St. George 2015 - Zion National Park - Part Five

On our last day in Zion we hiked the trail to Weeping Rock. It was a good choice, because it's short. We didn't have to wake up early, and we were back in St. George in time to fix dinner for everyone.

On the way to Weeping Rock, we stopped at the Court of the Patriarchs. Since we'll be studying the Old Testament in seminary this year, I thought a picture of the Abraham, Isaac and Jacob peaks might come in handy. Too bad that Mount Moroni is in front of Mount Jacob!

It looks like they've updated the informational sign, but the mountains haven't changed.
Then it was off to Weeping Rock where we met up with Weston's family.
Although it's only 1/4 mile to the end of the trail, there are sharp drop-offs, so we had to be careful to harness the little boys' energy.
And you do need to be prepared to get rained on at the end.

The reward for obeying the rules on the trail was a chance to play in the creek back at the trail head.
It was probably more fun than climbing the mountain!
Lots of fun memories were created during our family reunion week. I'm looking forward to the next one!
