How did he propose?

"We were on vacation in Arizona, and ended up taking a three day road trip while we were there. Our first stop was in Sedona where we hiked Cathedral Rock, an approximately 40 minute trip. Mike attempted to get on his knee two or three times during the hike, but continued to change his mind due to nerves. About 3/4 of the way up while I was taking a panoramic photo of the red rock view, he chose to get down on one knee. I remained completely oblivious and continued with my photography. As I was finishing the panoramic shot, I saw Mike out of the corner of my eye on one knee and said in confusion, "What are you doing!?" I looked at the ring in shock. I was in total disbelief that this was actually happening. He told me he had been thinking about this for quite some time, and had received my parents blessing. He told me how much he loved me, and I SAID YES! Best vacation/surprise I could have ever dreamed up."
