Tell me more about that dinner--how was the eggplant cooked? Fried? or some other way? We are going there next week so I need to know these things.

What a beautiful place to visit. I love tunnels. We just rode our bicycles through three tunnels two days ago and it was a blast. I'm glad you are enjoying Zion National Park.

What wonderful country Gaelyn, you really get to know your country from its most beautiful side.

tunning pics, info and territory again Gaelyn. I never get tired of seeing all these beautiful places. That checkerboard is fantastic.

The picture of the first tunnel took my breath away. I would have stopped there and gone no further. WOW!!

I do envy you being able to take so much time off to see these places. I am so glad you are sharing them with us. Thank you.

Thanks for sharing your Zion pic's they bring back my memories of visiting Zion nat'l park. It is a beautiful place.

Wow, Gaelyn, that was a wonderful post. Thanks for sharing. Your photos are amazing. I wish I could've seen you leading the way in the tunnel. I know and love quinua (it's spelt quinoa on the packet I bought in the UK) I did a post on it a month or two ago. It's very healthy and I, as a vegetarian, LOVE it. Is this a long weekend for you? A break? Enjoy!

Thanks for the wonderful journey.

Beautiful photos!

I can't think that I have ever heard of Zion National Park before discovering your blog. It looks like a awesome park with buckets loads, no, tons of spectacular scenery. *taking out the list of places to see if I ever get to do a cross country trip accross the USA*

BPOTW said...

Those are some really great photos! Lots of detail in them.

Ruth said...

Beautiful pictures! Too bad the shoulders on the road were not wider for pulling over. I love quinoa and cook it often. It is pricey for a grain (I buy it in a bulk store) but is very nutritious and cooks in less than 10 minutes

Snap said...

Great post (as usual), Gaelyn. All the different colors in such a stark background. Mother Nature is quite a painter! Your dinner sounded wonderful. I enjoyed the story about the tunnels and being in the lead!

Gaeylyn: Your views of your area always bring a smile to my heart. I love that conical formation.

Lanny said...

The colors are amazing.

What fun stopping traffic!

I must get myself to Utah one of these days.
Friday I went to the Yakima River Canyon--very interesting area.

I really enjoyed these photos and post. I was looking forward to these and the images brought back some nice memories of my brothers climbing some of the rocks when i was a kid.

Silver Fox said...

I especially like the wide-angle view with the cone-shaped knob - and the tunnels. I love old tunnels like these.

Barb said...

Hi Gaelyn,
Catching up with you after a busy family weekend. I really enjoyed your geological and pictorial tour of Zion. I liked the Canyon shot where you caught a camper midway down - gave a good perspective of the canyon's depth. I have eaten Quinua - I think it's the grain containing the most protein. I look forward to your Narrows photos.

Carver said...

Wonderful post. I enjoy your shots and narrative so much.

Wolynski said...

Wow, amazing. I drove through Utah once - unreal - quite a unique landscape. Beautiful photos.

Pyatshaw said...

You have the most enviable life--one I would have loved to have but I really am quite content with what I have.................(I think!!!)

Russ said...

Such beautiful country!

Louise said...

The views on that road in are amazing. But $15??? Wow that's a lot!
