Climb Every Mountain

The title of this post comes from one morning after Jamie Z. hiked Y Mt. and stood in front of our apartment, looking up at the Wasatch range humming to herself.

The Y Mt. hike is steep and fast (esp. with Gregory S.), so I think it was as hard physically as any time I've climbed Timp. It's also a heck of a lot prettier once you get past the Y and move around to the back of the mountain.
This is where I live!

I saw Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Can't Stop Thinking About It.

I don't want to spoiler you all, but while James Franco thinks Planet of the Apes is about how evil money is, I think he's just a little biased in favor of his character. Money may be the root of all evil, but the road to hell is paved with good intentions. A lot of times, we think we're doing good, and I don't just mean tampering in God's domain (although I never thought apes were adorable until last night). I mean sometimes we just go in blind trying to do the best we can. Usually it works out. Sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes it leads to an army of super-apes.
