Bryce Canyon

As we were leaving the Grand Canyon, someone recommended that we take a different route than the one we were planning on taking.  He wanted us to see the Navajo Bridge.  Navajo Bridge is a pair of steel spandrel arch bridges that cross the Colorado River near Lee’s Ferry in northern Arizona.

This view was awesome!  There is also a very unique bathroom facility here that you need to experience:)   Now on to Bryce….

Welcome to Bryce Canyon!

While the Grand Canyon was just immense, Bryce Canyon was simply beautiful!  Bryce Canyon is known for its crimson-colored hoodoos, which are spire-shaped rock formations. The park’s main road leads past the 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. Prime viewing times are around sunup and sunrise.

We stayed at the Bryce Canyon Grand Hotel.  This hotel is a Best Western and was a very nice place to stay.

We drove through Bryce Canyon National Park.  This Park consists of over 37,000 acres of scenic colorful rock formations and desert wonderland.

We just couldn’t get over the beauty of this place.  One of our stops was at Natural Bridge.

There are lots of hiking trails here and one night a portion of our group went on a moon hike.  I stayed behind with a smaller group and we just took pictures of the moon over the canyon.

We really all enjoyed visiting this canyon and had a great time exploring all the wonders it had to offer.

Join me next week as we travel from Bryce to Zion Canyon!!!
