So, Where’ve You Been?

Our boots, showing the red dust from Zion's National ParkIt’s been a little quiet around here this past week.

In celebration of 28 years of marriage, Cathy and I took off on Southwestern vacation; revisiting two of our favorite parks and making our first visit to another.

We hiked the familiar Rim Trail at Bryce Canyon, took in the Emerald Pools and explored Watchman in Zions, and visited the North Rim of the Grand Canyon.  We love the rugged, surreal scenery of the southwest and relished the opportunity to get out in it again.

Along  the way, God watched out for us — despite the fact that it rained every day, it never rained on us.  When our Jeep’s battery died, we were stopped at an actual gas station which actually did service.  So, we had a crisis-free vacation which gave us a chance to relax.

We’ll leave you with a few of our favorite pictures from the trip.
