This Must Be the Place


We moved 7 miles up the canyon across the highway from where we were, up a creek and with no paddle. There we found an idyllic spot in the shade of large cottonwood trees right by the stream. There is a gentle breeze shaking the leaves of the trees, the birds are chirping and the stream makes a soothing gurgling sound. One couldn't ask for anything better.

Well there is a period in the day when the shade moves away.
  I just drag my chair and carpet around following it.

Off to the right on the other side of the creek is a nice deep trough I can lay in.
After the initial "Oh!" the water feels just right.

I think this place will be fine for awhile.

I mistakenly said yesterday this was the Virgin River.  This is North Creek, a tributary of the Virgin.  The Virgin River runs through Zion Canyon on the other side of those high bluffs.

A little bit of paradise. Here it's grey, cloudy and drizzly - at least one can stay in the shade without undue exertion!

Looks indeed like the perfect spot.

You've found the ideal spot. I wonder what Beans thinks when you decide to get wet in the river.

I agree looks the right place to be for a while
