Beat the Heat in St George

It can get hot here in Zion—there’s no question about that. And it will probably get hotter as the summer continues. So how do you still enjoy yourself in the blazing heat? Here are a few simple ideas that offer you a chance to stay cool without losing out on the action.

Hit the Trails Early

It’s said that the early bird gets the worm. In the case of hiking, you are going to need to be the early bird, and the worm you’re after is temperatures 20-30 degrees cooler than the main heat of the day. Pretty tasty sounding worm, huh?

The shuttles in Zion National Park start running at 8 o’clock in the morning, and that’s when you should be waiting for them if you want to get a good hike in before the real heat wave. Once you’ve enjoyed a good hike in the morning, it’s time to treat yourself to some relaxation. Most of the hotels in Springdale have pools, so don’t feel like you have to be on a trail the whole day. The wise man takes the afternoon off and enjoys the pool.

The Emerald Pools & The Narrows

Although heading up to the Emerald Pools isn’t 100% shaded, compared to a lot of the other popular trails in Zion, the Emerald Pools trail is a shady paradise. If you miss the early option or choose to spend the morning on some other trail, this route makes a nice escape from the sun in the mid to late afternoon and even offers some refreshing waterfalls part of the year.

The Narrows can be done a few different ways, but if you just want a quick, easy taste of it—and a chance to cool off—then taking the shuttle is the way for you. To access the Narrows this way, ride the shuttle to the very last stop on the canyon. You’ll then head up the Narrows from the bottom. You can’t see all 16 miles of it this way, but you can still experience the majesty and wonder of the Narrows. And best of all, you’re spending 70% of your time knee-deep or less in water.

Outside the Park

A great vacation to Zion National Park is not cheapened by leaving the park and experiencing the other natural beauties of the area. It will enrichen your experience to take a break to swim outside the park. There are two excellent reservoirs within a 30 minute drive of Zion named Quail Creek and Sand Hollow.

Sand Hollow is an almost unbelievably pretty reservoir surrounded by red rock and sand dunes. There is powder-soft sand along a good portion of the shore and a boat launch just in case you had more in mind than just swimming. You’ll find Sand Hollow not nearly as crowded as the park. And most importantly, you’ll find it full of cool, refreshing water.

Making the most of your trip to Zion sometimes means managing the hours you spend under the sun. Be liberal with the sunscreen, drink twice as much water as you think you need, and know when you need to take a break. After all, it’s a vacation, so don’t over work yourself this summer in Zion.

That’s it, that’s how you beat the heat in St George, and if you need a place to lay your head or park your RV in St George, then Temple View is a great option.

Few Tips for the Beginner Photographers

For those who love photography and would like to try it out for the first time, you are likely to find a lot of general information on photography. When other may click on these articles, venture out and be smart. Search for the tips on the specific camera model you have. These are things I learned recently on my visit to a Bryce Canyon lodge for our vacation to Bryce Canyon National Park, or the prettiest national park in the US.

You can look up on how to put up the camera in different situations like photographing during the night, or during up close shoots. There is at least someone who has done some research on how to erect your camera in this different situations and it might be helpful to you.

I’m going to be talking about the T1i, which is one of the best cameras to use for beginners. This is because:

• Improved ergonomics-the T1i has improved ergonomics from the earlier versions of the Canon DSLRs. This has made it easy to shoot in places that the DSLR could not work. All you require is to click on the SET button and all the settings appear on the rear panel. This way, you can be able to change on the default setting in the camera.

• Improved visual- the T1i also has a 3” LCD that is coated to avoid reflection. It provides sharp and bright images that are huge enough you to see.

• Light in weight- the T1i is very light making it ideal to travel with for long distances. It is made of light metal on the lens mount and very tough plastic. This makes it easy to withstand any damage such as falling.

• Single handed shooting- the T1i is very easy to use. It has taken a huge and creative manner to make it the first Canon DSLR that can be operated with one hand. You can actually use one hand to hold the camera and press the PLAY button. The previous Canon DSLRs required the photographer to use both hands to operate it. With one hand in the T1i, you can zoom, scroll and take a photo.

Thus, for a beginner, use the Canon Digital Rebel T1i and you will be amazed at the kind of photos you will produce. Later on, you can try the improved versions of Canon.

Five Golf Tips for Seniors

Flexibility has become critical in our swings as we age

The importance of incorporating sports and leisure to retirees and seniors has been recognized due to the advantageous impact to them. Golf is one of the most popular leisure activities among seniors. This has invigorated them mentally and physically not only as a form of leisure and enjoyment but a good source of exercise. One of our favorite spots to golf is in St George Utah, the climate there makes for a golfers paradise.  This fall we found a great hotel to stay in, so if you’re looking for places to stay in St George look no further.

