Visit Zion Ponderosa in Beautiful Southern Utah.
Just last month, I had such a wonderful opportunity to experience everything at the Zion Ponderosa Ranch in Southern Utah with the Mom It Forward community and team. I’ve lived in Utah my whole life, and visited Southern Utah multiple times, but this trip to the Zion Ponderosa Ranch was a first.
I have to say if you’ve never visited Southern Utah, you’ve got to add it to your list. It’s just so beautiful and scenic. The diversity in the landscape of our state is pretty amazing. The weekend that I experienced in May was packed full of adventure. I did things I still can’t believe I did, like rappelling down a steep cliff into the most smooth beautiful rock canyon. We went ATV-ing, rappelling and a few got to take a helicopter ride and see the beauty of Zion National Park from above (lucky ducks). It was a weekend to remember that’s for sure! This weekend was for women only, but the Mom It Forward team are doing it again and including the entire family in October.
You’ve got to see this fun video they made of our weekend together:
I would love to return with my family, I know my kids would have a blast! I’m not so sure I could let them do the rappelling without completely freaking out, but most all of the other activities would be so fun for them. Here’s a few more fun pictures from the weekend. I did feel a bit tapped in the helmet on the ATV ride, I’m not gonna lie. I have a fear of being trapped in clothes…haha, but the ride was a blast!
Here’s a quick little 15 second video I shared on Instagram from the weekend.
With my sweet friend Jen of Tatertots and Jello, just after we finished the big rappel.
If your family needs to disconnect and enjoy the outdoors and more time together, this weekend is for you. I so enjoyed my weekend with the wonderful friends I got to share it with, and I would love to take my family back in October.
*A big thanks to the Mom it Forward & Family Forward Team and special sponsors The Dairy Council of Utah & Nevada for the wonderful weekend.
