Road Trip Part 1

Okay! Finally found time to write something to let you know how I'm doing.

On the 4th we drove from Orange County, CA to St. George, Utah. We had, of course, a stop to eat in Las Vegas on the way. We got to St. George pretty exhausted and were only willing to go see fireworks from the parking lot of the hotel. Still, it was a pretty decent show.
The next day we headed out to Zion National Park. What an incredible place. These pictures do not even begin to capture the scope of the canyon walls. I will surely be making my way back here in the future.

The water seeps out of the rocks which allows plants to grow, creating natural hanging gardens.
This image appears to be too small. It is a 360-degree panorama of a spot called Big Bend. The right side of the image connects to the left side.
This is Weeping Rock. Water literally showers down from out of the rock face all the way up this cliff face (the cliff goes up probably 1-2 thousand feet from where this picture was taken. It has this neat little alcove that only kinda shelters you from the water.
Me, my wife and her parents just south of the upper Emerald Pool.
Yesterday (or today as I'm writing this) we drove through Zion, past Lake Powell through Four Corners and into Mesa Verde National Park. This time we are staying at the lodge inside the park. Below is the view from our bedroom window. Breathtaking.

That is all for now, I'll try to get some pictures up from Mesa Verde before we leave here. Then no pictures until next weekend (but if you are lucky I'll post some verbal recollections.)
