Hiking in Color Country

My dad taught me to hike. Though he is still quite mobile and active at 74,  he is no longer my hiking partner and prefers an ATV/side by side. I enjoy both. ATVs are quick and fun ways to experience things and on foot is a sweaty slower more communing with nature way to enjoy the earth. A healthy body is the biggest blessing in the world because you can use it to move around some pretty awesome places and do some amazing things. I like to move my body to go hiking. It requires no skill and only as much effort as you want to exert.

Happy Hiker… For the record, she didn’t want to go!

The boy scout/cousin in the back declared early on: I love this hike!  The other 2 were happy cause he came and they didn’t have to just go with me.

This is the end of the trail or the beginning. My first casa is very close to here.

I was not fond of crossing that thing. Zion National Park: Overlook Trail

This is the Cedar City “C” trailhead. Many American towns preferably those with some elevation have a letter on the mountainside. This “C” represents the high school I graduated from. Though I didn’t actually photograph the large “C”, I did participate in “whitewashing” it many moons ago. I have biked and hiked this trail. My father has also cross country skied it, but he said it was a scary endeavor.
