Zion and Bryce

This past September I got to fulfill one of my dreams of visiting Zion National Park. While in Utah I also got to see Bryce Canyon National Park. They were incredible to behold. I would love to go back to Zion and do more hiking. It has made me want to get into shape and visit more national parks.

I also visited Lower Antelope Canyon in Arizona too. It was a beautiful sight to see.

It made me happy that the house I purchased included a lilac bush. Its one of my most favorite smells. 

More Bagels

I think one of my favorite bagel places near me is Maples. They recently decided to switch from gelato and focus on bagel making since they are so good at it. There is always a line out the door on the weekends there. I do love the jalapeño cheddar cream cheese they have.

Mmm Bagel

I had some free time before an oil change so I ventured to South Portland to try 158 Pickett Street Cafe. I wasn't disappointed. They had plenty of bagels to choose from and I decided to change things up and got the Canuck sandwich with cheese, egg and Canadian bacon on an asiago bagel. It was delicious and I do want to go back again and try some of their cream cheese flavors.

In search of a good bagel...

Lately I have been really wanting a good bagel. Living in Maine that may limit the options unlike places like New York, but there are few bakeries in the area that do make a good bagel. I had a lead on a good bagel to try and ventured up to Lewiston to try Forage Market. I was not disappointed. I got a latte and though they were out of the olive cream cheese, the jalapeño cream cheese was a good second choice with my plain bagel. The bagel had a nice taste to it where it wasn't too chewy or crispy when toasted. The cafe had a relaxed atmosphere and I liked their use of pyrex.  I would travel again to Lewiston to go there again for another bagel.
