St. George and Zion

Here are pictures that were promised. This weekend, my roommate, Ontario, Edie and I are traveling around Southern Utah. Today we went to Zion National Park and St. George where we are sleeping... so anyway the first few pictures are the St. George LDS (Mormon) Temple which is beautiful. This was one of the first working temples in the Church and was completed in 1877.

The front of the Temple says:
Holiness to the Lord
The House of the Lord
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints
St. George Temple

I think this picture with the flag and the sky is really cool!!!

Possible calendar 2010 picture of Edie???
Sitting pretty in Zion

Edie was not real thrilled with this picture spot or something...

***We could not go to "The Grotto" which is the famous part of Zion because you have to ride a shuttle there and they don't allow dogs on the shuttle. Of course Edie--being a PIT would be fine, but Ontario is a pet and is not allowed on the shuttle. Tomorrow we are going to the Grand Canyon after we drop Ontario off with his new mom. Then on Monday morning we are going to go back to Zion and ride the shuttle and take some hikes with Edie...look for more pictures in the next few days!!!

This is a picture I took a few days ago, when I looked at the puppies and they were cuddled together on the bed...aren't they so cute???

What great photos! I love the one of the dogs cuddling. How generous of you to give up Ontario. The timing is interesting, since you will also be turning Edie in AND starting summer vacation all in the same timeframe. Will you be dogless? Congrats on your first year of teaching!
