Anniversary Trip

This weekend was our 1st wedding anniversary (May 12th if you've forgotten...). To celebrate, we took a long weekend down to St. George and went hiking in Zion National Park.

If you haven't visited Zion's before, we strongly recommend it. We picked a good time of year to go. In August, it's way too hot. It got up to 97 degrees while we were there! Make sure to drink lots of water.

We went on a couple of different hikes, including one called Emerald Pools, which is a series of 3
levels of pools and waterfalls. It was about 3 miles round trip, with a bit of uphill climbing. We also went to a place called weeping rock. At weeping rock, water is spouting from the side of the mountain. It isn't a stream, or anything, just water that has been soaked into the sandstone and has taken a long time (they said 1200 years) to get down to the bottom of the layer of sandstone. It's hard to tell from the picture, but it is pretty neat.
















All in all, it was a great weekend. It was nice to get away and spend time together. Now that we are back home, it is time to get started on home projects, check later posts for updates in that department.
