ain't no mountain high, ain't no valley low...

i've been in wisconsin for about two months now.
(crazy, right?)
so let's talk about one of the main differences between UT and WI:

MOUNTAINS.

this is a picture i took from the top of the highest
point in north-central wisconsin: granite peak.
(about 700 feet up)
i hiked the mountain with one of the boys from work last month. the trail was pretty much straight up -- crazy steep. but it was a nice hike and a pretty view with all the autumn leaves changing.

for the sake of comparison, here's the view
from the top of "Y" mountain in provo:
how high is the "Y?"
oh you know...about 8,520 feet.

another fun fact:
the cement "Y" itself is about 380 feet high...
a little more than half the height of my new highest mountain ( :
