The Zion trip was so fabulous that I can't even figure out how to write coherently about it. I'll get some scans of sketches up in the next few days, but in the meantime, a few pics from a weary traveler.
Wednesday we early arrivals took a walk along the Virgin River in Springdale to get our desert legs.
Sandy, Beki and Libby looking over the river.
Later that day we moved the whole clan to cabins above the east side of the park. Seventeen of us gathered to hike and draw and visit and exclaim over our extreme good fortune. The weather was stunningly perfect the entire week.
Hike to Observation Point. It's a long way down. I didn't get too close to the edge, but I have a couple of drawings from this day that I'll put up later.
I like slot canyons better. No where to go but up from here.
Indeed, the weather was perfect, but that was yesterday in Utah.
THIS was back home at 8:00 this morning. Snow. All day. Still snowing at 10pm. So much for my new tan!
