Cross Country Road Trip, Day 3

It was another stunning day. Seriously, I can’t get over the beauty of this area! It sounds trite, I know, but every time we’ve seen something beautiful, something else comes along that seems even prettier!

We took a short detour early on today’s trip to drive through Zion National Park:

And then spent the afternoon into evening traveling across Utah, which has some of the most breathtaking views I’ve ever seen:

It was a day of wonder … we’ve just pulled into Grand Junction, and I think will be sleeping well tonight! Tomorrow, Denver (and hopefully a visit to Fancy Tiger Crafts) and some Colorado driving!

Thanks as always for stopping by and the kind comments you’ve been leaving! My service has been patchy, but whenever I’ve come into a reception, they’ve been such a pleasure to read!

Cross Country Road Trip, Day 2

After a late start yesterday, we arrived in St. George, Utah late last night, having made a very brief stop in Vegas (where we had donuts and a coffee — very Saturday in Vegas, I think!)  Today, we drove to the Grand Canyon’s Northern Rim.

I’ve never been to Utah or Arizona,  and really, the beauty here beggars description.  We had a beautiful drive as the red rocks of southern Utah were replaced with pines and meadows of northern Arizona until we reached the Canyon.  Find Your Fade has been the perfect car knitting as it doesn’t prevent me looking out the window!

I sneaked a few rows in at the Canyon …

Then a storm rolled in …

And we retreated to the big lodge, where we had a beer (and I knit some more)

Tonight, we’re back in St. George … tomorrow we make for Colorado!
