Cedar Breaks National Monument is the perfect place to escape triple digit heat. Plus, the views aren't too shabby either.
At 10,400 ft, it's a little easier to become winded but the 70º temps make up for it.
I learned about the Bristlecone Pine Trees....some of which have been around long before Christ was born on the earth. I can't believe I live so close to something this old, and didn't even know about them.
We strolled along the Alpine Pond and through meadows full of incredible flowers...
The hardest part of break time? Coming home.
