Day 230

The Utah party managed to squeeze in a couple more sites before heading home today. First up, Black Bear Diner (there are two in St. George) for breakfast, which was nicely decked out for Halloween. Then, probably the most amazing tourist attraction in all of Utah, the Bloomington Petroglyph Park (tongue planted firmly in cheek). Really, though, it was rather intriguing and to think it was saved on a 1/2-acre plot in the middle of a residential development. Sandy had an earlier flight, so we dropped her off at the airport and went back to town to visit the World Wildlife Museum (over 300 taxidermy animals from all over the world). It, too, was good for a short visit. We took one last shot at a fun place for a latte and maybe a munchy, and lucked out - George's Corner Restaurant! We were actually looking for a particular coffee shop, but literally parked in front of this place and decided to give it a whirl. Fun place, lots of history, and Jamie managed to quench both his thirst for booze and hunger for ice cream - Grandma's Float (a scoop of vanilla ice cream drenched in Grand Marnier in a martini glass). All the Utah photos are here.
