Zion National Park

Today we visited Zion National Park. I am really blown away by Utah's natural beauty.

Yes, I hike in dresses and lipstick sometimes. In fact, I want to organize a "dresses only" hike sometime soon. (All genders welcome, but dresses will be required attire.)

  1. I LOVED Zion! It was so beautiful. At one of the shops there was an art gallery featuring the work of Arlene Braithwaite, you should check out her works when you can. She features stunning nature scenes coupled with biting commentary on human nature and society.

    Bryce Canyon is also really incredible if you have time to visit! It's SO worth it. I love national parks so much, my dad and I went on a huge road trip out west one summer and visited all that we could. Sadly we didn't make it to White Sands!

  2. unfortunately we do not, but I bought a year round pass to all
    national recreation sites, so hopefully within the year (or at least
    in my lifetime)

  3. Zion is, hands down, one of my favorite places in the country! A weekend trip there was the first "surprise" I coordinated for my now husband (then boyfriend). Amazing.
