I was thrilled when 25 people came out in the snow and slushy canyon roads EARLY in the morning for our breakfast in Millcreek Canyon!  

It's crazy weather activities like this that I'll always remember.
Even driving up the canyon road with a few trees laying in the middle of the road was exciting!

It's also a GREAT opportunity to practice emergency preparedness skills.

Thanks to everyone who came early at 7 am to help set up and especially those who came to eat!  Everyone had a great time.

Even without a campfire, we were prepared to stay warm and dry with portable pavilions.

Food always takes better outdoors.  It doesn't get better than freshly ground whole wheat pancakes, pure maple syrup, fresh fruit, sausage, bacon, scrambled eggs, hash browns and crepes.

Three people went hiking after the breakfast.

FYI:  Millcreek Canyon doesn't charge a fee on Memorial Day to get out of the canyon.
