We left home after I'd gotten home from work, end of my work shift is midnight. This would be our first trip to Bryce NP and seeing our friends in St.George, UT.
I had only planned on driving to Stoddard OVH area near Barstow, CA. and spent a quiet night there.
We are north of Lost Wages on the I-15, just don't remmber where.
I'd pull onto the off ramp for a break, we are north of Lost Wages.
Our first sight of the Virgin River.
I-15 goes through the gouge area with several large pull outs. This one wasn't the largest pull out,but still had a good view of the Virgin River.
Facing south along the I-15

Our site at Settlers RV Park in St. George, Uath.
Large and small RV's welcomed here.

Just east of Cader City on Hwy14, what a beautiful area.
A small part of the Virgin River, notice the milky white color of the water.
I stopped in the roadway to take this photo, I'd though the road behind me was clear. Then this truck pulling a trailer passed us up,time to get moving.
This photo doesn't do justice to the sight before us. The mountain ahead was still partly hidden in shadows.
Below us is Navajo Lake,snow is still on the ground at the tree line.
Another couple where kind enough to take our photo of our moment in time.
We drove down to Navajo Lake to check out the campgrounds, they are closed this time of the year.
My beautiful along with our truck next to Navajo Lake. We are heading to a water fall we were told about.
The back road to Cascade Falls.
Julie all bundle up, it was still very cool this morning.
A eye poping view from the trail out to Cascade Falls.
The path wanders among the many different trees and shrubs.
From here we could just see the beginnings of the waterfall.
A small out crop with a bench on the trail.
Right out of the mountain side.
Looking downward at the rushing water of the waterfall.
As the day moved on, it got warmer and we ended up over dressed.
A photo stop on the way back to the trail head.
My lovey wife poses with this strange shaped pine tree.
A last look of the waterfall.
If we didn't have to be in Bryce today, I would had stayed here overnight.
There's even a human pitstop to use.
Don't tell me how to cook, go take some photos
At the ice cave, not far from Duck Creek visitor center. Even this time of the year some snow survived in the shaded areas.
