Mormonville - Day 6

September 11th - a big drive today.  We toured Welfare Square in Salt Lake City before heading California way. I had never been there before.  It was my favorite part of our trip.  Later in the day, after eating in a little diner in Beaver, we took the scenic route up the mountain.

Cedar Breaks

I was calling it the mini Grand Canyon.

Lisa, conquering her fear of heights. 

Freezing cold on the top of the mountain.
Burning hot at the bottom.

“Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature -- the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter.”― Rachel CarsonSilent Spring

Unbelievable scenery

I thought these views were a top highlight.


Lisa in true form was all about the animals -

and dog alike.

We finally arrived in Hurricane, Utah and stayed with the Thorley's for the night.
This was the view from their home.
We didn't take any pictures of our hospitable hosts.
They made our trip even more enjoyable.
We watched a movie that night, visited, had some snacks,
and not to mention - a great night sleep.
Thanks to the Thorley's!.
