Holiday Pages - 2016


I always make pages of the photos from our ski holiday, so here is a small selection of my favourites. As you can see, we went to Utah and stayed in Utah this time.


Due to the lack of new snow, we did more sightseeing this year, this is the Parown Gap and its petroglyphs near Cedar City.


This was the long windy road up to Cedar Breaks, there wasn't any new snow, the snow plough was just chipping the edges away and blowing it out its blower!


History behind Antelope Island, a place no-one wanted, so the mormons claimed it.


We saw wild bisons and a couple of antelopes on the island.


Stunning views of the red rock whilst driving through Kolob Canyons, southern Utah.


More stunning red rock, we just touched the tip of Zion National Park.


Martin saw this guy, Jim, carving animals with a chainsaw, and I fell in love with the bear top left but it was far too big for us to get home, so he made a smaller one especially for us. We sat him on our balcony and gave him some sunglasses! We got him home in one piece eventually, after being stopped, searched and swabbed at the airport, he is now sat in our fireplace!
