I spent Memorial Day weekend with my family in Southern Utah. It was an absolutely wonderful and much needed break from the daily grind! Early Saturday morning my Dad and I drove down to St. George to get the motor home out of storage and get everything hooked up to the RV park. We were very happy because the motor home survived the winter without any leaks or damage and it even started on the first try. All we had to do was get some propane and then we were set! We have not taken the motor home anywhere this year because my Mom has been recovering from some major back surgery. We are so glad that she is doing well enough to go camping once again! Marilyn drove my Mom to St. George later in the day and we spent the evening enjoying the sunshine! We ended the day with a birthday cake for Marilyn.
One of the best things about staying in St. George is being so close to so many different National Parks! On Sunday morning Marilyn and I went to Zion National Park and spent the day there. I absolutely love Zion! Here are some of the amazing geologic formations:
In the evening my cousin John, who lives in St. George, came to visit us and we had a BBQ. It was a lot of fun talking to him!
Monday morning Marilyn and I headed to Bryce Canyon National Park. It is unbelievable that all of these formations were caused by weathering and erosion!
After spending the day at Bryce Canyon Marilyn and I made the long, but scenic, drive home along S.R. 89. It was hard to leave sunny Southern Utah to come home to the dreary weather of Salt Lake, especially when my parents were able to stay for a few more days! But some people had to work in the morning!
