Amazing trip to Zion...

Here is just a few of the many photos from our trip to Zion this
last weekend.  I love taking nature photos and a unexpected
snowstorm on friday dumped lots of snow our way and it was
just amazing to take pictures of and surprisingly it wasn't really
very cold even though it looks that way. 

This is the hike at the top of the valley.  It runs along the river for about
a mile and a half and then you can go into the narrows.  We 
are going to be back in summer to hike through the water for that :)

I just love the way the red rocks, snow and blue sky look together
for this one.  It is such a cool place because as the sun moves then
the lights change and everything is just more gorgeous!!
I have this same shot in fall too looking up to the top of the valley
and it looks so different in the snow.
This photo is at the top of the valley on the other side of the tunnel.
We drove through to see this fabulous winter wonderland and lots
of waterfalls on the rocks.  The flakes were huge too and later 
that day it turned into little tiny hail balls and it looked like the inside
of a bean bag chair.  It was just so breathtaking for a Cali girl :)
Over at the Bellagio in Vegas they have a huge garden inside
and at the back of the front desk and the theme this time 
was butterflies.  They had all my most favorite flowers everywhere 
by the 100's and a green house filled with gorgeous butterflies everywhere. 
 It smelled so good from all the flowers that were everywhere.
This picture is the view from our room in the Paris.  We got an
upgrade and I guess the women at the desk liked us because
this was just amazing!!  We even got to watch the fountains
of the Bellagio from our room and the weather was alot warmer
than in Zion.  It was a super awesome, restfull, wonderful trip!


  1. I like 2 first photo a lot! Will you scrap them? I would!

  2. Your pictures are just beautiful. I think my most favourite memory of Vegas was the fountain show at the Bellagio at night time. Glad you had such a nice, well deserved vacation!

  3. I just had to track down your Zion post to see the photos. Absolutely stunning! I'm hoping to go maybe this fall, but probably next spring. The hotel photos are fabulous, too! So glad to have met you and love that we have hiking in common!
