Tour De Dixie

My parents left yesterday. It was pretty sad to see them go because this week was so much fun. We drove all over the place.

Wednesday, we ignored the weatherman and went to Zion's National Park: It was a bit cold and cloudy. But it was still beautiful. Dad helped watch Jay so that Mom and I could snap tons of pictures. (I'll spare you most of those.)
Friday, we tried yet again to go to Cedar Breaks... and we made it!
As you can tell, there was still snow on the ground. It was chilly.

Cedar Breaks happens to be right on the road to Bryce Canyon. So that's where we went next. On the way, we saw these huge patches of lava rock with aspens growing all around it. The bright fall colors on the black rock were so pretty.
Just before you get to Bryce, you pass a place called Red Canyon.
You get to drive through cool red arches too.
But even with all of the beauty we saw along the way, nothing really can compare to Bryce Canyon.
It's massive.
And breathtaking.
I love Southern Utah soooo much.

I think Jay does too.
I hope I have convinced you all to move down here and hang out with me.... or at least come visit.

I've been through Zion's once - briefly - but I've never seen Bryce Canyon. That IS amazing! Wow. And, yes, you don't have to do much convincing; I'm already dying to come pay you a visit down there... sometime... When it gets too cold here, how about. :)
