This lucky boy’s room is decorated with a monkey theme so it only expected the baby shower would follow suite!

The weather in Granby, Colorado is fickle. One week it is warm and the following week it snows! It just happened to snow during our stay. Thankfully, a beautiful blue sky followed.

Protected within the park’s 229 square miles is a dramatic landscape of sculptured canyons and soaring cliffs. Zion is located at the junction of the Colorado Plateau, Great Basin and Mojave Desert provinces. This unique geography and the variety of life zones within the park make Zion significant as a place of unusual plant and animal diversity.

We are currently on a 12-day, 6 state road trip with majority of our stay in the Colorado Rockies. Here are some pictures from our first night in Utah.

St. George’s trademark is its geology — the red bluffs make up the northern part of the city with two peaks covered in lava rock in the city’s center. The northeastern edges of the Mojave Desert are visible to the south. Zion National Park can be seen to the east, and the Pine Valley Mountains loom over the city to the north and northwest. The climate has more in common with the Desert Southwest than the rest of the state, with scorching hot summers and mild, mostly snowless winters.
