Nearing the End of my Giveaway

Kids will be back in school on Monday and I am a bit happy and sad all at once.
Great to get back into a routine but this summer went by way to fast!

Sorry, just the last of the photos from our trip.  We decided to go through Zion's National Park on the way home.  More beautiful country but it was so hot and crowded! 
I have always loved going through this tunnel--old with window holes carved out of the mountain for light along the way.  As a kid we stopped to take photos out of the windows but with so much traffic that does not happen anymore. 
The Great White Throne 
This is looking out from Weeping Rock.  We hiked up to it and it was so much more cool with water dripping off the ledge.   
We decided to head home and come back to Zions another time because there were so many people there.
One of the rangers said that they are now averaging 3 million people in the 3 month summer period.
We met many people from France, Germany, and Holland.  It made me wonder if any one was left in their home countries!?! 
Almost home and what was in the distance....a huge fire behind the mountain.
Not exactly the welcome home I wanted.
Thanks again for letting me share my vacation with you.
I guess it is time to get to work.  
I cannot remember the last time I picked up a paint brush...but it was a productive summer between Eagle Scout paperwork and project, the bucket list the kids had and a FUN family vacation!
Life is good!
Enjoy your day,
