Slowly working through all the photos.
We stayed in Vegas for one night, as you will have seen in the previous post, and the next day left to go north.
Where the main road goes through a narrow pass, it started to get cold, and then it got colder, and it started raining, and it got colder still.
Until we got to Springdale, Utah, where they had torn up the entire (and single) main road and it was wet and misty and the weather couldn’t make up its mind whether it wanted to rain or snow.
There was only one other room occupied at the Bumbleberry Inn (cool name), and it was warm and dry.
Driving down that unpaved muddy main road to do such mundane things as buying some groceries, we put some serious red mud over the car.
So yeah, the weather was kinda rubbish, but the next day we woke up to a bright clear sky. Time for Zion National Park! Apparently it gets really, like, really busy here in summer, but during December and January, you can drive into the canyon.
Funnily enough, the US government had decided to throw a hissyfit in the form of a shutdown, and there was no one at the gates to take our money.
Anyway, Zion National Park is pretty. And also very, very cold down in that dark canyon.
