Guess what!? ANOTHER birthday post! I told you, I’d be celebrating all month. 😉
The day after my birthday, Derek took me to Zion for the night. It was so fun to have a little weekend getaway, take in my favorite views, and spend some alone time with him. We drove up on Saturday afternoon, and hiked one of my favorite hikes, “Zion Canyon Overlook.” Derek had never done this hike before. It was overcast, but the weather was perfect!
We even saw some mountain goats!
We ate dinner at “The Spotted Dog” that night, and stayed at the Flannigan’s Inn.
The next morning, we woke up to rain. I have been to Zion way too many times to count, but to see it covered in dark clouds and rain, was breath taking.
We had breakfast at Oscar’s, and enjoyed our quick, rainy, trip home.
One of my favorite things about Zion, is listening to other people’s conversations. They talk about how beautiful it is here, how far they traveled from to see these beautiful mountains, how they wished they lived closer, and how they don’t want to go home.
I am so thankful to live so close to a National Park, and one of the most beautiful ones. I will never take it for granted. Our weekend getaway was the perfect end to my birthday week, all thanks to my handsome husband.
Onto the next adventure, Wren
PS- Video of our hike coming soon!
