Planning a Retreat to Zion


I am one month away from finishing my Smaller Sarah year.  I've been thinking a lot about honoring the one year anniversary with a mini-retreat.  On June 1st, I will be in Cedar City, Utah where my husband is working for part of the summer.  If you recall, I began Smaller Sarah while I was there last year!  I read somewhere that the best place to start a new habit was while traveling or away from home.  

So I've decided to finish up my year with a retreat in Zion National Park.  The park is very close to Cedar City and my mother-in-law has lovingly agreed to kid-wrangle while I'm gone.  I've secured a place to stay for three nights and will fill my days with camping, hiking, green food, journaling and other retreat-like activity.  I haven't had any real time to myself in years and I am looking forward to this retreat more than I can say.  Every woman needs a little vision quest every once in a while, don't you think?




So now, I'm compiling ideas for my retreat to Zion.  Guided journal questions, massage studios in Springdale (the town at the base of Zion), outdoor yoga classes, trail rides, etc.  If you have any thoughts or ideas about how YOU would spend four days in Zion - comment below and let me know!  I'm all ears.

Sarah-

You're so fit, I suggest you take the Observation Point trail - it looks DOWN on Angel's Landing. Going all the way out to the end, and looking back down the canyon is sublime.

I think Zion is one of the most beautiful places on earth. It will make a wonderful backdrop to your time of retreat and reflection.

Wanted to tell you I ran my first 5K this past Saturday. It was really fun and am planning my next one and thinking that maybe the White Rock half is in my future.

I am a afraid to commit to the White Rock half, too much emotional baggage, I think.
