Sheesh I’m late at getting this up…
Every year President’s Day holds a very significant meaning to me.
Over the long weekend my hiking friends and I hit the road to destinations far more beautiful than the tired looking Salt Lake City– all soggy and clinging to one inversion after another.
The past two years we have gone to Moab, UT. You can read about them HERE and HERE.
This year our hiking adventure took us to Zions National Park.
It snowed on us pretty much the entire time. But…holy shit was it ever beautiful!
Here are a few highlights from the trip.
- Day 1 – a snowy view from The River Walk
Staci, Heidi, and I, trying to stay warm and dry.
You can't go on a River Walk and not get a picture by the river, right?

But after every storm, the sun eventually comes back out. This is the view from our hotel that night.
The next morning on our way up Watchman, we found out the sun was a tease.
But that didn't keep us down. Staci proclaimed that every picture must have a silly pose.
After a huge storm rolled in with snowflakes the size of cotton balls, we decided the only logical thing to do was drink.
We took the long way home and Staci insisted on stopping every quarter of a mile to take a picture. This is me in the car taking a picture of her outside of the car. Who is the smarter sister I ask you?
But even from inside the car, it was hard not to get an amazing picture. Every direction you turned was breathtaking.
