Festiva in the Park: Day 11

MONDAY JUNE 11th, 2012

We are feeling really tired after the harrowing drive the other night and spending the day in Zion National Park so we decided to drop our planned visit to Bryce Canyon in favor of a stroll in historic downtown Cedar City and a leisurely drive up to Provo, our next overnight stop.

Welcome to Cedar City UT.
I ready to head out!

We grabbed a bun and a drink at a local bakery and headed north on I-15 to Provo. We did spot a white Festiva as we were leaving. It looked to be in great shape, had some graphics on the side and a custom exhaust. We were too far behind to catch up before we turned onto the Interstate so unfortunately we didn't get a photo.

Once we got onto the Interstate I saw a sign that I thought said "speedometer test section ahead" but was surprised when the speed limit jumped up to 80mph (129kph). I realized then that the sign had said "speed LIMIT test section ahead".

I think I can... I think I can... I know I can! ... and that's with
five in the car and the A/C blowing cold!
After settling in our hotel and grabbing a bite to eat we headed off to a local picnic area at Provo's Bridal Veil Falls. It was a short walk from the parking lot to the spot where you can see the falls.

Welcome to Provo!

If you look closely you can see I and E climbing the lower portion of the falls

Thanks to the young lady who took this picture... she had to lean out quite a way over the water to take it.

That wraps up Day 11. Tomorrow we continue our northward trek and end up in Idaho Falls.
