More on Today

That epic picture in the last post was taken looking back towards St. George from the Arizona Strip. We drove into the strip a ways today to see the sights and get a better feel for the terrain between St. George and the Grand Canyon Parashant National Monument.

We took the truck, which was a good plan considering many of the backcountry BLM roads we were on had significant ruts and dips going through washes and drainages.

After spending the afternoon south of town, we headed just north of the house to Snow Canyon State Park for a hike.

Besides the abundant scenery to take in, we found tiny lizards and even tinier frogs (toads?) that were less than an inch long. We also spend some time observing cacti.

I was intrigued to see that the event we would have been at this weekend had the NASCAR Crocs tour not been canceled is having some issues with rain. Good thing it ended up being an off weekend.
