Just in case you are trying to orient yourself...
This picture was taken from the red rocks Northish of the St. George Temple.
I think it's called Pioneer Park.
I never thought that you could find so many hikes, trails, nooks & crannies so close to downtown SG
Cole was just climbing around these rocks like a lizard. Kinda freaking me out.
Once we discovered how much space was out there to be discovered, we pulled out the cell phone/GPS and looked up some caches.
Had to take a picture of myself to document my participation. I love how you can see my arm in the reflection.
Kelli & Sierra
Cole & Rick were looking for another cache...the clue said that it was in a nook & cranny.
There were lots of nooks & crannies.
Then we had to find our way back down. We decided to follow this fault line.
We were a little thirsty, so we found this pond. It was mostly clear, so we took a big drink.
Not. We had to listen to the giardia story again.
We won't be drinking stagnant, green, pond water, EVER!
This was a fun hiking area. Easy for the kids (not so easy for me, just 24 hours after running the 1/2 marathon, my toes were not yet working correctly). Lots of trails. Lots of cool rock formations. Close to the parking area.
