Getting to the top of Observation Point

Glenn invited everybody up to Zion for his birthday from March 1-3, 2008. I drove up with Ryan, Danny and Erin, and we got ourselves to the cabins of the Zion Mountain Ranch, which is just outside of the park’s east entrance. They have buffalo there, which was really pretty cool.

We played games both that first night and the next night, and during the days most of us went and played outdoors a bit.

Thanksgiving 2007 in Utah – Part 1/2 – Zion National Park

June 7th, 2009 by

Jenn convinced me to go out to Utah and check out some national parks over Thanksgiving weekend, 2007. We were planning to hit up Zion, Bryce, and Capitol Reef but we only ended up making it to the first two.

Jenn and myself and her dad drove out from Pasadena on the evening of November 20, 2007. We got as far as Las Vegas, and staked out in a motel. We got a pretty early start the next morning and poured a mostly sleeping Jenn into the car, and headed off towards Utah. My first time! Well, other than a layover in SLC, which just doesn’t count.

We got to the park around noon on the 21st, and set up camp at Watchman Campground, conveniently open year round. Anyway, I’d like to preface this with the simple fact that Zion is gorgeous.
