I went to the very first Tarzan show at Tuacahn Amphitheater May 20th. The weather was perfect, it was beautiful with a lot of green and flowers in full bloom. While we stood waiting to get in to go to our seats I could smell all of the delicious food that they offer now at Tuacahn.

 I could not pass up on the candy nuts that smell like Christmas. I opted for the pecans and they did not disappoint. We sat on the right side of the stage about half way up and there was a little bit of obstructed view, so we missed the ship that was sailing toward the stage but we did get to see the water come down and flood the stage. It is still cool even though I've seen it happen quite a few times in different shows and season.

One of the cool things that happens in live theater, when you get a grateful audience, is the cheering on of the actors and show crew. The second the water hit the stage the audience cheered. I knew it was going to be a good show. When you go to a preview show, they tell you that they could stop the show at any point to correct things of fix cues or adjust props. Not much of that had to happen because the audience cheered even when the scene didn't go exactly right. At one point in the musical, young Tarzan is trying to show off his ingenious invention that is supposed to spear fruit off of a vine while he is swinging high off the ground. He could not get the prop to work right and just kept trying to "stab" the fruit with his spear. Finally the got the fruit to break loose and it fell all the way to the stage. the actors playing Tarzan and Turk, went on as if that is exactly how it was supposed to happen and the audience cheered again. It was a perfect metaphor for life. If everyone around us is trying their best and working hard then we should appreciate it and cheer them on. Even if nothing goes as planned. ♥ Go enjoy a show at Tuacahn. If you cannot afford tickets make sure you listen to DJ & Aaronee in the morning on Cat Country 107.3 & 94.9

Flood watch continues in southern Utah as the thunderstorms continued this week. All of the Snow on the mountains is coming down and it's making our water ways expand and flood. I took a drive to Mesquite this weekend and saw the Virgin River is raging down stream.

The Sevier River has been on flood watch for almost a month. Ash Creek Reservoir, that usually is released to flow down Ash Creek Stream, is beyond full and has breached it's banks by a long shot. The road off of exit 36 on I-15 has been closed for over a month with a detour going back through the neighborhood because the water has overtaken the road.

It is hard to tell unless you've looked at the reservoir before but, the trees are usually feet in the air before the leaves start. Now the leaves are sitting at water level. The water is not just expanding and flooding but it is still incredibly high as well.

As I sat taking pics, I really looked at the beauty of nature. All of the colors look amazing.

This one shows how the road actually disappears. And Check out that tree just sitting on the water.

Here is a closer look. The reflection and colors are just awesome! We also have new visitors that are LOVING all the water.

There are way more ducks and wild turkeys than usual in this part of New Harmony.

This is taken from the bridge, looking east, that is usually dry or a very little stream. Just so much water. It's still moving so not a lot of extra bugs......yet.

And here is the view looking west from the same bridge. Again those tree leaves are usually not that close to the water.

This area straight up looks like a swamp. This is normally where residents enter the dry creek bed to use their ATV's.

One more photo so show the color and reflection cause I think it's purty. ;)

So be safe and steer clear of flooded areas to travel on. If you have any awesome pics you would like to share, just email them to me @ aaronee@townsquaremedia.com
