28th February 2012

Having spent the night at Ed's new place in Hurricane it was time to brave the forecast storm and head for home, Biff seemed unconcerned about the weather. Thanks to Ed for having us. As we drove up the hill to Zion the clouds descended on the surrounding jagged peaks.

Intermittent snow showers and clearings provided very atmospheric views inside the park.

By the time I reached the end of the road at the Temple Of Senyawa the snow had begun to fall more heavily down the valley and visibility was limited on the drive out.

The snow continued all the way to US89 and up almost to UT12 where it stopped just long enough for me to get a few pictures in Red Canyon.

The clouds were down low over Bryce Canyon so I didn't venture in.
Biff was getting anxious for a walk, so somewhere near Powell Point we stopped and got our feet very muddy.

We walked down into the trees in grey mud and crusty snow.

For a short while after the walk the snow got heavy again.

And then it stopped. We had a nice view over the Escalante River just above the Kiva Koffee House

We found ourselves on the summit of Utah 12 over Boulder Mountain as the sun was getting low and had some magnificent views over Capitol Reef.

Lower Bowns reservoir covered in snow.

And then we were home, Biff (who I just realised is not in any of today's pictures), was very pleased to see Janet after most of five days in the truck and covering 1300 miles. He likes to ride in the truck and generally behaves himself well, the next morning he was ready to climb aboard again.
