Monday Memories - A 1964 comparison to current day

Monday Memories
A 1964 comparison to current day

We just returned from a 2 week 'vacation' in southern Utah (Wayne County, Teasdale, Torrey, Capital Reef National Park, etc.) and I realized one of my posts there really should be on this blog.

We revisited the sites of our 1964 trip from St. George, Utah, to Louisville, KY, as I was just finishing up my 3 year Air Force active duty tour, and returning to civilian life. We had our two young daughters, and one place we stopped, and took family photos, was Capital Reef National Monument - not yet a National Park!

Now, for a couple of years, the older of those two girls, Annette, with her husband, Larry, live near Teasdale, about 20 miles from Capital Reef - they see the distinctive 'water pocket fold' - red cliffs - from their east deck!



http://drbillonretirement.blogspot.com/2011/05/first-thursday-1964-comparisons-in.html  is my 'retirement/travel' blog where I recorded our return visit. Please feel free to look around other pages, when you visit.

Following are a couple of the 1964 scans of the July 1964 photos - time has already begun to take it's toll. We enjoyed finding the same spots, the same rock formation - and noting the similarities, and the differences, in 47 years! Check it out.













Families are Forever!  ;-)
