Birthday Hike, Diamond Fork Hot Springs

It is not a celebration of Nicole if there is no active lifestyle activity of some kind.  So for my birthday this year we hiked up to the Diamond Fork Hot Springs.  It is one of those classic BYU student things you always hear about everyone doing, so naturally Erik and I had never done it.  I don't know why we fought the urge to join the crowd for so long! This hike is awesome.  2.5 miles of easy uphill hiking to some warm mineral springs to soak and relax in.  Just what a 37 week pregnant women needs!

We were joined by Jessica and Sam and their two little girls, and Megan, Morgan, and Maria. It took about 3 showers to fully get the sulfur smell out of our skin and hair, but it was totally worth it. It was a fabulous hike, I can't wait to go back.  Maybe next time we could snowshoe it!

Here are the instructions to the trail head and more details on the hike if anyone is interested.
