Southwest Trip Sept 2016

I know my blog is usually for dog related posts. But, so many people were interested in these photos I thought it would be easier posting on a separate page.
Our adventure started on Sept 19th we landed in Las Vegas and headed for Cedar City Utah. Along the way we went through Virgin River Gorge.

We stayed in a delightful hotel Abbey Inn- the staff was great. Thank goodness they had a laundry our luggage was soaked from the down pour at the airport at our departure.
We headed over Cedar Mountain the next day and hit a few parks along the way.

Powell lake resort was rather expensive and the staff less than friendly.
The boat tour was alot of fun.
