and rain didn't scare us away from hiking National Bridges National Park today. Although the morning was pretty lazy, the afternoon brought a vigorous 8-mile hike through a serpentine canyon to several incredible natural stone bridges. We even braved a little snow flurry to complete our trek through the natural beauty. Our timing was perfect, for we caught the sunset at the very end of our hike.
While the hikers had an incredible time, Monica, Hunter, and Eric stayed behind to help set up the adobe brick making machine. Those workaholics. But thanks to their efforts, we'll be making bricks tomorrow! Fun times!
In the evening, after an amazing dinner (as usual), we experienced a bit of a scare when the power went out at the Scorup House and throughout the whole town of Bluff! We lit candles to play games by, but almost as soon as all of the candles were lit, the power returned to the house. We were excited to have a little "lights out" experience.

Ooooh . . . sunset.

Totally awesome dinner. Eric and Lindsay rocked the house with their ribs and chicken, slow-roasted to perfection and smothered in sassy barbeque sauce. Of course, what Southern feast would be complete without baked beans, coleslaw, and cornbread? Every one of us was stuffed with barbequed goodness.

    Hello, hard workers!
    It looks like you are having a lot of fun in a CONSTRUCTION SITE !
    I know why you went there - it's for the dinners. It's plain to see.
    Boga - I trust that you and Camille are very strong candidates for the "Little Miss Mason" Pageant. "The divas of dirt" picture is BEAUTIFUL.
    I would suggest Boga to work a little more in the bike, if this is going to be her special talent.
    Where would you use the scholarship money, though?

    Kandice and Nathan were excited to see what you are doing. They want to make bricks too.
    What a role model.

    Keep up the blog - it's awesome!!
