Wow, two days in a row that we have been out the door shortly after 8 AM !!
Our muscles were complaining loudly, but we ignored them, and jumped in the car for the 2 1/2 hour drive to Bryce.
We thought our Zion pass would work here, but it didn't, so we had to purchase a new one.
We went directly to the Visitor's Center and watched the park film.
The shuttle buses will not be operating until May, so we chose to drive our car to the various outlooks.
The views were amazing, but because the sky was overcast, our photos are a little washed out.
The first thing we noticed was that this park is not nearly as busy as Zion National Park.
All I can tell you is that Bryce Canyon is a must do destination.
We heard people talking about Zion and Bryce, and heard different opinions on which was better to tour.
In our opinion, each park offers different perspectives.
Zion is rugged and majestic and overpowers a person.
Bryce is like a giant playground on steroids.
We can't say which is better. It is like asking what is our favorite dessert. You can't choose one !!
If you are in the area, be sure to spend time in each one.
Today we hiked the Navajo Trail, and the Queen's Garden. Absolutely stunning and beyond words.
The hike lasted a little over two hours, but that was with many stops for photos.
We could barely lift our legs into the car when we were finished, but we would not change a single thing.
Tomorrow, we lift the jacks and head a little closer to home.
How fortunate are we to bring home some awesome memories.
