I left my heart in Zion

Sometimes the best cure for feeling feelings and overthinking things is an adventure, so I planned one.

Days 2 & 3: Zion, my heart. 

There are so many trails within the park, honestly I could hike there for months without retracing my steps. Sadly, our time was limited. In the end we decided on Canyon Overlook, Emerald Pools (Upper and Lower), and Hidden Canyon. 

We made a side trip to Sand Hollow State Park, not too far south of Zion. A friend recommended that we stop there if we had the time, and I am so glad that we did. It's a little place that packs a big punch. 

Day 4: Road trip to Valley of Fire, Nevada

After a lifetime in Florida, I wasn't impressed with how hot it was inside the park. But then, it's a desert. So there you go. Temperatures aside, this place is beautiful. 

Photographic proof that I was indeed on this adventure - iPhone selfie with my husband. Best adventure partner EVER. 

I am still in a awe of how beautiful this part of the country is. We barely scratched the surface, and I can't wait to go back.
