Every once in a while, I need a vacation that is not based on eating. An anti-food vacation. Green Valley Spa in St. George, UT was a great place for this type of getaway. The surroundings are breathtaking, the beds are like sleeping in a cloud, and the hiking is strenuous. Not camping, mind you, hiking. These pictues don't need a narration; they were all taken in Zion National Park- my first National park!
You might be wondering who took that last picture. We met an awesome couple on our trip to Zion, Lauren and Greg- and Greg loved posing pictures. He would give the camera to his wife and say things like "ok sweetie, take an action shot of me running up that hill." Very cute.
So at this point on the way down the mountain (we did something called the West Ridge Trail) Greg took our camera and we walked down in front of him. It was only after we were at this point on the mountain that we realized we should have kept our camera and taken pictures of him up on the ledge! Then we could have just traded email. Oops. Well, we got some good shots anyways.
