One of my travels, led us to the: Zion Canyon, it is located in Utah.   Headquarters: State Rte. 9, Springdale,UT. 84767.

Phone number: (435) 773-3256.   The park is open year-round. Call headquarters for weather conditions. Shuttle service on Zion Canyon Scenic Drive. Pick up free shuttle in springdale or at the Zion Canyon Visitor Center. Shuttle runs April through October.

Established November 19,1919. 146,592 Acres. The scale is immense-sheer cliffs dropping 3,000 feet, massive buttresses,deep alcoves. Nineteenth century mormon pioneers saw these sculptured rocks as the "natural temples of God." They called the canyon Little Zion after the celestial city. A million years of flowing water has cut through the red and white beds of Navajo sandstone that form the sheer walls of Zion. The geologic heart of the canyon began as a vast desert millions of years ago; almost incessant winds blew one dune on top of another until the sands reached a depth of more than 2,000 feet. You can still see the trach of these ancient winds in the graceful cross bedded strata of Zion's mighty cliffs. Zion canyon is usually viewed from the bottom up. The vertical topography confines most of Zion's 2.5 million yearly visitors between canyon walls.

 Bryce Canyon:  Is located in Utah. Established September 15, 1928. 35,835 Acres.

Headquarters: Bryce P.O.Box 640201, UT. 84764-0201. Phone number: (435) 834-5322.  

The park is open year-round. Roads may be closed due to snowstorms, short periods. Some spur roads closed in winter for cross-country skiing.Phone headquarters for information.

The park follows the edge of the Paunsaugunt Plateau. On the west are heavily forested tableslands more than 9,000 feet high; on the east are the intricately carved breaks that drop 2,ooo feet to the Paria Valley. Many ephemeral streams have eaten into the plateau, forming horse shoeshaped bowls. The largest and most striking is Bryce Amphitheater. Encompassing 6 square miles, it is the park's scenic heart. For million of years water has carved, as it continues to, Bryce's rugged landscape.




  Saint Augustine Florida is the oldest European city in the United States. The area was first sought after by Ponce de Lean in 1513, Juan Menendez de Aviles who established the first settlement, almost half a century before the first English settlers landed at Jamestown. The spanish sold Florida to America in 1821 and left the city.

When I was very young, I always wanted to visit St. Augustine, Florida. I finally did years later. I walked the grounds, the same earth that the early settlers walked and raised their chidren. I saw the grave sites of several members of their society of their time. Looking at the trees, flourishing flowers,and smelling the air of St. Augustine was just wonderful. The people were friendly to speak to. The restaurants had tasty meals.  I would like to invite you and your family to visit Florida, you'll have a memorable time there.
