Great Southern Land

As a last hurrah for some of our most beloved places in Utah, we spent Easter weekend in St. George.  And there was definitely a sense of finality - everyone felt it.  Not that we're never coming back again.  But a return trip isn't in the near future. 

We didn't pause much.  The kids all requested their favorite slot canyon one last time.  We tried to hike in Zions, but the line was super crazy with zero parking.  So we opted for stops at gem/rock stores and more biking.   

The kites were very cool - an early Easter present.  The boys and I spotted the open green lawn on our first bike ride and the wind picked up right before we got there.  The view was magnificent!  You couldn't ask for a better background of red cliffs and the St. George temple.  Perfect.  

This move is killing our spring plans for Moab/Arches and our September camping plans for Capitol Reef.  Alas.  We'll compensate by exploring the Sawtooth Mountain Range, the Salmon River and the Trail of Hiawatha.  My legs are already burning in anticipation.

The goal this summer is to get Bubbs off training wheels.  

We're coming Idaho...

I'm so glad you got to go one more time. Sounds like a lovely weekend. Where did you get the fun kites? Also, I used to sing Grandma's feather bed with my Mom on the guitar when I was little. Love that song.
