After three weeks of planning came leaving day and we were so excited that we could not sleep and we decided to leave early at 4:00 AM. We cruised through Las Vegas, and arrived in St. George Utah by early afternoon. Then we were off on our two week adventure driving to five National Parks and one State Park. They are all beautiful but different. We started in Zion National Park , and took the environmentally friendly tram to all the viewing stops. At one we decided to see "Weeping Rock ", and do a short hike to see the beautiful pools. I accidently picked the wrong fork in the trail and Sandy and I ended up going the long and more difficult way. We finally got the Pools, and they were dried up and ugly. Going back down proved a bit steep with some difficult footing. My sweet Sandy is some what afraid of heights, so she had to go down some passages on her butt. Oh well, stuff happens. At least we avoided having to be evacuated by helicopter.
We really did enjoy the beauty of Zion National Park . Please cick on this picture to go to the Utah gallery on this website to see many stunning Utah Parks photos.
