A little late...

I know we're a few days late but we just wanted to wish all of our friends and family Happy Holidays! Our New Year's resolution will be to update our blog more frequently. :)

Turkey Freeze Out '07

This past weekend was the annual Turkey Freeze Out. Bri and I went down Horseshoe Canyon to the Great Gallery on Saturday and Hiked part of Blue John Canyon on Sunday. It was incredibly cold with 3-4 inches of fresh snow.

OCMS Encore

I was so excited to post pictures of Old Crow Medicine Show live at the Depot. There we were, right next to the stage singing along with Willie, Ketch and the gang when we realized we had left the camera in the car. Sad story, I know. But I decided to post their music video anyway because they are amazing.

The Annual Moab Trip

Here are some pictures of our fun-filled weekend in Moab.

The boys on the summit of Elephant Butte, the highest point in Arches.

Ty introducing Micah to the world of slot canyons.

We also went to the Folk Festival and saw Peter Rowan, Kenny White, and Catie Curtis.

Happy Halloween!

On Friday, we celebrated Halloween Murdock style. It was pretty exciting this year with a lot of fun and creepy costumes. Mckell won "best costume" with her 80's school teacher attire and Ty came in second with his disturbing mask.

For our spooky costumes, I was a black cat/mouse/creature and we decided it doesn't get scarier than President Bush.
It got a little political, with Ty as President Bush, Alina as the Devil in her "WAR" shirt and Brian as the Angel in his "PEACE" shirt...

We're Baaaack!

I know it has been AGES since we updated our blog, but we haven't had anything too exciting to share with everyone... until now! While we have been busy with work, school, and homework, we found some time to squeeze in a river trip! It was a much needed break away from our crazy busy lives.

On Friday we hiked up to the Doll House. Although I realized how out of shape I am, it was really beautiful!

Me and Kell, pondering on life! Look closely and you can see the La Sal Mountains in the background.

Oregon Coast

This gives you an idea of how green it is there.

Yes, Todd and Ash that is The Be Good Tanyas with Old Crow Medicine Show. We thought of you the whole time and wished guys were with us. They were playing in Portland and we just couldn't pass the oppurtunity to see them play together.

We went backpacking on the northern Oregon coast. It was amazing even though it rained pretty much the whole time.

We just got home from our trip to Oregon this week. We had two weeks off of school before we started back yesterday so we decided to take off for a couple of days. It was nice to get away from the heat of Utah and especially our apartment with no AC and enjoy the nice coastal tempatures of Oregon.

Lower Cougar Camp

Look close, Yes that is Creed in Sedona's purple flower sleeping bag.

Last weekend Bri, Creed, Chad Nelson and I ran Westwater Canyon on the Colorado. It was a great trip and was the inaugural trip for Creeds new boat.

La Sal Mountains

On saturday Creed, Bri and Nate and I hiked to the summit of Manns Peak (12,272)

This past weekend we spent in the La Sals with the family. It was nice to get out of the heat and into the cool air. We also hiked into the "Cowboy Jacuzzi" to do a little swimming.

Beetle Infestation

Last week, Ty found a little friend hiding behind our fridge! It was seriously the biggest beetle I have ever seen! River, I'm sure you've seen bigger but we thought you might like these pictures.. Due to the bug infestation, we are moving out of our apartment sometime in the next couple of weeks! Okay, maybe not because of the bugs but we really are moving! We found a pretty cheap apartment in Orem about ten minutes from work and school for both of us. Hopefully this will save us some time and also some gas money!

Silver Lake Extravaganza

Yesterday Tyler and I went hiking up American Fork Canyon to Silver Lake. We attempted to hike to Silver Glance Lake which is just above Silver Lake but... whoops we hiked up the wrong ridge! It was still fun except somehow I ended up with only 9 toenails left by the time we were done! :) Anyways, that was pretty painful but I learned a valuable lesson... no more hiking in chaco's!

REK Concert

Last night we went to the Robert Earl Keen concert. I don't know who was more entertaining between Robert and the people around us! We're working on a youtube video so as soon as it's ready, you will have the pleasure of watching the cutest old man jammin out! It was hilarious!

Left Fork of Huntington

For our big 4th of July vacation, we went backpacking with Mckell, Sam, and Stevie Boy. Me and Mckell "hung out" in our cacoons while the boys went fishing.

Goodbye RKelly link :(

So as much as we love good ol' RKelly, his music video has some pretty nasty coments on it(thanks Miranda for spotting those!:) Anyways, I'm sad to say I have taken off the link and I know you will all be devestated... Try to be tough and RKelly will remain in your hearts if you let him! Speaking of criminals, the best news of the day... the utah county jail website is open again so if you are bored, google it and you will get some pretty cheap thrills!

Crawdad Canyon

We went to St George this weekend and took my family rock climbing in Crawdad Canyon. Even though it was a little cooler in the canyon, it was still roasting!

Like Sheep..

We follow! Okay, so we finally caved and started our own blog. I know it won't compare to Alina's creativity, Todd and Ash's sweet Belize pics, or Kell's "punny" jokes, but here it goes anyways...
