Mary's Vale 4-wheeling fun

We stayed at "Moores Old Pine Inn" Bed and Breakfast at Mary's Vale. If you blink twice you will miss this 7 street light town. This is the perfect get away, Try it you'll love it.
The fall colors up the mountain were spectacular. Give it one more week and they will be even more vibrant. The bright yellows, oranges, and reds against the forest green were breath taking.
I can't wait to see the fall colors take place in New York next fall. That's probably a great time for visiting the missionaries in NYC. Every one is invited.
We had a small group this year, many cancelled at the last moment. Including Mitzi and Jay who caught a terrible flew that kept them in bed. Hope you are feeling better.
One of the many mines we found while touring the mountaine side.

For the past 6 or 7 years we have gone on an annual 4-wheeling adventure with many of the friends from the ward and neighborhood. This year we went to Mary's Vale. A tiny little sleepy town on highway 89, 30 miles south of Richfield. We stay at the "Moore's Old Pine Inn.", one of the oldest running Hotels in the state of Utah. Randy and Katie have turned it into a quaint Bed and Breakfast place. It's adorable. We ride our wheelers during the day exploring and visiting beautiful vistas. The first day we rode up the mountain for a short way and crossed over and came down by a little town, Hoover right next to the "Big rock candy Mtn.", where we enjoyed a nice dinner. The next day we rode to the top of Monroe Mtn and came off the face of the Mtn. The trail was really washed out and a "MAJOR" adventure. Our last day we rode up Boulion canyon and 11,700 feet up the back side of Beaver Mtn. Boulion City is an old Ghost Mining town. We toured the walking museum and enjoyed the nostalgia. We will have to savor the sweetness of the mountains and fresh air, bottle it and take it with us to NYC.
