Back to Zion
We’ve finally moved on from our stay in Saint George. We had other plans for where to wander next, but a late winter cold front dropped snow to the valley and convinced us that we should avoid the high routes east. Instead we booked two nights in Springdale, the small town at the entrance to Zion National Park, and had the rare experience of seeing Zion in the snow.
If we were tough like Greg we could have broken out the bikes and ridden them through the park in the snow. But we aren’t so tough, and the bikes were buried under all our other junk anyway. So we walked, which was as awesome as you can imagine. Colorful too!

It’s nice that you guys got to enjoy just a little bit of snow this winter.
Yes, we’re glad of the experience so we can relate to you northerners better. This was enough though. We feel enlightened now.
Those of stunning pictures of Zion in snow!
Zion in the snow. Beautiful.
The desert in winter! Generally I go there to escape it. Now, thanks to your pictures, I want to go there to SEE it.
It certainly gives a different feel and mood, but that is so beautiful, too. It would be disappointing if it were you only days to see the park, but when you’ve had that chance, the texture and atmosphere of the snow is a gorgeous change, too.
I feel the same way. It would be disappointing if this were the only experience,but this was perfect.
Good thing we shortened the length limit on comments or you’d need to find a few more words.
