Utah, you are gorgeous

I’m sitting here in a dark hotel room blogging while Mike sleeps. Lets be real, I had next to zero intention to blog but I can’t sleep right now, so why not? Heck, I have red eyes from getting zero sleep last night and I’m pretty sure a few new wrinkles on my face from smiling so much. But dang it, life is so good.

Our flight was delayed, but as soon as we landed into Vegas, we got on the road. We stopped into Cracker Barrel for dinner at 9pm (yah grandma goes wild on vacay) and now I am mad Cali doesn’t have one. Seriously LOVED that place!

Anyway we decided to skip Zion National Park in lieu of spending more time in CO and the Grand Canyon. We made a deal that it is the first thing on our list the next time we fly into Vegas. Annnnnnd now Mike is roped into going back to Vegas. Muhahahaha.

After dinner we drove to Richfield, Utah where a hotel took us in for the night. And by that I mean we had the last room available right by the front door and next to the breakfast room so we could hear every conversation. Ha! We were there a total of 7 hours and back on the road to Moab and Arches, with a few lookout stops along the way.

There is so much I want to share with you guys, but I don’t want to bore you either, so I’ll leave you with some pics I pulled off the camera from Arches. It was truly one of the most incredible experiences of my life. If you ever get the chance to visit, go for it!
