After Las Vegas, we needed to get back to nature so we headed to Zion National Park in Utah. The weather was perfect for hiking and I can't begin to describe the beauty of this park so I won't. You just have to go there yourself.
A Joshua Tree. Always wanted to see one so I was beside myself.
I took these photos with my iphone and then zipped them off to family and friends! How cool is that?
And after a wonderful day of hiking, we had a delicious southwestern meal with a fresh margarita and guacamole.
We left Zion after a few days stay and headed for Bryce via Mount Carmel Highway. It was hard to stay on the road because there was one breathtaking view after another. I'm sure we said OMG a hundred times or more. The highway and structures of the park were built in the 1930's primarily by the Civilian Conservation Corps, a part of the New Deal work relief program. Jobs-highways-I'm just saying.
