Zion: The Turning Point

Zion National Park, Utah

This is as far north and west as we go this year.

The morning tennis scores are 6-1, 6-1. I lose again. She has a hat to shade her eyes, but I left mine at home.

They have some great hikes here (easy, moderate and strenuous). We do the easy Emerald Pool and the River Walk hikes.

We read in the afternoon and get sun-burned falling asleep in camp chairs. We make a campfire and roast Wal-Mart chicken apple sausages. The Utah State liquor store is cleverly camouflaged. We can't find it again, so we pour orange juice into our wine glasses.

The few inadequate pictures I take give a poor impression of this place, but you can figure if they put Zion National Park out in the middle of nowhere they must have had a reason.

We head for Bryce Canyon National Park in the morning we go east now at the turning point in the long loop toward home and the holidays
