Days 10-17. Our stay in St. George, Utah

We arrived at my good friend Kelli’s house in St. George, Utah 3 days early – broken and tired from a rough start to our trip. We were able to park the camper in Kelli’s side yard and took the car into the local Toyota dealership for repairs. We all settled in and took advantage of the Wifi, air conditioning and the modern conveniences of living in a house.

We were supposed to camp at a nearby state park, but Kelli and her fiance’ Kevin convinced us to stay for the entire week at their house due to the extremely hot temperatures (105 degrees) during June/July. It didn’t take too much arm twisting before I was online canceling our camping reservations.

By the next day, Erin was feeling better and we made plans for the week. Some highlights include:

  • Girl’s Day Out with massage, pedicure and lunch at Red Mountain Spa
  • Car repair only took one day and seemed to be fixed
  • Dinner at Cliffside Restaurant
  • Hiking the Narrows at Zion National Park
  • Kayaking and a picnic at Kolob Reservoir
  • Brunch at Xetava
  • Teaching Kelli and Kevin a new board game every night

Squam 2016

Fall Squam 2014

I’m heading back to Squam Lake this week. My first trip was in 2011. At the time, I traveled with my good friend Eva. We both had dreamed of attending Squam Art Workshops and I thought it was never going to happen.  We made the leap and signed up. It was magical.

This marks my 5th trip and I am bringing along another good friend, Marceline. She has always wanted to attend and I know she is going to love it and be so inspired by the community of amazing women and the the natural surroundings. My wish is that her soul is filled to the brim with creativity and gratitude.
