This post is about a month overdue, but hey, at least it’s happening. In early November, Bryce, Jared, Chris, Michael and I set off to St. George to meet up with Naomi (hooray!) and her friend Amber for a weekend of warmth and fun in St. George. The warm part never really came to fruition, but great fun was had by all.
We set out to Zion Saturday morning, and it was snowing. And while that killed our plans to hike Angel’s Landing, it was a pretty spectacular sight to see the snow fall on the red rocks, framed by the brilliant fall foliage. The weather gave us the opportunity to do a bunch of the smaller hikes in the park and it turned out to be a perfect day. All to be followed up with an amazing dinner out in the middle of nowhere, Ivins. Sadly, Jared was pretty under the weather and slept in the car for most of the day and then ended up out at his grandmother’s for some strict grandmothering. Sunday morning we went to Petroglyph Park and then toured the Church sites in the area, including the temple, Tabernacle, Brigham Young’s winter home, and the Jacob Hamblin home. It was nice to get a refresher on the history of the community and Church.
I loved spending the weekend with such cheerful, witty and adventure seeking friends, and I especially enjoyed going with Bryce – returning to the scene of where it all began. Friends, food, nature. An unbeatable trifecta.
