Trip to St George


Short trip to St George...On our way we stopped at "The Ranch".



original fence made of tree trunks.

My husband's Great Great grand-pa was a pioneer.

His Great grand pa was a Homesteader. He decided to go South from Salt lake.
So he build a fence around a lot of land and lived there....
So we stopped there...


Roosters acting like guard dogs on the property....



You can see the original wood and stone...


Shreck potty for real!



Grand-Pa's truck...Still there...



The pond where they used to catch frogs...


The bucket where they used to put the frogs in...



The pig house....


The big tires left behind from the time when they build the roads...


The tree where they used to hang the dead deers....



The last time he was here....He was 15.


Utah is a big desert....
Good bye roosters....now St. George....


On this left exit...Zion's National park...not going there today...


Tomorrow sunny St George...

I love St. George and Zions National Park. I love St. George at sunset when the sun hits the red rock/clay in the mountains and everything seems to be orange all around. What a great, fun (very hot!) place to visit. Enjoy!

My son and his GF went to St. George and they loved it! They found a restaurant where you order the food and then you pay whatever you want...if all you have is $1 then that's all you pay!

Just out of curiousity, I was wondering if your children speak French too:)
