First thing in the morning. Self explanatory.
The valve wasn't opening because it was frozen. Blow drying it helped.
More Snow Canyon photos before we leave.
See the little dots on the red hill? You may need to blow up photo.
The St George, Utah Post Office is in the Ace Hardware store.
This is about all we got to see of Kolub Canyon, as the road was closed due to ice and snow.
On the road ...
Near Silver Reef.
This nice man helped us turn around on the road when it became too icy. Good thing, because it was my idea to be on that road in the first place, and I never would have heard the end of it had we gotten stuck.
On the road ...
You REALLY want to make this turn.
My Pi checks into Ruby's Inn Campground.
For obvious reasons, no pictures from the day.
However, we did a ranger walk in the morning to Butterfly Canyon and Petrified Dunes trail. In the afternoon, we did the Hidden Pinyon Trail and Three Ponds Trail.

We drive to "Pah Tempe" Hot Springs. Ancient Native American phrase meaning "Here Come Some Tourists." It is sort of closed but sort of open to groups. I didn't get the full story. Some legal issue? We are a group of two.

One of the highlights was playing "Holiday Bingo".
The words that were used are hilarious. And I will play Freud by analyzing the different ways in which people mark a bingo square as having been called.
Too lazy to draw the second diagonal line.
This was my favorite. This person is clearly artistic. Also very thorough. Or just plain OCD.
To lazy to play.
Another amusing thing.
There was supposed to have also been a "Employee Names Bingo." Someone, I won't mention names so as not to embarrass the dim, decided that there were not enough "Employee Names Bingo" cards, so he/she Xeroxed some of them so as to get more.
That would have been a fun game. Winner is the first to yell bingo after getting bingo.
