Zion National Park
John and I got to go on an amazing little adventure to Utah recently. It was only a couple days, but it was awesome. We started out in St. Louis with 2 1/2 hour delay at the airport due to severe thunderstorms in the area. So, we were late getting to Las Vegas where we planned to drive from to get to the park. However, there was a winter storm advisory up for the Utah area, so we stayed the night in Las Vegas and headed up the next morning. It's a gorgeous drive entering the mountains. As you approach the park, there is a little one road town you enter towered by mountains on either side. We stayed at the Desert Pearl Hotel and will stay there again...loved it. It snowed while we were there, so I was able to capture some pretty amazing shots of winter in the mountains even though we had planned on it being in the 60's! We only had 2 1/2 days to visit, day three finally broke out the sun and started to warm up a bit. If you are interested, you can view the whole set here. It was so hard choosing which ones to use on the blog!
