My husband Dave is playing on a Manitoba team in an international softball tournament in St. George Utah. A number of the players’ partners have accompained them to Utah and although we are always at the diamond to cheer our team on, we have been been going for hikes each morning before their games begin. Our first hike was down the Johnson Trail just outside Snow Canyon National Park.
It was a chilly morning but the sun lit up our surroundings in a beautiful light. We saw lots of intriguing rock formations like this turtle head and…….. this unique face A woman we met just before we started the hike told us not to miss the impressive arch halfway down the trail
I thought this three rock formation was just as interesting as the big arch. It created a little arch of its own.We stopped to watch this bug stick its head upside down in the sand The trail ended in a pool surrounded by towering red rocks. It was so quiet there I thought I was in a cathedral. Our hike provided a beautiful start to the day. We spent the rest of it watching our partners play ball. Our hike the second morning was down the Quarry Trail. It got its name from the fact that the local Mormon community quarried rock there to build their temple in St. George. The weather was much warmer on this hike. We had beautiful views, got some invigorating exercise and enjoyed chatting with each other. I am looking forward to more hikes with this congenial group and am so glad they are here in Utah with me.
