Respect For My Elder

This place is called Cascade Springs and it's on the back side of Mt. Timpanogos. I use to go there all the time when I lived there and I love it. It is a natural fresh water spring that just bubbles spontaneously out of the side of the rocks way up in the mountains. It trickles down the mountainside and gains speed. It makes these beautifule pools on the way and by the time it reaches the bottom, it's a full fledged roaring river. It's so beautiful. When she was a lot younger, I use to take my dad's bull dog, Murphy there. We had so much fun. We would just hike around on the trails up there and every once in a while she'd feel brave and just leap right off a bridge into the water. The rangers would give me a dirty look and I'd have to apolagize. She's gotten so old now. She can barely walk and if anyone in the family starts to laugh she starts to bark because she just wants everyone to be quiet so she can sleep. She's getting a little grumpy but I don't mind because I remember when she use to be so full of energy. I know we'll all miss our sweet little bull dog when she goes.


  1. Tiecen, thanks for reading my blog! I appreciate it! The site meter will drive you crazy but this is how I found it. I went to and downloaded their free counter. It will explain where to put the code for it in the template of your blog. After it is loaded, you can see how many people visit, where they are located, how long they are on, etc. It is real cool but you start checking it like 5,000 times per day which is what drove me nuts. Hope this helps. Have a great day and thanks again for reading!

  2. Or you can visit me at my blog and click on my site meter. It will take you right there.

  3. That is an absolutely beautiful place! Hi! I came to check out your blog after I read your post at Mark's blog! You seem really cool and I will probably be back quite a bit! Take care and feel free to peruse my blog any time you like!
