Driving from Zion Park to the East Exit

This evening we drove out of Zion National Park East Exit for dinner and to get some fuel. The drive was fantastic as it passed through some great scenery. Along the way, we saw numerous warnings, about deer on the road, and this is a serious risk. In fact, I have never seen so many […]

A walk in the woods…. The Grotto and Emerald Pools Trail – Zion National Park, Utah

On the road from Park City to Zion National Park and our slightly eccentric satnav has brought us to Salina, UT where we decided to stop for coffee at Mom’s Cafe. The cafe had some locals in the corner going over town gossip, the pies looked good and the coffee (cheapest I’ve found, $1.25 per […]

One of the problems with a rental car is you are never entirely sure how it works… This morning we awoke to snow for our drive south. No problem, however, the lights on the car did prove to be a bit of a challenge. We wanted them on…. But, as we were driving along they […]

Returning the skis to Aloha Ski Rentals, Park City, Utah

Returned the skis this evening…. So glad I took out the damage insurance…. Normally I don’t bother, but as I was standing in the ski shop looking out the window at the thin snow cover on the slopes I thought it might be wise, and it was. The tech in the shop estimated that it […]
