Since the only plan for the day was to drive back to Zion, we felt we had plenty of time for a morning soak in the spa before we left the inn. It was another stunning morning and the flowers at the lodge were in their glory…morning glory that is. It was a relaxing half hour before we returned to the room to shower and finally make our departure from the Boulder Mountain Inn and south down Highway 12. We didn’t get far though as Sharon though it would be a good idea to stop for the day’s beverages at the little minimart/grocery where the “long haired cute guy” works. Sure, why not. They have a good selection there and I found the lemon/ginger juice that I enjoyed earlier in the trip.
