Fall Break Adventures

This week-end we explored Goblin Valley - nature's wonderland. We spent hours hiking and exploring.



I think many of us are nature-starved. Our spirit longs for all things real - sand, sky, mountains and trees.

























Our children created their own fun at our camp site by building rock forts and whole cities in the coral pink sand. That night we slept next to magnificent red rock cliffs and studied the stars in the night sky.





On Friday we hiked the narrow slot canyon eight mile loop trail from Little Wild Horse Canyon to Bell's Canyon. Countless past years of wind and water have created unique sandstone beauty that has to be experienced first hand.

We loved Goblin Valley. I was curious about that hike you took when we were there. We'll have to try it sometime. When we went there was threat of rain and the ranger said it wouldn't be safe. Love those photos!

That looks like so much fun! We'll have to take my boys sometime- they'd be in heaven!
See you soon!
