Wordless Wednesday September 8, 2021

 Driving from Salt Lake City Utah to St George Utah!

Fortunately Wednesday's drive was only 4 hours! We planned on arriving a day early so we could explore before all the other folks arrived and things would get very busy. So after we got settled in to our hotel we did some exploring of St George's city and then Thursday we drove through Zion National Park . The weather has been hot and dry- thank goodness not humid! Our hotel has a nice pool so we took advantage of that and relaxed and read our books. Tomorrow will be super busy with everyone arriving and all of us getting together for dinner Thursday night. Here are some photos from our tour of Zion National Park. Enjoy!

I am not sure what flowers these are-
the views and far away vistas were stunning. 

There were a series of tunnels that we went through and as we made the choice of not taking the shuttle bus there was a point where we had to turn around and retrace our drive. But that was fine as by turning around we saw more views.

Later in the day we joined our friends at the great restaurant called the Cliffside! I will post photos of that event when someone sends them to me-  I was too busy eating and chatting and forgot to take a few snaps! It was a great place to visit and eat- delicious food and a great view!
Have a great day! Enjoy!
I'll be back tomorrow with the beginning of the race!
