Snow Canyon

Southern Utah is one of my most favorite places to be. It's GORGEOUS! Beautiful red mountains, amazing hiking and not to mention the weather is always right up my alley, 80 degrees+...loveee!

We drove down this past weekend to visit Ty's grandma in St. George. Recently, her hubby passed away and so she's been getting lots of family visits during the weekends. She was thrilled when Ty called and told her we were coming.

I love road trips with Tyler. He's so NOT a "road trip" person & hates being in the car for very long. Especially when he's the driver {i'm the total opposite. i love them!}. So what do I do? Make him drive alllll the way down and force him to tell me stories the whole time. His 2 least favorite things. Ever. He loves me! Don't ya babe :))

We hit up Snow Canyon on Sunday and took Dreydan on his first real hike. He's the best little hiking buddy. Collecting sticks, throwing rocks, begging to us to find dinosaur eggs... seriously, thee best. We had a mini picnic at the bottom of our trail & then started making our way back up. Tyler had to carry Drey for a bit on the way out but after walking almost 2 miles, what 2 year old wouldn't?

{according to drey, that giant hole is a dinosaur cave. he's prob right}


I mean just look at that scenery!!
Love it.
