The Facts of Natalie

Thursday, April 28th, 2011

I virtually grew up with the TV show The Facts of Life, which made its debut in 1979 and ran for nine seasons.

From there, it was about another hour and 15 mintues to get to the gates of Zion National Park. The first thing I noticed upon entering Utah was that cell phone reception became sketchy. I would eventually lose it entirely. This might be because it seemed that almost no one lived in this state! We would travel miles and miles with no sign of civilization, only mountains and mountains – which was actually quite beautiful. Read the rest of this entry »
