Heading to Palm Creek from Vegas, we decided to go across the Hoover Dam. The new bridge is almost finished so it will probably the last time we cross this way. Lake Mead is very sad, the water is extremely low, people better start watching their water usage.

Today was one of the experiences I won't ever forget. Hank and I rented wet shoes and hiking sticks and walked the Narrows. You walk 1 mile up the riverside walk, then straight into the River. You walk about 80% of the time in really cold water, climbing over big rocks, deep water, and silt.

Yesterday, Hank and I hiked until we were just flat worn out. The main hike was to the Hidden Canyon, climbing higher and higher above the Weeping Falls, looking down over Zion park. This climb was switchbacking up along a face of a cliff to the mouth of a narrow canyon. It took about 3hr.

Today Hank and I went to Antelope Island, surrounded completed by the Great Salt Lake. The island consist of 28,022 acres. We hiked up to Buffalo Points. What a gorgeous view! The wildlife is protected and has something for everyone, birds and ducks, deer, buffalo, coyote, sheep...anyway we had a nice picnic facing the water. The weather 90 degrees, but windy and bugs weren't too bad.

Yesterday I was very busy. First I went to the Family search. I have downloaded all the family tree back until the 1100's. It can be found at Ancestry.com. Now you kids will have forever.Also, worked on another branch.

I think we left Montana just in time. It started raining today, turned very cold. On the tops of the mountains, there is snow. Awesome. So, we are now heading south...stopped in Idaho to see the Lava rocks, sink holes etc...very cool. We arrived in Salt Lake City. We will be here awhile to take my Apple classes and to work on Genealogy tree. Going to be a fun week.
