We did a four day get away this April. Our first stop was in Salt Lake City. Snowed all the way down. We got to meet the newest Grandson...Clarence Vaughn. Margot and Charlie are looking bigger next to him.
The next stop was breakfast at the Jones. Rob was the chef. Floyd and Fletcher were cute as ever and happy with the new Mickey Mouse bouncy balls.
Down the road we stopped to see the Carl Bloch art show at BYU in Provo. It was beautiful and worth the effort to see it.
The drive to St. George was very wintry. A rare April snow storm kept us in bad weather all of the way down. This picture was taken 15 minutes from St. George.
We arrived Friday evening at our Bed and Breakfast which is called the Seven Wives Inn. It is located across the street from Brigham Young's summer home. It was a fun place to stay. We had a room that has an old car theme. Check out the car sitting in our room. It is a huge jetted tub.
One of the lights in the room is an old gasoline pump. See the old phone on the table? It actually works. Cool.
This evening we went to an REO Speedwagon concert that should have been held outside. Due to the really ugly weather we saw it in the conference center. It was a fun concert. A big room full of old hippies.
On Saturday morning we got up and headed out for a ride to Zions National Park. We drove 25 miles up to an entrance. Unfortunately we forgot to gas up before we left St. George. It was a little tense out in the middle of nowhere in a serious snowstorm. Every exit we passed said no services. Yikes. Then in the middle of nowhere there appeared a gas station. Whew.
After we gassed up we headed to the park. Road closed.
So we drove down the road to the southern entrance. It was open and we rode the shuttle into the park. We were about the only ones there and had the shuttle all to ourselves.
The sun tried to peak out of the clouds and fog. We never did see the mountains of Zion Park. Guess we will have to go back.
But we did get to make a snowman in the park with our shuttle driver.
Despite the snow it really was beautiful. We had a really nice weekend getaway.
