Have you been in 4 states at once?

Phil and I decided to go to Southern Utah (And Colorado, New Mexico, and Arizona!) for the break between semesters. It was necessary. And it was warm. And there was so much to do! It also happened to be coming up on Easter Jeep Safari which was very hard on Phil since we didn't even take a 4 wheel drive vehicle. Oh no!! 
 We went to Goblin Valley.
We drove past a really large watermelon on the way so naturally we had to go back so I could get a picture.

 We hiked around Arches and had to stop at the famous Delicate arch of course! Can you see us?

 We found this Jeep made completely out of license plates and wrenches and other weird stuff. It was so cool! It's name was Mother of all Beasts (MOAB.) Phil even let me drive :)
 Hole in the rock! Just south of Moab. Don't ever just drive past this place, it's amazing! There's a gift shop and a whole huge house cut into that rock.
 And then Phil decided we needed to see some ruins, and so we started driving even more south. These cliff dwellings were at Hovenweep National Monument.
 And since we were already so close, I insisted we must make it to the 4 corners! A childhood dream of mine! It was very exciting.
 Phil wasn't quite as enthused. 
 And finally we made it to Mesa Verde in Colorado! Very cool. 
 Cliff Palace. The largest cliff dwelling in North America! 
And I saved this one for last. Hehe

  6. I love the Hole in the Rock store! Wee stop there on our way to Lake Powell. It's magical, meaning it has ice cream. Does that mean Broulims is magical too? Yes, yes it does. And I love your blog! Yea!
