Utah National Parks in Winter

January 28, 2023 The winter adventures continued this week as we took Luke’s mother Lynn all around southern Utah and to the National parks.  It has continued to be snowy and cold for the rest of her time visiting so we found things to do in the car and took walks on paved and plowed roads.  We took a ride through Best Friend’s Animal Sanctuary in Kanab and had a nice lunch at a Cuban restaurant.  She tried mojo pork and liked it which is great since I had it on my menu plan for later in the week.  Here is Angel’s Rest Pet…

Getting out more has also resulted in me meeting more people and damn I just love…

I didn’t really take many photos this past week and there will certainly be other weeks like that.  In order to keep us all visually stimulated I will share past photos you may not have seen randomly in blogs like this one.  For example, our cover image today is a lighthouse in Howth, Ireland, just outside of Dublin.  Luke and I visited there in 2015.  He was there for a work trip for Salesforce and I was tagging along for a sightseeing vacation.  We took the train out to this seaport one day.  It was grey and rainy, but we were still charmed.  There…
