Zion's National Park
That place is so beautiful
At times though I wanted to leave and never return
Dave and I were reminiscing the other day,
he asked me my favorite and least favorite part of that trip.
I answered, "I hated the third hike we did but I loved that I finished it."
While we were there, we saw 2 shows at Tuacahn
The Little Mermaid and Grease
TLM was amazing!
So very creative and magical
What Disney creation is not magical?
Grease was good too.
I love all the old cars that were all over the stage
It was nice weekend away from the heat and spent with some really great friends.
Now enjoy the many photos that I had to narrow down.
|Ryan and I at the end of our 1st hike|
|Kristen, Dave, Ryan, Troy and Yours Truly|
|Love this view|
|Kristen is terrified of heights.|
It took a lot to get her to take this photo with me as you can tell
|I don't know who snapped this, maybe Dave.|
I was enjoying some alone time taking in the beauty
|We had to leave Dave at the bottom of our 2nd hike, his knee was killing him|
I got control of his camera and snapped these.
Troy, Ryan and Kristen
|That's right, I snapped this gorgeous pix|
|Troy, Kristen, Yours Truly and Ryan|
|We saw a lot of wildlife|
We were coming down the hike and saw a deer.
|Kristen and I|
|We met up with Ellen and Lindsay later the 1st day|
Here we are at the beginning of TLM
Ellen, Lindsay, Troy and Dave
|Ryan, Yours Truly and Kristen|
I was actually sick during that night
I fell asleep during the performance, whoops
|The stage with the gorgeous natural background|
|Us with Prince Eric and Ariel after the show|
|Getting ready to load the bus to what I like to call our "Death Hike"|
|The boys were already ahead of us on the many switchbacks|
Yours Truly, Ellen and Kristen
|You can see in this photo a little part of the switchbacks that we had to climb|
Kill me now! Kill me now.
|After many many many stops and 3 hours later I made it to the top|
People were actually cheering for me that I didn't know
I got a little choked up, I admit
|What I climb up a mountain to see|
|The whole crew|
Lindsay, Ellen, Ryan, Kristen, Dave, Yours Truly and Troy
|We like craziness|
|The boys and I|
|Coming back down which was such a breeze|
I need to find a hike that is downhill both ways, haha
|Resting for a bit|
|You can already see the joy on my face that the "Death Hike" is almost done|
|Finished and happy as I can be|
|We went to Iceberg before we headed to Grease|
Yummy shakes and a friend that teases me to no end
|We had to stop to see the St. George Temple|
|Ryan had to leave so it's just the 3 of us|
|Dave, Lindsay, Yours Truly, Ellen, Kristen and Troy|
|I loved Tuacahn and can't wait to go see more shows|
|On the way home we stopped at some bridge that Ellen wanted to see|
Definitely beautiful. I love the red rock
|This is funny. We walk into the bathroom and see that the stalls are super short|
So weird to see heads pop up when us women were done.
Love the face Kristen!
So much fun and memories that I will always love and cherish
I love being in nature cause you see Christ's love for us with his creation
Thanks Dave for putting this together :)
