We just got back from our 30th, anniversary trip out west.
I was determined to help my husband check off some of his bucket list,✔️ all while revisiting childhood memories.
I was born and raised in California till age 11, and dad would always pack us up in the Jeep, camping as we headed east. I say “camped”, but we really roughed it.
We never stayed in a campground. ⛺️
So, I had remembered Zion as being one of my favorite, places ever.
And once again, she did not disappoint!😍
I’ve been experiencing severe back, leg and shoulder pain for almost two years now, and we almost canceled our trip.
But after some recent deaths in the family, that were SO sudden, we talked of how there is no guarantee in life, and every day is precious…and you have to grab every moment when you can.
Make the memories where you can. ❤️
I re-thought it, and just decided to try and medicate myself and try some of the “easier” trails.
This is a picture from one of them.
Just like a postcard, I tell ya.
I wouldn’t say the trails were so “easy” and boy did I pay for it once I tried to sleep, but I’m still glad we now have these memories together.
PS I will try to post more pictures of our trip when I finally get back on eastern time 😴 and my body has some time to recuperate.😜
