Summertime means summer fun and that means Family get-to-gathers! Even at the Parowan Gap!
This place is one of those treasures that that happens to be close to the freeway, but rarely visited. On our way to the cabin, Grandma Zucc and I, not wanting to arrive there too early, decided to check out the Indian writings close to town, and wow, we were delighted with what we found.
So, a couple days later I brought some family members back for a closer look.

The following photo is just a small part of the vast amount of petroglyphs in the gap, and the good part is that you don't even have to leave the car to see them.

About a mile from the indian writings, we visited the dinosaur footprints. Like the "glyphs,' the "prints" are easily accessible.

Before we left the area, I just had to have my picture taken with my lovely granddaughters.

Recent water erosion caused this hole in a massive chunk of sandstone. Julie was gracious enough to pose, showing off not only her big smile, but also the size of the opening.
So, upon returning to the cabin, we quickly put on the helmets, and mounted the 4-wheelers. Before long, even Rachel was riding by herself.

Part of cabin fun is the prizes. Jeff proudly wears one of them.
And soon little Rachel just had to try them on.
