We started our morning with breakfast at Bumbleberry's on Main Street in Springdale near Zion. I'm still not sure if there really is such a berry, but we had bumbleberry syrup on our french toast. They are two different kinds of berries that grow on giggle bush not near any other bush...so it goes. They're purple and taste much like grape jelly.

Keegan and Collin wanted to stop by and see the elk and buffalo one more time before heading on to Zion National Park for a day of hiking and exploring. We arrived at Zion and it was packed with many people from other countries and Connecticut was the most popular state where we met families from.

We jumped on the shuttle headed for the museum to watch a movie about the history of Zion. After the informative movie, we rode the shuttle to the Zion Lodge stop where we hiked up to the Tidal Pools. The paths were dirt with cliffs on the right sight and extraordinary views. Keegan and Collin had such a fun time climbing around the huge boulders and playing around the water. On the way back, we passed a deer just 20 feet from our path. We thought it would run when it saw us, but it stood there and walked closer so we could get a photo. These spoiled Zion deer never heard of "hunting season" or gun shots.

Our day was filled with hiking, exploring, meeting new friends along our paths, and working on our Jr. Ranger books. As we travelled east leaving Zion, we drove by some of the most amazing rock formations your eyes can imagine. Zion is a must see! I liked it more than the Grand Canyon. The boys loved all the hiking and can't wait to come back with Chris and want to bring some family friends to camp!!!
