.zions.

A few weeks ago, Shauna and Roger invited us to go with them on a trip down to St. George and Zions!  We had so much fun with them!  I had never been to Zions- the one time my family took a trip down there I came down with the chicken pox and had to stay home!  I'm pretty sure I appreciated/enjoyed the hikes much more this time than I would have when I was 11 :)

We drove down on a Friday and then stayed with Shauna's family.  We got up early on Saturday morning and hiked Angels Landing- a beautiful hike but the last half mile is so narrow that there are chains for you to hold onto while you hike!  By the time we reached the top, it was certainly worth the view!! 


After Angels Landing, we had lunch and recharged ourselves to get ready for the Narrows.  We didn't go too far in since most of the day was spent, but we had fun and saw some waterfalls of the rocks and played in the chilly water. 


Sunday we we got to go to the Oquirrh Mountain Temple dedication with the Ririe clan and then had a wonderful breakfast!  We drove to Zions again and hiked some easy trails for a Sunday.   We hiked to Weeping Rock and also to the Emerald Pools! 


It was so much fun- thanks for inviting us! Oh, and watch out for these creeps on the trail!