Many seniors have a wrong perception about the game that as they age, they stopped playing golf because their body can no longer adapt to the requirement of the game. This is entirely a misconception.

Some seniors find golf as a frustrating game for them as they cannot turn the way they used to before. You don’t have to worry because your body as a senior can still have the best enjoyment out from playing golf. With a different style of training approach that fits to the seniors’ needs today, golf has become an extremely interesting for them. The excitement continues for many senior golfers given the training and acceptance what their body can perform today. So, senior golfers will start learning again the way they used when they started golf at a younger age but this time, learning the way on how both their body and mind can enjoy the game.

Turn back the hands of clock and consider five tips below and swinging factors to help resolve the flexibility issue of seniors:

  1. Try for a stance width that is comfortable for you. When feet are closer to each other, it becomes much easier to rotate and transfer your weight. This enhances your capability to backswing and follow through as well as resolves your flexibility issue associated to this moves. This will improve the speed of how you rotate your hips during backswing and distribution of weight on your feet. When backswing is successful, it thus become easier to initiate a forward swing. As you get along, you can try for various stance width gradually to know how it creates speed on club head and eventually improves distance.
  2. Place the lifting effort on the left heel during backswing. While performing a backswing, it is important to pay focus on the amount of rotation on your hip and shoulder. These are the primary sources of power, thus it is important to allow your left heel stayed down that will eventually create more rotation on the backswing. As golfers aged, flexibility becomes an issue and making a full swing would be a problem. On one hand, trying a heel lift would help to make a complete turn possible.
  3. Avoid tension. By all means, try not to feel frustrated about the game because this creates tension. When tension is present, it kills the excitement and devastates your ability to perform well in the game.
  4. Go for a 10-finger grip. The wrist hinges more easily if there is an easy pressure on the hands. Using all fingers to grip the club has surprising results to most senior golfers. It is more comfortable to hold the club without exerting much pressure on the hands. When there is an added hinging on the wrist coupled with softer pressure on the hands, aiming for increased swings on the club and more distance is more likely possible.
  5. Hit the mark by swinging ‘through the ball’. Your main target is to move the ball forward and not entirely hitting the ball. You must completely aim to increase the club head speed and not allowing hitting the ball head alone. Using the proper shaft and clubs plus a combined swinging through a ball can be your ingredient to a real target.

Playing golf has become more exciting as we age. All it takes is proper training and knowledge on how we could utilize our flexibility to adjust with the body that we have today!

Tips for a Safe ATV Snow Riding

The winter season is never a hindrance to get out of the snow and enjoy. ATV riding is one of the best activities to enjoy the snow but before you take off, it is important o learn the basic rules for a safe ATV snow riding. These are some tips that were taught to us during our stay in Zion Canyon, when we did some snow riding with an ATV tour in Utah.

Keep Up with the Basic Safety Policies

  • Regardless of the weather condition, it is crucial to always wear a helmet and other suitable safety and protective gears.
  • For an overnight escapade, it is important to always bring alongside necessary survival items or safety kit.
  • Always check your ATV before heading out especially when you bought a used vehicle and you are about to ride it for the first encounter.
  • Get acquainted with your local and state laws and always obey them.

Your Safety Starts at Ownership

If you love the snow for your ultimate ATV riding, make sure that the vehicle you bought is snow ready. If you wanted to purchase a used or second hand four wheeler all terrain vehicle, be cautious to know how the previous owner have handled the vehicle. Keep everything in good condition from battery life to traction and wind protection. Tire is often one of the overlooked parts in purchasing an ATV. Make sure that there is still enough thread left on the tires to ensure that you get the traction you need while cruising the snow.

Preparations for the First Ride

There is a need to make preparations before your first ride out in the snow. The following areas listed below are some of the aspects that should be taken careful attention:

  • Check for battery. One of the best ways to ensure that your vehicle gets going with uninterrupted performance is to charge the battery. People in the northern areas appreciate the necessity of a warmed and freshly charged battery. It is a difficult situation especially when your ATV stopped in the middle of nowhere. Thus, it is important that keep your ATV garaged and its battery always charged. Also, you need to test if the battery charges before taking off. A trickle charger is also necessary to slowly charge your battery basically in colder nights. When the temperature reaches to sub zero, keep your battery always charged.
  • Fluid Levels. Always inspect that all fluids have been filled up before going out to enjoy your ATV snow riding. Fluids like water, oil, gas, antifreeze, etc are very essential to ensure that your vehicle gets going smoothly. If any of these fluids gets low will cause the engine to fail and your vehicle might stop running leaving you behind in the middle of the snow. Always inspect your coolant if it gets the right amount of antifreeze. To guarantee a balanced antifreeze mix, there are available antifreeze kits in the market.
  • Wind Protection. Heavy winds are likely to be one of the intervening factors in enjoying your ATV riding in the snow. When the temperature drops to almost zero, one who is exposed outside will basically suffer from frostbite. You must have proper protection from the risk of high winds such as windshields, handle bar or gauntlet to secure your hands from extreme cold.
  • Tire Traction. ATV tires should be properly equipped to ensure that it can stand heavy snow and ice. Before going out, make sure that your tires are snow ready and if possible, provide tire chains to increase traction. Tire chains are also helpful specifically in plowing snow you’re your ATV. Another thing is to make sure that your tires are inflated accurately because compared to other vehicles, your ATV takes much higher pounding. There are better options of tire chains which you can buy either online or in local shops.

