All photos Red Cliffs Desert Reserve, St. George, Utah. March 14, 2010.

The childcare/weather stars aligned on Sunday so we returned to the spot of one of our most high-stress hikes EVER.
The last hike we did on our last trip to Utah, two years ago, where it was full dark when we made it to the car, knowing M's parents were back at the hotel, fretting.
We started two and a half hours earlier this time, a month or more later in the year...and so we enjoyed a leisurely yet strenuous walk through all of the various environments presented by the Red Cliffs Desert Reserve.
Which I cannot more highly recommend.
Five hours of bloody gorgeous in sun cut by a cool breeze is just about as good as it gets...
