The first week we arrived in St. George Utah we were visited by Lisa’s brother Jeff and his beautiful wife My Thanh, and their two lovely daughters Ashley and Emily. After his second visit to Zion I asked Jeff what he thought of the park and he said in his rather dry humor ” saw another red rock canyon.” He is a very funny guy and I understood what he meant right away.
However, yesterday our family visited the Temple of Sinawava and completed the riverside walk together. This is not just another red rock canyon but a very jaw-dropping, spiritual place. As the paved trail meandered through the narrow canyon we were visited by deer, squirrels and many beautiful birds. I asked our two small boys what they liked the best about our visit and Theo said he liked seeing the large construction equipment up close in the parking lot near the visitors center and Arthur said he like the “school bus” shuttle rides, I guess beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.
