On the last day of our trip we drove through southern Utah and into Arizona. The northern half of the state is pretty in a desert/barren sort of way and there are many different types of land formations as you can see:

I am not sure if this is in Utah or Arizona but isn't it pretty!?
This was actually way off in the distance but I was able to get an excellent shot
We crested this hill on near Flagstaff on I-17...
..and then saw this is comming down out of the mountians
On Tuesday April 15th we made it into Utah and ran into snow in Salt Lake City. We spent the night at Ruby's Inn at Bryce Canyon and planned to do a little sightseeing the next morning. However, when we checked in around 8pm it was already 30 degrees Fahrenheit, and as you can imagine the next morning was very cold. Seeing as we didn't have any of our winter gear we thought we could go to the visitors center and there would be some sort of vantage point at which we could grab a few pictures. The entrance fee to the park was $25 and we felt that was a bit much for just a photo-op and no hiking. We did get these amazing pictures of Red Canyon though:
Snow in Utah!
Ben got out of the truck and took this amazing picture at the entrance of Red Canyon

I love the conical pine trees and rocks contrasted against the sky
