This last weekend I went on a ward camping trip to Zion's National Park in southern Utah. I remember having been there briefly as a kid on a family trip, but this was my first time back in over 10 years and I'd forgotten how incredibly beautiful it is!

A few shots of Zion's while winding up the canyon road to the Narrows.

At the entrance to The Narrows, the Virigin River fills the floor of the canyon. So if you want to go in, you have to be willing to get a little wet!

The water was a cold, but I fortunately have long legs and this was about as deep as it came on me :)

A view inside the Canyon.
Looking up the wall in the Canyon-so incredible that plants grow there!
I love the look of the sandstone; it looks like it's in motion :)
I had so much fun and wished I had time to do so much more, so I'm definitely planning a return trip for the near future!

July In Pictures

For three weeks in July I was on the USNS Comfort providing health care to the people of Nicaragua, with an ending liberty port in Panama! I met so many amazing people and saw a plethora of beautiful sites. So here's some of my trip in pictures :)
Samuel, my little friend on shore in Nicaragua.

Friends, co-workers, and patients on board!

Yes, I drove the ship and we didn't crash! Then I got really sweaty working out with Rachel.

My rack, the Diablo Rojo bus, Panama Temple, and the Bridge of the Americas.

Our ship the Comfort!

Being constantly surrounded by beauty for 3 weeks definitely spoiled me! With such gorgeous views it was hard to come back :)
