Arrowhead Alfresco

Last Valentine’s Day, I gave Jason a year’s worth of quality time in monthly installments. I’ll get more into the details of that on another occasion but, for now, I’m just going to cover our most recent quality outing.

I do a lot of photo experimentation these days; that dot on the fence is Jason.

My scheme for August was a picnic at Arrowhead Summit, which is located at the top of Sundance Resort. Up on that 8,250-foot ridge, the Heber and Utah Valleys sprawled on either side of us like sleepy companions while a grassy spot in the shade served as our living table.

We found the perfect grassy patch shaded by a cropping of aspens on which to picnic.

We brought an eclectic but tasty assortment of fresh fruit, crisp veggies, hard-boiled eggs, salad, rolls and cookies for our alfresco dinning. It may sound like a tummy ache in a handbasket but it settled nicely.

The view from our picnic point was pretty remarkable.

After we stuffed ourselves with those diverse victuals, we decided to wander halfway down the mountain instead of taking the lift. If we had had more time for quality time that afternoon, we would have gone on a real hike but, sadly, this downhill ambling was all we could fit in.

I wouldn't call this hiking; it was more like walking on a mountain.

It’s not often a girl gets to cozy up with her man and a mountain all in the same afternoon. I was fortunate and full indeed.
