Yesterday, we had the opportunity to head out on an adventure with some of our friends. We visited two of my favorite places. The first was the fossilized oyster bed in The Grand Staircase National Monument.
The last time we were hear Jack was just a toddler. He has always been my rock guy so I knew he would love to visit here.
There are so many fossils out here, it really is amazing.
The geology of the area was amazing. Talisa is taking a geology class right now in college and it was great to have her along. She was able to explain some of the things we noticed.
We found this layer of coal. Which brought up all sorts of questions that we are looking in to. It crumbled really easily, but the colors are a match to some of the rock that my husband uses for flintknapping.
After we had explored for a while, we headed over to the Paria Canyon. The colors in the canyon walls are amazing.
We found the cemetary.
Our last stop was the Paria River. It is so beautiful here.
It was a beautiful day, spent with wonderful friends. Can't wait to do it again!