It is always necessary to read your ATV’s user manual before you deploy outside for a real ride. However, boring in detail, you may never sure the peculiarity of ATV especially those purchased on second hand basis.

Enjoying the Snow Outside 

  • If probable you don’t want to get stuck alone in the middle of the cold, thus, on bring along with a buddy during your first ride.
  • Be careful not to weigh yourself with too much heaviness. This will cause the snow to turn into ice under your tires that might cause you to get stuck.
  • Your trail on summer is never the same to navigate during the winter. Before you decide for a ride outside, make familiar with the route. Of course, you don’t want to get lost in the trail of snowy fields.

Snow is never a reason to enjoy your ATV riding as in much fun in the dirt. Follow the basic rules and get prepared for much excitement.

“I want to see the world!” This euphoric set’m sure you have often heard from friends and acquaintances.Maybe you tell yourself again and again even this sentence. Yet often lack the will to implement. Many people talk about the things to pack and the chance to travel around the globe – and then did not make it. Expected only on whether someone can ask yourself and the journey takes up together, can be a never ending story. So now I would like to encourage all who have not dared so far to travel on your own, you pack your things and explore the world! To travel alone is not so bad. I tried this out myself when I traveled to Utah and tried to find things to do in Zion among the towering red monoliths, so I can attest that traveling alone has it’s rewards.

the beautiful people of montreal (cont.) (explore)

We promise! On the contrary, do not miss one of the best experiences in your life and let yourself be convinced of these 5 reasons:

Reason # 1: Absolute freedom enjoy
detachment from family, friends, job and commitments you can experience the freedom in its purest form. It’s just you, your desires and expectations. You are your own boss and decide now what is right and what is wrong. Soak up every day, every hour, every minute of your trip. During this time you are free and you can fully indulge in the moment.

Reason # 2: Discover you new
addition to blisters and countless memories, you’ll see a new “I” also to bring home. Alone on tour you will discover new sides of you. If you put some time on yourself to grow beyond its borders. You will certainly come back a lot more mature and wiser after your solo journey. And you will get to know even better now than before.

Reason # 3: New Crops know
if you traveling as a couple or in a group, you tend to mostly among themselves to stay to themselves. Are you traveling on your own, you have no choice but to mingle with the people. This is the perfect opportunity to experience foreign cultures.You can exchange ideas with local people and learn about the life in the country better.

Reason # 4: Adopt a clear view
As you compete the journey alone, no one can tarnish or manipulate your experiences / experience. Everything that you are experiencing now is, pure and accessible only to you. No conversations with fellow travelers can affect your emotions and perspectives. At the end of the day you save the experience for you and keep them from your personal, untroubled mind.

Reason # 5: Overcoming Fears
Sometimes it is good and helpful, to jump into the cold water. If being alone, lack of coordination and poor knowledge of the card reading to your previous fears are, it is time to suspend this offensive. Are you even on the plane / train and miles worth of your actual home away, you have no choice but to lay this fear. And you’ll feel even more freedom now than already mentioned in # 1: free from fear is life that is much, much better!

Do not let the days pass by with your kids ‘glued’ to the TV, the computer or other activities that do not allow parents to participate. Here are some ideas for activities to do as a family. Put them into practice and see how your children will remember these as an unforgettable holiday.

  • Set a time each day to read with your children. A good idea is to go to the library and let them choose the books they captivate.
  • Perform sports. Kids love hanging out with their parents to the pool, cycling, soccer, or just take a walk.
  • Make a plan to visit places not usually frequented by lack of time, such as museums, amusement parks, botanical gardens, zoos etc..
  • Take the opportunity to take the kids to see children’s movies of the season.
  • Perform manual labor as ceramic or clay modeling, painting, etc..
  • Pull out the board games they can participate in all family members.

The most important is that we launch the holiday something deeply rooted in man, the playfulness of life. The game provides an escape to fight anxiety and frustrations. Through fun activities can express the best of each and share pleasant moments with family.

Remember that the game helps release anxiety and provides the ability to laugh. It is proven that people who play and laugh often very little visiting psychologists and psychiatrists. And what better opportunity to vacation away the stress of work and share all these moments with the children.
