Presidents Day in Zion

Today was GORGEOUS!  We all went up to the Zion lodge and had lunch on the lawn and played for an hour or so.  We were practically the only ones in the entire park.  It was the perfect day to go.  We had the entire lawn to ourselves for soccer, football, Frisbee and whiffleball and to just lay on the blankets and soak up the sun.

JoEllen was taking a picture of the 3 of us and Matty kept getting in the way.
Mandy had to finally help her out.

All that for this.  It was supposed to be more for the cool tree and mountainside.

Here are all the kids getting ready to hike.

  We had hoped to hike to the top of the Emerald pools but it was closed at the lower pools because of falling ice.  So, decided to hike up to the Canyon Overlook at the top of the Mt Carmel tunnel and these are the incredible pictures we took.

Not a cloud in the sky!


 The kids had fun climbing over everything and the parents all had anxiety because of the cliffs and sudden drop offs.  Probably not one we'll do again soon but fun still the same.  The weather was impeccable.  Definitely a great was to spend President's Day.
