Utah’s Gone to the Dogs

Look out Utah!

This afternoon the Hembree’s will be in your state on a little driving vacation to some of the national parks in the area. Last year we traveled to California with Pete the Cat. Soon after he moved to Australia and become a permanent Aussie!

The year before, Pigeon went with me to Massachusetts to visit my family. Here is a link to that post and a movie I made about our trip.

So, who is coming along this year? It was a big decision because I had lots of fun choices in the library. When I was thinking about the possibilities, I realized we hadn’t traveled with a dog yet. How can that be? The owner of two dogs hadn’t traveled with a doggie friend on vacation? That’s when I made my decision. The dog from my favorite book when I was a little girl would be our guest! I hope he can handle the heat because it’s going to be pretty hot!

So, look for some upcoming posts about our trip! We will be going to Zion National Park, Bryce National Park and the Grand Canyon. We are also going to a place called Antelope Canyon. Do you know where that is?

Why is it named antelope canyon? What state will we be in at Antelope Canyon? Leave me a comment and let me know what you find out! And don’t forget to keep reading! I have books with me too!

Happy Reading! Mrs. Hembree

  1. Dear Mr. and Mrs. Hembree and dogs,

    How exciting to hit the road for the summer! I love a road trip!

    I have visited the Grand Canyon, Bryce National Park, and Zion National Park. I’ll be curious to hear what you think of each park. As I mentioned to you at ISTE, I enjoyed walking the Narrows in Zion. Here is a link to some pictures from this special place:


    We hiked the river wearing tennis shoes as the bottom was rocky. The deepest it got was up to the top of my leg. We hiked for about two hours one way, and that is where it really got narrow. The air temperature was quite hot so the water felt refreshing. However, some people complained that their feet got too cold. Naturally, the water was cooler at the bottom than at the top.

    Happy trails, Hembrees!

    Your pal,
    Mrs. Y♥llis
