So friends, here are the photos from Zion at last.
We had such a great time on the trip to Zion with the Sun City Anthem RV club. Lots of outdoor activities, lots of happy hours and lots of shared memories.
The first day, shortly after arrival we had happy hour, heavy appetizers and then a camp fire with our two guitarists, John and Doug playing while the rest of us TRIED to sing. Out of the 40 or so there, only about two had a voice that you would want to listen to under other circumstances. But then it was all in good fun.
The second day we hiked a couple of easy trails in Zion. It was a perfect day … cool weather and clear skies.
Having had enough hiking, we shopped in Springfield the third day and went to an old Mormon ghost town just outside of Rockville in the old town of Grafton with our friends Scott and Donna. It had a small cemetery, a school house and a couple of other old buildings. The interesting thing about the cemetery was seeing how many people died from the pandemic flu and from Indian attacks. Also, it was interesting to see how short their lives were. Most died either as children or as young adults. You might notice in one of the photos someone was trespassing while taking photos. Naughty!
The last day we went to Kanab and we stopped to see BEST FRIENDS, a beautiful animal sanctuary just outside of Kanab. It is a wonderful organization that has made a huge impact on turning shelters into no-kill shelters. They have saved thousands of animals since inception. You can volunteer there and we are hoping to do that some day.
We also kept seeing these strange creatures as we were driving around. What? You paid $20.00 for an ostrich egg? Silly tourists.
At the end of the trip, our great wagon master told us he and his wife were retiring from being wagon master for this trip. (Jack and Rochelle) He asked for volunteers and all hands pointed to Lennard, my husband. Hmmmm … Who is going to do all the work?
Could not ask for more breath taking scenery!
