Laura Bush and her entourage showed up in southern Utah the other day; word is they’ll be spending most of the week in the park.

One guest – who only identified himself as “John” – said he and a friend were hiking around the lodge on Sunday and passed the first lady and her party.

“We knew she was in the area,” he said. “We didn’t recognize her [at first], then we stopped and said, ‘Isn’t that her?'”

One worker at the lodge, who declined to identify himself, when asked how things in the Lodge had changed because of Bush’s visit, said jokingly, “If I told you, they’d have to kill me.”

With any luck they’ll find a stunning backdrop for a drilling rig.
