Utah, again

My trip to Utah was amazing, just in terms of landscapes.

One day, to Cedar Breaks (previous pictures), one day to Bryce Canyon, and one day to Zion National Park. Unfortunately, we couldn't spend a lot of time in any of them, because my friend was performing most every day at the Utah Shakespeare Festival... and possibly because I am not a big hiker.

But here are some more pictures, from Bryce Canyon (looking down) and Zion (looking up). I cna see why Brigham Young might just have thought he'd found the perfect place to stop.

Sunset at Zion--no touch-ups!
We hit both parks close to sunset, especially Zion, where you can take a free bus through the park getting on and off at various stops. I have more pictures of this place, but it was simply nice to look up (and up and up!) and see people hiking on the top of the peaks.

Oh, and then to go eat dinner in the nearby town with friends.
