Suit Shopping and rock climbing

Well, this weekend was an expensive one for me, I went and bought two suits for my mission, a pair of shoes, some slacks, socks, and baptismal clothing, oh and a mandarin chinese pocket dictionary. then that night i went rock climbing and had a pretty fun weekend. Saturday night after I went rock climbing I set up a projector outside and played mario kart with some friends. it was pretty fun.

Hiking to the Table

Well, I have never hiked Table Rock, so I decided that it was something I was going to do this summer, I put together a trip and 5 of us spent the night in the teton campground area that night, and then two more people drove up there saturday morning to hike it with us. There were 7 of us all together, David, Richard, Linden, Brent, Kenny, Luke, and me. It was a fun hike, we hiked up the face trail, and then hiked down the huckleberry trail. I prefer the face trail because it is a lot shorter, it is a consistent up hill climb the whole way though, but you don't have to ford teton creek 3 times, and its about 1.5 miles shorter. sounds like a good deal to me! Some of us also hiked out to inspiration point, which is a point on a cliff where there is probably at least a thousand foot vertical drop off the edge, it was pretty cool! It made for a fun trip!
