Rock Hounds on the Trail

Since my younger, (but taller - who isn't?) sister lives in Florida, we don't get to spend much time together but we made the most of the weekend she came to visit.
Besides taking her and her husband Bone Hunting at Dinosaur National Monument,

we went rock hounding,
rock climbing (sort of),

saw petroglyphs,


and lots of scenery. (Click to enlarge.)
Before we knew it, our too-short visit was over.
As we used to sing along with the Roy Rogers Show re-runs every Saturday morning when we were small, "Happy trails to you, until we meet again..." (I guess that's the closest we have to a sister-song.)


  1. It's good to have a sister visit, isn't it?

  2. I forgot that they were coming to visit. Lots of interesting things to be seen if you aren't from the area. Glad the visit was fun.

  3. Fantastic trip. Thank you for taking us along with you.
    Did you notice the bee on the wildflower?

  4. Hi Janie !! This Is An Amazing Location !! Very Wonderful Images..Seems You Have Really Enjoyed..Great One..Also I Have Started My Own Website And Would Like You To Have A Look At It.I Would Love To Have Your Comments On That Also.Unseen Rajasthan

  5. Yet another great adventure, plus the bonus of family. Those petroglyphs are awesome.

    One of these days we should meet half way somewhere in UT. You know so many great places.

    Also a favorite song of mine as a child. Along with "I am a happy wanderer..."

    Wonderful captures.

  6. How neat, Janie, to have your sister and hubby visiting you. Who wouldn't want to visit you all???? I'm sure they enjoyed their time there.... I surely would!!!!

    Have a great day.

  7. I think I have mentioned before how much I love Utah so I will volunteer to be your sister and move it! And by the way I am an official as a child/ pebble puppy rock hound as an adult so I'll fit right in! I really ;love your blog!

  8. How fun to hang out with Patti! I'm sure it was a blast. Please tell her hello.

  9. What gorgeous pictures you have on your blog...now, I want to visit Utah!! Being a Florida girl...I get so used to the 'flat' and would love to see some mountains and rocky trails. Great post!

  10. It is nice to see family who live far away. Looks like you had a fun time.

  11. Looks like you had fun with Patty and Jeff.

    Very nice photo of the four of you.

  12. How wonderful that you could have such a wonderful visit with your sister. I doubt that she gets to do much rock hounding or rock climbing (sort of) in Florida.

  13. Janie, you working side by side with your hubby, you remind me of Terry Irwin, the American wife of Steve Irwin (the Croc Hunter). :)

    Great to see your sister in this blog post of yours.
