hiking in Kolob

One good thing about this town is that we are surrounded by national/state parks! We bought our first annual national park pass and I'm kind of excited about that! I hope that we will take advantage of the natural beauty we are surrounded with, once the warm weather is here to stay!

the scenic drive
the view
the trail
the rock that he's standing on totally reminded me of the Simba rock- from Lion King? anyway, I tried to talk Eric into crawling up the rock and "roaring" into the wild but he wouldn't do it... ha ha!
we had red cliffs on one side, and this view on the other. amazing.
my face has mistaken me with a 14yr old. won't. stop. breaking out. oh! that's Kolob in the background.

Hopefully our next hike will be in Zion national park! Hiking is about to become our new favorite hobby (whether you like it or not, Eric!) :)

So... I read your post title, and all I could think was,
"If you could hike to Kolob," sung to the tune of if you could hie to Kolob.
Good story.
Anyway, it looks amazing, and I am so jealous of all those beautiful mountains!

haha, my husband would also look at me like I'm a crazy person if I asked him to pose like a lion. His idea of posing is a raised eyebrow.
