Spring Break 2016: Southern Utah Adventures!

For Spring Break this year, T Money and I joined my in laws to explore South (east) Utah. While driving throughout what seemed like half of Utah, I was simply amazed at all of the beauty that it entailed. Utah, alone, has FIVE National Parks and numerous National Monuments. I loved growing up in the Northwest, but the longer that I live in this state, the more I love exploring it and finding all of the fun adventures and places! There is so much to do here. We took just a few days to road trip to Fillmore to see a hidden secret of the Lava Tubes. I didn't even know these things existed! They were very cool. Except for the fact that I completely sprained my ankle on our first day on vacation. Mind you, I did not sprain my ankle going DOWN the steep lava rocks, but on flat ground once inside the caves. I am so clumsy sometimes. Let's just say that it was an ongoing joke throughout the entire trip. Just what I want, to be made fun of for my clumsiness ;). We hiked and explored Bryce Canyon National Park from there. Hiking that canyon at a 10,000 feet elevation and a sprained ankle was real fun. Either way, it was beautiful. It was on my bucket list to hike it, so I was stoked to see it's beauty. Lastly, we drive 30 minutes over to the National Monument of the Grand Staircase. This a HUGE National Monument--one we could have stayed in just itself for four days and still not see everything. Either way, it was fun to still see some beautiful things for a bit. 
We came home and I organized Tanner's office, saw friends, did more local hikes, and relaxed. It's been hard to be back at work this week (my students are struggling hard core!), but I only have a three day week (today is my Friday), so I'm not complaining too much. :)

My brother in law bought this toy dinosaur and took pictures with it the entire time. It was awesome! 

Best picture of the trip right there. I was explaining to Tanner that I did not have body odor and was checking to make sure that I was right. I wasn't. Hahahaha.
