Mount Timpanogos from Locust Lane
We had no idea how much we would miss you! We really wanted to get out and now that we are out, we really want to come back! Who would've thought? However, we don't have a choice at this point...
When we entered you in the southeast corner, I almost cried because everything seemed so beautifully green. Green? You? Well, not only have you been getting rained on a lot but you have fields and grass and trees with leaves... Heaven!
You are also home to so many people we love very much! Grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and dear friends. We miss them much and are enjoying every minute we get to spend with them. Life without family and long-time friends is just a little harder than we had hoped.
Sure. Flagstaff has mountains. But they are nothing like your mountains. I love being surrounded by snow-covered peaks. Love seeing the sun rise from behind them. Love the many canyons we can hike, bike, and explore in. All right out our front door.
Have I mentioned that Flagstaff is dry? Once the snow is gone, there is not a single drop of water in town. We are in love with your rivers, streams, lakes, ponds, fountains, and outside swimming pools. It would be very nice if you could warm up just a little and let the sun shine on us a little more, so we can fully indulge in all the water fun!
You sure spoiled us. Now we know. It will be a while, but I think we might come back. Unless, of course, we go to Europe. But then again: the grass is always greener on the other side, right?
Love, the Jarvis Family
