Hank – After leaving the hotel we drove to a trailhead for the Red Hills Parkway Trail. It’s a paved trail that parallels the roadway. We stopped by the St George Pioneer Park where you can clamber over all sorts of sandstone formations that overlook the city.
After the ride we had a quick lunch and then drove to Page, AZ. It was a very scenic drive. Just as we arrived in Page we hit the Glen Canyon Dam. We had to stop and check that out. From there we went to the Page Lake Powell Campground and got a tent site. This is a very nice campground. The WiFi isn’t always up to speed but the free coffee and tea in the morning is a nice touch.
Kathy – Today we rode in St. George, Utah – Our 38th state! It was in the high 50’s and sunny weather. We rode along the bluff which was gorgeous. We had some climbing off and on but it wasn’t too bad since the bikes were pretty light without the pannier bags (they were in the rental van). As we traveled about we had stunning views of the city, red rock landscapes, snow capped mountains, and desert browns and grays mountains. Every turn we made allowed us to view many different types of spectacular landscapes. Utah does not disappoint. It’s just outstanding, and an amazing place to visit.
I keep thinking I have seen some of the most beautiful places, and then we travel to another state and I find even more beauty. I can’t say which state is the most stunning because they each have amazing places and beautiful sights to enjoy.
During our ride I found a great location to spread my Utah packet of flower seeds. On a bluff near the bicycle trail with a view of the city below. I really hope they bloom. It is so beautiful here that if they do bloom they will just add another little touch of sweetness to this magnificent place.
We then drove to Page, Arizona. Again, our views during the drive continued to be breathtaking. The Glen Canyon Dam which is near Page, Arizona is huge. I just can’t tell you enough at how beautiful this part of the country is. Hank and I definitely want to come back to the area to do some hiking in the future. Hopefully I can talk him into purchasing a small RV and then spend a few of the winter months each year in the warm south. I’m pretty sold on this whole snowbird thing. Let see how it works out in the future. Regardless, no doubt we will be back to this beautiful land to explore it more so.
We are camping tonight in Page, Arizona surrounded by so many beautiful red rock formations. It is such a lovely place. Feeling pretty grateful right now. 💗
