Just Can’t Wait to Get On The Road Again!

No road trip is complete without singing a little Willie! Every time we entered the car to go to the next location, I would sing the two famous lines of that song, and off we would go. “On the road again…” la la la *sways back and forth* We entered Zion and the area immediately turned into large red hills and pine trees, similar to Bryce Canyon.
