My Vacation to the Red Rocks

At long last, here are the pictures I took a few weeks ago when I went to St. George and spent some time at the Red Cliffs Recreation area. The place is a natural playground.

Behold... a visual feast!This is a view of the main canyon from above. As you can see there is a small stream running below . It really makes the canyon look much prettier than in the late summer (when there is no water.)

Wildflowers were everywhere! I like how this flower appears to float in midair.

Of course you've always got cactus in the desert.

I've named this plant "Firecrackus Rojus"

Mmm, that pollen looks good.

More flowers.

What makes this picture amazing is the crowd of people nestled into the bottom of the picture. It really gives you a good indication of how large the rocks are!

Somebody lost a water shoe and now it sits lonely in the bottom of the canyon.

I should be on the left side of the frame. It would have been so much more compositionally sound.

This ravine literally comes out of nowhere and is 60 to 80 feet deep! Creepy!

Mom, Dad, and the Grandparents are all checking out some stuff while browsing lots.

Grandpa Jim, Me, and Grandma Shirley. They are AMAZING grandparents. It's always fun to see them.

Well, that's that. I'd write more, but I gotta get to bed. I'm up in 6.5 hours to go to the gym.




  1. Bar- we need to plan a weekend camping trip down there! I want to hike and camp a ton this summer!

    Grandma and Grandpa are the best! And Grandma is so pretty! I need to visit them soon!

  2. Bar,
    1. why dont you photoshop the "compositionally disgusting pic?
    2. Is that gorge at Red Rocks or the "lot"?
