Zion.....We've Arrived.....Finally
So once we finally filled up the car in Cedar City we were off to Zion, the National Park. Steve had wanted to go there in the winter for some time and this seemed like to perfect time. Utah was in between winter storms and so off we went. It was beautiful with snow on the mountain tops and even some in the valley. We did three little hikes and each was different. One was pretty muddy hiking to a little water fall, once was snow covered hiking along the river to where the Narrows starts and on the last one we were shedding jackets. Steve gave me a new camera for Christmas (Nikon D90) so I took about 200 pictures learning the new settings. I finally figured out the timer so I could set it and run and get in the picture, pretty good for setting it on a rock and laying on the ground to see if everything was in the picture. Steve does pay attention though, for my birthday a week later he gave me a tripod and a camera back pack, now I can be like Craig. I have edited down the pictures to about 50. Enjoy (if I can figure how to do a slide show).
