Thursday and it's time to head out again! Yes, we are cramming in as much as possible in the few days we have here.
Zion National Park, a must see, when visiting the St. George, Utah area. A wonder of beauty, red sandstone and rugged terrain.
Winding roads lead to nine various points of interest, walking trails and many many photo opportunities. We went up through the 1 mile tunnel capturing some stunning scenery along the way including deer to the side of the road, a missed photo opportunity for those.
Returning through the tunnel we made our way along from the Zion Lodge and through to The Grotto Trailhead. The walking trail here would lead you on and up the path to Angel's Landing. A trail that reaches the summit with the final path being a mere 2foot wide and a chain fence (sorry I mean a chain between two posts and so on!) to hang on. With correct footwear, bit more fitness and during summertime I would think about attempting that one!
Onward to the Temple of Sinawava. We did the 2 mile Riverwalk trail. Ambling along the canyon alongside the river, the water and it's pale emerald colour which is in fact perfectly crystal clear and exceptionally cool. Yes of course I put my hand in! 🙂
After we got done there we headed back into Springdale to Wildcat Willie's for a great lunch, a beer and well, ended up buying some of the beer glasses!
Next it was get back into town and onto Dixie and TL's for dinner. What a fabulous evening, not only for drooling over every corner of their fabulous home, but for the exceptional company and guests – Dixie, TL, Virgil, Allie, Pat, Twelve Mile Reb, Dusty Garnet and Juan Bad Hombre.
Oh and thanks for the use of your sewing machine Dixie! Love your sewing room 😉
P.S. We did go past the cowboy range where Dixie Desperado's shoot at the Southern Utah Shooting Sports Park! We will come back to shoot one day, enjoy your Wild Bunch club match tomorrow.
