Pine Valley

2012.03 Pine Valley (6 of 24)
I have a huge backlog of photos to share. I've traveled a LOT more than normal the past 6 months, I've been busy working and I've been teaching Lightroom, all of which have led to a big backlog so get ready for posts that jump around the globe and are full of photos. Today's photos aren't from my trip to Southern Utah last week, instead they are from a trip back in March (which explains the snow on the ground.)

While I was in St George, one of my best friends came down for a long weekend. It was so great to catch up - and to have a friend to do a little light road tripping with. We drove up to Pine Valley on Saturday and spent the night there chaperoning a sorority group (man, did that make me feel OLD.)

Pine Valley is a tiny town, high up in the mountains, close to the red rocks of Southern Utah and yet it feels like you are in another world, one that time has almost forgotten.

I have a feeling this isn't my last visit to this charming town.

If I ever manage to settle permanently (or as permanently as I settle anywhere) I think Pine Valley will become my favorite way to escape the heat of a Southern Utah Summer.

This song was featured at the end of the season finale of Revenge (one of my favorite new TV shows) and I haven't been able to get it out of my head since. Florence and the Machine: Seven Devils.

Oh, I love Pine Valley. It is beautiful all year round. So glad you got to go up there. There and a place near Kolob Reservoir were my summer heat escapes. I will have to tell you how to get up to the Kolob viewpoint. It looks down over Zion's and is gorgeous. Every time I try to take Jason there it is closed!
