Erin and I took an impulse trip to Zion National Park in Utah. I've got to hand it to her, without my help she planned the entire three day trip with only a day's notice. She's an ambitious little firecracker ain't she?
We caught the first flight out of Chicago to Las Vegas and rented a car, drove through the mountains past Area 51 (oooh yeah!), and into the national park.
My favorite part of the hike was of course the awesome photo get away spots we found off the beaten path.
The beaten path wasn't all that bad though...
Erin was super excited about swimming in the river near the end of the trail. As cold as the water was, we were tired enough to give it a shot.
I couldn't resist snapping a few photos with my IPhone along the way...
All in all we had an awesome time.
We even found time to stop by the pawn shop in History Channel's Pawn Stars, lose some money on the Vegas strip, and even grab a bite to eat at the Sinatra restaurant at the Encore hotel. Too much class for me but dang that Sinatra could wear the heck out of a suit and top hat.
