Rick Morgan
Zion National Park

Hal and Lois had suggested we take the Zion shuttle to the top of Zion – the Temple of Sinawava., and ride our bikes all the way back down to the Visitor Center. What a spectacular ride through the amazing Zion Canyon - Beautiful, fun, and an overall memorable experience, stopping at the various sites and geologically diverse formations on our way down.


Jane, Ty, Leslie, Tom, and now joined by Janis (Lievens) & Doug (Snyder) all went for a hike to Angels Landing Trail. After our combined adventurous day, the 10 of us met at the campground took the shuttle to the Zion Lodge for a delicious dinner. On the way to dinner, we were talking with Leslie and Tom, and discovered we all grew up in Lombard, IL, went to the same high school – Glenbard East (although we had graduated 10 years earlier), however, turns out Tom & Leslie knew Rick’s sister Tracey and brother Andy. Lots of reminiscing - Small world!

Arriving at the Visitor Center, we headed back to our campsites and guess what – none of us “experienced campers” brought a flashlight. Thankfully, a very kind man heard our laughing as we were trying to find a path back through brush and streams, came to our rescue with a flashlight, and led us to the road! Lots of and many laughs. Arriving at the campsite, Hal made a campfire; we sat around it enjoying marshmallows and stargazing.
