Until we headed south and spent a few days at Zion National Park. There I realized that Utah had its own claim on beauty-in the form of red rock.
It wasn't anything like a tropical paradise, but I could deal with it. It was stunning and breathtaking in its own way.
We headed down south again this week. Two short days, but worth it.
Day 1 was spent at Capitol Reef.
Elijah and Kyle spent most of their time climbing to the highest peaks possible.
Wish pictures could do the beauty justice.
Honest to goodness petroglyph's...
We did a medium "hard" hike to Hickman's bridge.
This is not the bridge, just the half-way mark.
...and he's pretty cute too.
Apparently he hikes better in his poncho.
And all great days end in a swimming pool
don't you think?
