Here are some fun pics of Ashley and I climbing up in Rock Canyon. A little cold, but that was nice because no one else was there!

When I am not changing diapers, and doing some sort of other domestic task (insert picture of Husband rolling eyes here), I love to sew and knit. Here, I’ll prove it.
So Ashley and I, this time with Baby in tow, went to Zion for the weekend. Crazy nice weather, baby enjoyed it thoroughly. Way too many tourists, but we’re used to that…. oh, and the shuttle bus really smelled bad. At one point Ashley, while sitting on the shuttle bus, spilled her water on her seat. It started to smell like something died, and when we got off the bus her skirt was completely covered in some mysterious brown liquid that apparently reconstituted itself after adding water. I think it must have been a combination of German man sweat, and bum.
We had a great dinner at the Bit and Spur and baby got a little tan.
Baby on the Shuttle buss…no strollers allowed.
Some pictures of me and Ashley’s trip to Coyote gulch. This was quite an adventure complete with danger and horror. But a great time was had for all, and we will go again……maybe.
At the trail head.
first night on the rim. it was too windy to set up a tent, or cook our dinner for that matter.
our second camp. we were visited this night by several canyon creatures. All I can tell you is that 2 yellow eyes peeking under your tent flap at 3am is a little unnerving.
this place is just crazy pretty.
So to get out of the canyon you have to climb this 45 degree cliff that is about 100 ft. Not that big of a deal, but this family from Salt Lake was scared to death, I sat at the top and belayed them up while Ashley was at the bottom putting them in harnesses and convincing them that they were not going to die. Since we didnt plan on this, we ran out of water, and got CRAZY sun burnt sitting on that cliff for 3 hours. But they were very grateful and shared their water while we made the 3 mile hike back to our cars. We got back waaaaay later than we planned, so of course we were presumed dead.
We stayed that night at the Calf Creek Falls campground, and came home the next morning. We did however have some serious car trouble in Mona and Ryan was quite unhappy about coming to rescue us.
Anyway, we are alive and had a great time!
