2017, Route 66 Journey

09.14.17 Bryce Canyon in Utah

Bryce Canyon in the winter

Thursday, September 14, 2017 – Bryce Canyon National Park, a sprawling reserve in southern Utah, is known for crimson-colored hoodoos, which are spire-shaped rock formations. The park’s main road leads past the expansive Bryce Amphitheater, a hoodoo-filled depression lying below the Rim Trail hiking path. It has overlooks at Sunrise Point, Sunset Point, Inspiration Point and Bryce Point.  We learned that parking outside the park at Ruby’s Inn to get picked up by a shuttle bus was the best way to get around in the National Park.   Since we are old folks we got in free to this National Park and to ride the Shuttle for free.


There were extraordinary people with the capability of hiking down to the bottom of the canyon.  You can see them in this photo.

This was a beautiful place to visit but even with the shuttle to take us from place to place within the park it was exhausting. Lots of walkways to walk up and then walk down.  Thank goodness for the shuttle!

As we left Bryce Canyon we rode through Red Canyon and lots of other beautiful scenery.  The next blog will contain those photos.

Ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear!
