Snow Canyon Picnic

Off for a picnic in Snow Canyon-it's 65 degrees today, but a storm is coming.
I love the red rocks of Southern Utah and the variations in colors. 
Just imagine the forces that formed these cliffs over the years...
Found a quiet picnic spot to enjoy our Jimmy John sandwiches.

Soon we had a visitor, my guess is a Rocky Mountain Blue Jay.
Hubby  threw a potato chip at the end of the table and Mr. Jay grabbed it.
The view looking back into the St. George area, only $3 park admission.
Notice the variations in color with different layers of rock.
Even desert cactus is beautiful, but don't touch....

No outdoor picnics around here right now. Unless you want to bundle up with something cozy first, and bring thermoses of hot cocoa or coffee.

Lovely views for a picnic, Lin!


Happy day to you....

What a great idea to just grab some take out sandwiches and head to the hills for a picnic. You gotta' make hay while the sun shines.

Your photos are beautiful, Lin. You certainly got a great shot of the blue jay in the tree.
