Spring hit and Laramie and I decided to get out of town. So we road tripped down to St. George, Utah, where my parents and my brother and his wife live. I love road trips (though I'm told I'm not the best road tripping buddy because I just bury my head in a magazine for the whole drive)! And the weather was great.
We stopped for one night along the way in Salt Lake City, just to break up the driving and have a little time to ourselves.
Southern Utah is beautiful. Really beautiful! Gorgeous landscape and awesome colors.
We took a short hike to see some ancient Anasazi petroglyphs.
The highlight of our trip was a hike to the top of Angel's Landing, in Zion National Park. While the first couple miles are a fairly typical hike, the last section is treacherous enough that a chain has been installed to hang on to as you climb over the steep rocks. You are hiking a narrow ridge with drop-offs on either side. It may sound scary, but it really isn't. It's a lot of fun, and the view from the top is incredible.
And finally, because we were with my Dad and he can smell out a good piece of pie anywhere...
