We figured we'd zip through Zion National Park quickly today since we had spent time camping here not long after we'd married. After thirty years, our memories are obviously failing us. Neither Reg nor I had any recollection of the sights we saw today…beautiful soaring red cliffs around every bend of the road. It was hard to know where to look first.
Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park (Below)
Pictures don't quite capture the true color and size of these amazing sand dunes. The top photo shows a massive dune that several people, both young and old, were sliding down. From the overlook, they appear as little black specs in the sand.
Reg and I hiked to the top — just to say we did — and that's where the bottom photo was taken. The wind was blowing like crazy. We had been warned to hang on to phones, wallets, earrings…anything of value that the monster dune might gobble up!
Beautiful places you are seeing. We went to some of them before we rafted the Colorado River. We are off in our trailer for our first big trip to Bodega Bay. Happy trails,
