Observation number one: St. George is beautiful


I can't count how many times I have been to St. George, Utah. Yet on all of those family vacations and road trips, I don't believe I ever noticed how red buttes jut out in front of large mountains like pawns in front of a king. I never once wondered why porous black stones sit out-of-place on hard red rock, like they consciously rolled there when no one was looking. Or discovered that the salmon-hued rock looks much more vivid on sunny days.

These are just a few of the wonders I beheld on this trip back after over four years away from St. George. In the midst of my awe, I decided to get a family photo in this beautiful place.Neither the picturesque background nor the cute family really turned out on film though ;(.

I loved seeing the mountains in Vegas, but the ones in your pics are much more beautiful. Amazing the way things look different to us at different times in our life. Did you have fun shopping today. I'm sorry I got your text so late.

Living outside of Utah definitely makes you appreciate its beauty... and quirkiness :)

I'm lucky enough to have grown up in St. George, and I totally agree- it's GORGEOUS! We're spending Christmas there with my family and I'm really excited!
