    Cute! I love wilderness adventures…. and R sounds like a total dude – anyone that can produce perfectly halved apples and teeny tiny froggies is ALL GOOD with me.

    AWESOME scenery.

  2. Lexi

    Good for you, bella. Love reading about your fun times.x

  3. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    I loved this post so much Hannah 🙂 It sounds like an incredible day and these pictures are gorgeous – sometimes I wish life could be all about exploring the wilderness with apples and chocolate and cool water swirling around your feet. I’m glad you took the chance and I’m glad R proved his worth!

    OMG if it wasn’t such a good ending I might have smacked your little tushy for being so easily trustworthy! ANGLE BABE! BE CAREFUL!!! xoxoxoxoxoxox

    Nicely said msihua … Particularly given recent Melbourne events …

    But this is a great post Hannah. Zion is a truly magical place with colours I’ve never forgotten … But one day R must experience Uluru and Watarrka and the rock art of Kakadu. He ‘d love them. So glad you’d finally posted Zion!

    Ahh, choccy, you remind me of the joy and beauty in the world. That’s a good thing. Please continue.

    What a glorious day! I’m so glad you took the leap.

    I hope you didn’t tell you mother you did this! LOL!

    I do agree though – one of the best nights I had in Italy was thanks for taking an invitation from a stranger to buy white truffles and go to dinner. Divine.

    Oooh, I know the apple mystery! I know! But I shan’t tell you, because it’s much better as a magical mystery.

    Zion’s so lovely, isn’t it? I’d love to get back and explore more off the well-worn tourist path. Some sunshiney day! Now put your hands up oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh oh oh!

    It looks absolutely gorgeous but I see you’ve embraced the stetson instead of an Akubra on your travels…?

    Oh, and R is cute too!

  11. Camille

    I adore Zion. So happy that you got to see it with a (fortunately) trustworthy guide! Also, you are adorable in that hat, but that tiny frog might be even cuter. 🙂

  12. Em

    Yay for Zion! I am glad you took a chance and got to experience its beauty, I loved it as well. And we saw the shoe tree too!

    On a side note, you are on my really-must-email-this-person-because-I-am-a-slacker-and-have-not-communicated-with-them-for-far-too-long list. So hopefully I will get around to that soon. 🙂

    I love these stories. They are for me filed under “to tell parents once the events are long past”.
    What a gorgeous place. It reminds me a bit of far northern Argentina. Yay for adventures, I’m loving hearing yours.

    Gorgeous Hannah.

    You are an inspirational and amazing lady my dear. Stay safe and brave xo

  15. Heather @ Sweetly Raw

    What a fun adventure with a new friend girlie! Loving all the pics. That shoe tree is hilarious!!!

  16. Alisa

    Aw, what fun! You are in my country now! Glad you like the breathtaking desert mountains. I can’t live without them anymore 🙂

  17. Sarah B @ Bake + Bike

    Whoaa spectacular…love the shoe tree, tiny frog, and vanilla pine! Hope your adventures in Canada can live up to this 🙂

    It is magnificent! Of great landscapes! That makes dream… 🙂

  20. Hotly Spiced

    You are too funny, Hannah! Beyonce would be proud of you! And I’m so glad R is so wonderful. You wouldn’t want to run into an Ivan Milat xx

  21. Ali

    Great post…and glad you had such a fabulous day!

  22. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Ooh a new adventure with a new friend! How exciting!! And rocks should be scented, all of them! 😛

  23. leaf (the indolent cook)

    What an excellent adventure, the views are indeed spectacular. How nice that you met someone like R!

  24. Johanna GGG

    looks amazing – you gotta take risks – especially when travelling by yourself or you end up very lonely – and instincts are very valuable when travelling

  25. Liz

    Hannah this looks amazing! sorry haven’t been in touch lately- sounds like you are having a great time. Keep enjoying yourself! Thinking of you! x

  26. Louise

    I’m hopelessly behind on your adventures yet again. How wonderful this day looks. It must seem like a dream now that you are in the grips of Canada being plunged into winter I expect. Whereas here we are being plunged into summer way too early. It does look a gorgeous place. That second photo is incredible. The fourth one looks like it could be a gorge in NT or WA. I share your wonder at apple splitting in the wild.
