Founder's Circle Day Four

The last day of our retreat was one of the most memorable.  Some friends and I rented a van and spent the afternoon at Zion National Park.  It was breathtaking! I took almost 200 photos and could easily have had taken more.  I hope to one day go back and take some time exploring all the amazing trails in this incredible park. 

If you are planning a visit to Zion National Park, be sure to check out this fabulous regional guide HERE. You'll find information on each trail, thorough route guides and even GPS coordinates that you can download for free! 

After our time at Zion we headed back to our hotel to get ready for our final event.  We boarded the buses and hit the road and arrived at a ranch, with cowboys waiting to greet us!  

We then enjoyed fun games (cow milkin', archery, lassoing, duck races and more!).  
This Duck race was a hoot!

Our 'Red Vine' team at the 'Milkin' Station'!
We received fun Stampin' Up! product for the game prizes!

Time to get the ropes out for some lassoing!

Gotta have horses at a ranch!

Heading back from the 'Corn Maze'
Our dinner was delicious and the decor was lovely with fresh flowers tucked into crates and bottles everywhere.  After we ate we played some Bingo and then  "The Hired Guns" provided some musical entertainment.

Our lovely evening concluded with Sara Douglass' closing remarks for this year's Founder's Circle Retreat.  It really was an experience that I will never forget!  

And I received one last pillow gift.....

...a beautiful Pandora bracelet with a diamond-studded horseshoe, a symbol for luck!

It will soon be time to head to the airport for a very long day of travel - but I'll have so many wonderful memories to enjoy on the plane ride home!
