Monday July 21st.

As per usual, up at 3am out the door by 4am and in Cedar City 8 hours later and then directly off to the matinee of Taming of the Shrew. Interesting production, placed in Italy as WWII is ending and the male lead is an army officer. The production was very beautiful and technically well executed. There was only one major technical error when a roll-up drop that was to come in for a short scene dropped all the way to the floor. Not major but very obvious indeed.
I always have a problem with the Kate’s ending speech about haw a wife s to be obedient and listen to the master and sovereign of the house….BLAH, BLAH, BLAH! It is a wonderful show and very, very funny.

The drive out was so beautiful. I got a HUGE surprise when I drove over the Colorado River! I did not look closely enough at the map and as I drove over it I was dumb struck and actually had to stop at the visitors center and walk all the way across and back just to witness this gorgeous view!!!

View North of the newer highway bridge
it is pretty much a duplicate of the Southern Bridge that is now just for pedestrians.

Below are the views to the south and then north.
