Pinto Creek Box - Part 2
Returned to the Box with Anna, the kids, a few close friends and a ring. No one seemed to mind the bushwhacking and boulder hopping required to get there. Well, not too much anyway. A few bumps, scratches and soakers are par for this off-trail route. The pay off made it all worth it.

On the way out, I gathered everyone together for a portrait, set up the camera on a tripod and set the timer to take 10 consecutive pics. Surprised Anna, well everyone, with a marriage proposal and ring. :o Couldn't have picked a better place or even better witnesses to share in the moment. We drove back home for an early pasta dinner and celebrated with wine, beer and bubbly. Great day.

P.S. - She said yes. :y:

Special thanks to Joe and Pam for the Pinto Box pre-scouting report.

This is my gym. I have to travel down a bumpy road to get there. There are no treadmillls, no machines, and no personal trainers. I walk..I run..I breathe the fresh air. I can go any time I want, as much as I want and there is no membership fee.
