I had the opportunity to take pictures of the most beautiful baby girl this week. She is already very photogenic, and I cannot wait to see her and her amazing parents again.
We had beautiful weather over the Easter weekend, and we took advantage of it with two great hikes in the Utah canyons, Adams Canyon and Ferguson Canyon. If you live in or are visiting the Salt Lake City area, I would highly recommend the book 60 Hikes Within 60 Miles Salt Lake City by Greg Witt. It has a variety of hikes from short strolls, to alpine lakes and waterfalls, and up to longer, more strenuous summit routes.
As I was looking through photos on Flickr today, I began longing for spring in Italy. After I graduated from undergrad, my sculpture professor coordinated a trip to Italy for a few weeks. We roamed around (and got terribly lost) in Venice, drove a gondola, explored spectacular churches and museums (the statue of David and Michelangelo’s unfinished sculptures are breathtaking), ate the most delicious food (I think we lived off of parmesan, fresh bread, wine and gelato for days–until we were treated to a delicious meal at the restaurant that developed fettuccine alfredo!), and just simply enjoyed the beautiful scenery that emerges in spring. I was so enamored with Italy that I got lost in Verona within hours of our arrival. When I am surrounded by beauty and I have my camera, I tend to forget to look outside of my viewfinder. After losing my entire group and thinking I would be lost in Italy forever (which doesn’t seem so bad now), the group quickly learned to keep watch on me. It was just too easy to get lost in the magic of Italy.
We had beautiful weather this weekend, and saturday we traveled up into the mountains to Canyons in Park City, Utah. It was too warm for skiing (nearly 70 degrees!), but it was perfect for watching the Red Bull Schlittentag. I think I am inspired to break out a saw and come up with some crazy idea for a sled next year. Although almost everyone crashed, it looked like an amazingly fun way to make it down the hill on a sunny, slushy snow spring day.
