After breakfast, we drove over to the Visitor's Center so we could catch the shuttle (the only way you can see portions of the park).
Our first stop was the Court of the Patriarchs Viewpoint, a place we hadn't visited on our trip here in 2003 (which you can read about at http://hometown.aol.com/linda0146/zion.html
Our next stop was Zion Lodge where we had lunch before getting on another shuttle and riding up to the last stop on the route, Temple of Sinawava. We didn't take the entire Riverside Walk this time, since we'd done it in 2003, so we just walked down to the river this time.
After getting back on the shuttle, we got off at the Big Bend stop because we wanted to watch the rock climbers we'd seen coming up the valley. We had to walk down the road a ways in order to see all of the climbers, so since going back to Big Bend meant walking back up hill, we decided to continue walking down to the next shuttle stop at Weeping Rock.
We had a surprise visit by Tioga George, a fulltime RVer well known in the RVing community. He is parked right across the street from us, and is, in fact, the reason we selected the spot we're in, because he has a Datastorm on top of his RV (an automatic satellite Internet system), which was deployed. However, my brain must have been on vacation, because I never put two and two together to realize that it was George who was parked near us. We had a really nice conversation with George, and he put me on to an auto stitch program which stitches several pictures together to make a panorama. I'm looking forward to experimenting with it.
