We hit the 5 year mark! Time is really funny. Some days you feel like it's been forever but when thinking about a certain moment (like our wedding day) I'm like "wow that was 5 years ago?!" To celebrate we mainly went to Disneyland, but we also decided to go on the La Luz trail heading to the Sandia Peak, eat at the restaurant there, then hit the tram down on our actual anniversary.
The hike feels like real life. You have to work hard before it starts to pay off. The first half was hot and not too pretty or shaded. Then all of a sudden it's green and shaded and breath taking. It was a perfect day to go (we couldn't leave until after noon and the weather cooperated). Here are some pictures, because blog posts are boring otherwise (I'm not alone in this right?).
I didn't get a picture of the wild flowers, but there were so many colors! It took some self restraint not to make a wild flower bouquet. The little tree pictured above was interesting. The tips were this bright green and super soft. Then it transitioned into a normal bristly pine tree. Now for Sandia Peak!

Happy anniversary Sam! An eternity with you sounds heavenly :)
