Spring Break with the Lyons Family

Our winter living in Sand Hollow gives us a good central location for a plethora of great activities. One of our favorite activities is a hiking the red rocks. A trip to the Owls Nest is a must or a swim in the reservoir at Sand Hollow State Park which is across the street. Naturally some cliff jumping into the lake was a must.
 A few short miles by car takes us to a recently discovered hike up beautiful Red Cliffs Canyon. Granddaughter Andee will take on any challenge despite her short legs.
 The frogs in mating season provided some curious entertainment for the granddaughters. The canyon gets to a point where continuation can only be done by getting wet, some places up to your arm pits.
Such excursions are of coarse followed up with a trip to the local In-n-Out Burger Joint. Hey maybe we could get a job here. Better keep my day job.....doin nothin!

Rollingson's Spring Break at Sand Hollow

Our son Derek Rollingson and his family hiking Zion National Park. Nelson,Owen, Natasha, Auston, Tawnya and Derek. The Rollingson's live in Castle Rock, Colorado, but chose to leave the snow behind and spend a week with Gramma and Grampa in sunny Southern Utah.
Nelson and mom enjoying the view from atop the rocks at what we call the Owls Nest.
 Young Auston loved exploring the caves and the slot canyons. Great place to search for Easter eggs.
Family time exercising our 2nd Amendment Rights with a little firearms safety instruction or what we called  "Plinking in the Desert" I got the impression that Natasha preferred to be home practicing her violin.
