Continuing our one vacation since we left California. . . .(Ugh) we stayed up the Colorado River Valley, not far from a geologic feature known as the Fisher Towers (below). Hiking around them revealed beautiful wildflowers in bloom, as I hope a couple of pictures here will attest.
Here and below are pictures of the place where we stayed, Red Cliff Lodge. It was niiiiiice! We have also stayed at Sorrell River ranch in this area, and both are just excellent, and so peaceful. The Red Cliff lodge is right on a bend in the Colorado river, as this late sunset photo shows.
We hiked in Arches National Park quite a bit, particularly to Sand Dune Arch for da boys, and to nearby Broken Arch. There were great flowers out all along the latter hike, and Kate and I had fun taking photos of them.
