ZION NATIONAL PARK

Zion National Park is one of the most popular parks in southern Utah with very limited parking.  The  best option is to park in the town of Springdale and take the free shuttle to the park entrance then take a park shuttle to whatever sight you want to visit in the park. (Pro tip: When you park in Springdale park far away from the park entrance since the buses fill up on their way to the park so you might have to wait for several buses to go by before one has any seats available, we parked close to stop 6 and the bus was nearly empty each time) Riverside Walk…

BRYCE CANYON NATIONAL PARK

Moon Walk Lotto For 2 consecutive nights during the full moon the park has a lottery for a guided tour after dark with a telescope set up for viewing the amazing landscape.

So what do you do?  What else, you head to In-N-Out.  This was a new experience for us because they don't exist in Spokane. Virgin River Trail system Like the name imply's, the Virgin River…

ANTELOPE CANYON AND HORSESHOE BEND

Off for another adventure.  We laughed when we looked back at this picture - I thought only old people dressed alike.  It must be something that happens when you've been married a long time because trust me, I don't pick out his clothes in the morning. Horseshoe Bend Horseshoe Bend is just outside of Page, Arizona and is a heavily photographed view of the Colorado river. You can't tell from the pictures but the wind was blowing so hard that it was picking up sand and exfoliating our skin. While exfoliating might sound like a day at the spa it was pretty much the opposite of a nice relaxing day at…
