The outdoors revitalize my being no matter the activity and even if only for a moment.
Being outdoors reminds me of what is most important; therefore, I long most days to be in the great outdoors.

Jazz vs. Memphis Game

On Tuesday, February 17th I was able to go see the Utah Jazz take on the Memphis Grizzlies. It was the first game that Andre Kirilenko was back in since his injury. He played really well and he got a lot of cheers from the crowd. Miles and Brewer had some sweet dunks. I went with 3 other guys from work and my brother-in-law, Griffin. Leaving Logan wasn't bad, but Sardine canyon had several trucks stalled out from the snow drifts. We made it safe to the game and they closed down Sardine Canyon. Fortunately, by the time we went back through they had re-opened the canyon. I'm excited for the next game I get to go to with my Father-in-law and all my brother-in-laws. My boss said I could pick any game I want from the season tickets he has-what a great guy:)

Ice Fishing on Mantua Reservoir

I went ice fishing on Mantua Reservoir a couple of weeks ago and didn't catch much. I caught a few small perch that I didn't even bother to take a picture of. I found out from some other fishermen that I should have cut the perch up and used the meat. I guess that is how everyone was catching them. As you can see from the picture I walked a good distance to my spot. It was nice to just be out, but it would have been nicer to catch something decent too.
