We woke up and had a wonderful morning going for a walk with temps in the 80's. It was still hot, but we were actually outside, and that was what mattered to us! Viewing pine trees and being able to hold hands without getting a heat rash was the most important thing!
We decided to grab a quick lunch and head to our planned adventure, a ropes course called Flagstaff Extreme.
We were really excited and had planned our whole getaway around this, but noticed some lightening and thunder just as we got out of our vehicle. Apparently they have to wait an hour without any strikes to clear people being on the course. Who knew, lightening and people in tall trees don't mix? JK, I'm grateful to be alive and safe, even though we watched everyone exit and after waiting almost 2 hours determined this wasn't going to happen on this trip.
It was quickly decided this wasn't going to ruin anything for us, and we were going to enjoy the beautiful mountains even in the rain. We went for a drive, and Jacob asked me if I've ever heard that pine trees smell like either chocolate, vanilla, or strawberry. I grew up in the mountains, and had never heard this. He made me get out in the rain to test. Maybe it was just mental, but strawberry was the flavor of the pine! We didn't mind kissing in the rain, a bucketlist item Mr. Jacob has helped me check off a few times.
We headed downtown to the happening part of the town.
Diablo Burger, it was one place we would recommend to anyone who likes beef!
Jacob went spicy with "The Cheech" eating avocado, jalapeno, and pepper jack. He was in love.
