Cedar City to Tucson

We were greeted with another crispy morning: 6 degrees.  After a bowl of oatmeal we were off to the south west skirting the edges of Zion and Grand Canyon National Parks and the Grand Staircase Escalante and Vermillion Cliffs National Monuments.  The snow-fringed red rock formations during the first hour of today’s trip were truly stunning.

As in the past two days, the weather was superb; we had bright sunshine all day with the temperature as we entered Tucson pushing 60 degrees. Quite a change from the morning.  At one point the GPS sent us in the wrong direction for fifteen minutes and slow traffic around Phoenix made for a full ten-hour drive.  But we’re looking forward to three great days in Tucson.
