While listening to The Hobbit, we entered the ethereal, surreal Utah landscape. As if traveling with Bilbo and company, we passed through Goblin Valley then climbed to Black Dragon Canyon. For lunch we stopped in the wooded area of Salina (sweet red pepper hummus from the Natural Foods Mkt in Silverthorne, CO, pita, avocado, and delicious organic grape tomatoes that burst with flavor and juice in our mouths all from Whole Foods in St Paul, MN). Later during our drive, we saw magnificent misty mountains as we approached the exit for Zion National Park. We continued past Zion to St. George, Utah for the night--six-hour drive today.
