ZION

Romney REALLY wanted to get away. So we packed up and headed up to Zion National Park to do a little camping. We had a great time! There are lots of waterfalls and little streams everywhere from the snow melting. The trees were beginning to bloom. I absolutely enjoyed this trip. I loved the trails we hiked, the mountains, the weather, and of course my hiking partner. It was so great being outdoors taking in good ol' Mother Nature. We're ready to do this again...very soon actually.

I think YOU are the one that REALLY wanted to get away (smile). We are on for Saturday! I just need to get a babysitter. Is there a dance this weekend? We always seem to plan a night out the same time as a stk. dance and then all the babysitters are there. Let me know what you know 'k'.

How fun! I love to go camping!! I so need to get away, but it won't happen for a long time right now. What beautiful scenes.

How fun for you guys! Byron says it's one of the coolest places on the planet. I've never been there, but have the intention of going someday. Did you stay in a tent on the trail or what? Was it cold? Just curious. Looks like you guys had a great time! How's the house coming? Anyway--Love you both!

Sharla said...

Wow! Your pics are beautiful! We haven't been since Everett was one. You are so brave, I can't stand camping unless it is with a large group. Safety in numbers, right?

Not that you will see this comment b/c you have so so many fans who have left comment after comment you probably grow weary from reading all of them, but I wanted to let you know that the bald eagle has NOT landed. I repeat, the bald eagle has NOT landed. Maybe it will next month =) Just wanted to keep you up to date. xoxox

K i love it that you went to Zion, but I want to see this house of yours!

Ashley said...

Yeah...Jake was scheduled off the 18th-24th, and I'm due on the 21st, so he *should* be here, but you never know!! I decided if he isn't I'll just have everybody there, like my mom, Jake's mom and sister and Rachel, the more, the merrier!! lol!!

Gabe & Christy said...

Im going to have to block your blog from my husband if you keep posting these ridiculous things on nature and home improvement. If you start cooking gourmet meals and watching football - well lets just say your link will mysteriously disappear from our page!!! I dont want him knowing that there are wives out there that ENJOY HIKING!!!! HE still thinks they are MYTHS!!!

The Trout Fam said...

We loved your pictures! Zion's is one of our favorite adventures and a great place to 'cool off' during the summer!
