Springville, Utah

Ah...we are back in below 7000ft. altitude. This time the altitude really bothered us or else we realized why we were so tired all the time. We have had a wonderful time in AZ and UT but we are here to rest for about 5 days then on to Yellowstone.
It was great being with my family in Flagstaff for two weeks.Every morning my view was a mountain peak covered with snow.
Until I started writing the blog and putting in pictures I had no idea how busy we were in Flagstaff. But when you have an aunt, uncle, five cousins and all their children to see it takes a while. We had a cookout, a cook-in, a family dinner and breakfast. Plus Mary and I had a great time going through old pictures and family history.Then add in all the touristy things we wanted to do....It was so much fun, we cannot wait to go back.
We went to the Grand Canyon for a day;then we took off for Utah to see Zion Canyon and Bryce Canyon. I think we have about "red rock canyoned out"now. But they were all different. Two we were on the rim looking down and one were on the bottom looking up.
And has the weather been strange or what? We have gone from over 100 in Yuma to in the 20's this week. We have seen snow and been snowed on. Some of the view were just spectacular. Trust me, no camera can do the Grand Canyon justice...........nor Highway 14 in Utah.We have seen atelope, buffalo, deer, ravens and cute posing squirrels.
Fantastic...we have tickets to see the Mormon Tabernacle Choir in concert tomorrow!!!!!Excitement.So much for rest.........
More pictures and back-posts to come.
