Drink of the Day
This drink of the day MUST BE TASTED. It is Ramblin’ Rose Cream Soda. It goes from rose flavored to cream flavored to something else entirely. Try it and let us know what you think!
Our featured guest for this episode is Shaun Saunders of Fremont River Guides in Torrey, Utah. While not originally from the area, he purposely settled between some of Utah’s greatest national parks and loves to show others around the area.
A great time to go visit is during Spring Break. It’s great for families, hiking, photography, jeep tours, kayaking, and more!
Shawn shares with us the importance of having guides, especially in places like slot canyons, and his list of things NOT to save money on: food and the best guides.
Sometimes it’s worth it just to hire a guide to hit up all the great food joints. Here are some of the favorites when it comes to food in Southern Utah:
- Cafe Diablo in Torrey, Utah
- Broken Spur (for steak!) in Torrey, Utah
- Hell’s Backbone Grill in Boulder, Utah – Shaun’s favorite
- Spotted Dog near Zion National Park
- Ray’s Tavern in Green River (listen to Cathy on GoneTrippin Podcast!)
