East of Zion

I want to thank our lovely family and friends for all your great comments.  I appreciate all input.  If you ever have any questions I will certainly do my best to answer them.

We stayed in the little town of Kanab  ( A whopping 43 miles east of Zion) for a couple of days to get caught up on inside cleaning and laundry.  We also managed a nice little hike into a sandstone slot canyon.  These are the kind of slots we like rather than the casino type.  A lot cheaper too!

We wanted to hike a slot canyon called “The Wave”.  It was on a lottery system that Dean signed up for two days in a row. Only 10 numbers are picked each day out of 40 to 50.  No luck but we found another very nice canyon to explore.

Dax sent me this picture from one of his trips to Zion.  I always thought how cool it looked. The next picture is a mom interpretation.  Not so cool but hey I am a geezerette.

Our next stop was Page, Arizona, just across the Utah border.  These pictures are of Glen Canyon Dam. The red rock and blue water of the Colorado River are a really pretty contrast.

We walked along the edge of the cliff.  It was a 1000 ft drop off.  Years ago I would have stood a lot closer to the edge but caution is finally catching up with me. I asked Dean to look like a professional climber and I think he did a pretty good job.

Moving on tomorrow…….
