the skies were seriously nothing like this when I was young.

We did way less the last day, mostly involving driving and taking some pictures at some truly gorgeous places. But there were enough that I wanted to break it up a bit 🙂 These photos, by the way, look seriously better with some color management. So get on that.

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

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.
