Trip to Cedar City

Happy Tuesday, everyone!!

How was your guys’ weekend? I hope it was good, and your Monday wasn’t horrible!

Josh and I are back from our mini vacation from Cedar City… and we are glad to be back home, but we will be going back soon! After all, in little Utah over here, Cedar City is home to SUU (Southern Utah University) and that means… it is the home of the Shakespeare Festival! We are hoping to be back there at least in Fall!!! I am dedicating today’s blog to the adventures we had in Cedar! Without anymore delay, here it is!

We started our trip the day after getting there, heading up to the mountains. It was so cool and the air was fresh, it felt like I was at home. Cedar was really hot, so being up there was refreshing. The top picture was taken overlooking Navajo Lake, where we saw two Bald Eagles flying over the water! The bottom picture is on a ledge of the mountain where you can see Zion’s National Park! How cool is that??

We spent a lot of time in town. We walked the grounds of Southern Utah University, made our way to a small used book store, and to 1 stop shop comic book store. To finish off our adventure, we went out to the desert hills, where a shooting range lays hidden away from civilization.

The bottom right corner photo was taken on top of Cedar Mountain where there are fields of Lava Flows! Fun fact: Navajo Lake, Utah is there as a result of a volcanic explosion, and is resting on a bed of limestone! It is also connected to Cascade Falls!

We are falling more and more in love with Cedar, I wouldn’t be surprised if one day we move there!

Have you ever been to Cedar City?

We look forward to our next adventure down in the Cedar Hills, if you ever get the chance, head there to see the beauty of nature, especially if you are heading through town!

Appreciating Nature

Hey Climbers 🙂

How is everyone enjoying the crisp fall weather? I’m so loving it! I have been loving it so much, I am finding myself more and more outside and taking it all in.
To me, nature is my personal escape from the ever fast moving world. Even though I can’t always escape to the mountains, I can still find the simplicity and beauty of nature in my backyard.

Being able to watch bees work is something so fascinating and can be under appreciated.

It seems that more and more butterflies are vanishing. I was so grateful to sneak up on this beauty.

What I love also about nature is that you don’t always have to leave it behind, it can be brought into the home as well.

My absolute favorite flower!
My absolute favorite flower!

Sunflowers are my personal favorite and go to. I found them at my local grocery store and bought them immediately. From a young age, whenever I was having a bad day or was having anxiety, there always seemed to be sunflowers around and they would either cheer me up, and calm me down. It was odd, at first, because where ever I was, there where sunflowers. But now, if I find it as a personal message and gift from Heavenly Father as a emblem of pressing on, and to never give up. Because there is always a better and brighter day ahead.
I hope you all have a wonderful day! See you in Nature!
