Memorial Weekend 2008

This weekend was so much fun. We went to St.George area, did some hiking in Zions,West Rim. We added a couple miles to our already 13.5 mile hike because snow had made the road so muddy.It was an adventure for sure. Steep climbs up and down, beautiful views, interesting and not so interesting conversation,entertaing no doubt. The hike intersected with Angels Landing and home stretch was just a few switch backs away, or so I thought. I could think of a lot more names for the switch backs known as Walters Wiggles but since this is a family blog I will restrain myself. I have never been so sore after a hike but would totally do it again. Thanks to Dave for setting it up and keeping us entertained with all sorts of tales and "would you rathers". We also went into Snow Canyon for some climbing rocks, looking for lizards and playing in the sand... oh the memories. What a great family that can have good times together. Love you all... I guess we'll see after our bus tour:)

Yeah I'm not so sure you will feel the same way about our crazy family after riding in the bus for a week long.

I totally remember those weird shaped buildings. Weren't they fat farms?

Did you catch any lizards or tad poles?

I'm so jealous.

thank you for the pictures of the fat farms! Oh, remember those places? We had such good times down there at Snow Canyon. I can't believe it was snowing down there. Craziness. Sounds like such a fun trip though.
