Paradise in Zion

For me, Paradise is found in friendships…and these particular friends live on the edge of Zion National Park in Virgin, Utah.

Last week we all walked the dogs by the Virgin River, made red chile enchiladas and scrumptious soups from scratch, watched a flock of Starlings swarm in awesome and endless patterns throughout the sky,

hiked and drove around the magnificient Zion Park,

explored petroglyph caves,

repelled down a couple of huge cliffs,

played Mexican Train by night,
made a gorgeous necklace together for an art trade…
and truly enjoyed life at its fullest.

With an overnight visit with family in Las Vegas at the beginning of the trip,

a visit to the Valley of Fire on the way to Zion,

 a Thai dinner in Flagstaff on the way home, and safe traveling in my zippy little car, Newton,  Mr. E and I felt like we had a perfect vacation.

We found our Paradise and came home relaxed, connected, and refreshed.
