Bryce Canyon

Bryce Canyon National Park is a national park located in southwestern Utah in the United States. The major feature of the park is Bryce Canyon which, despite its name, is not a canyon but a giant natural amphitheater created by erosion along the eastern side of the Paunsaugunt Plateau.

After a incredible day at Bryce Canyon National Park we drove for 6 hours and finally arrived in Flagstaff, Arizona. This will be our base for 2 nights to discover the Grand Canyon South Rim before we venture West to Las Vegas for the very last days of our glorious trip.
Look at what just two years can do to boys: Bryce Canyon 2012 and GSMNP last Saturday.

Bryce Canyon National Park by radradrudy
I have just spent the last 24 days with the best tour guide ever - Tom. He planned the most wonderful vacation I have ever taken and we had simply the best time sight seeing!!! We drove over 6,000 miles traveling thru FL, AL, LA, TX, NM, CO, UT, AZ, GA and home. 2 nites in San Antonio TX to see Riverwalk and the Alamo, 2 nites in Truth or Consequences NM for 2 wonderful days of relaxing in the mineral hot springs overlooking the Rio Grande river (springs were 104 up to 109 degrees). Then went and climbed 1/2 mile sraight up this mountain to the Gila Cliff dwellings and then of course 1/2 mile down. Got to go to our property in NM and spend the day with our great friends Karen & Bill where we met up with neighbors Luanne & Jay. It is so beautiful there and so peaceful - love it!!! On to Moab Ut where we spent 3 nites at the historic Apache Hotel while we toured National Parks - Canyonland, Arches, Bryce Canyon then to Capital Reef and Zion National Park. Next was Carlsbad Caverns were we watched the bats . ...
I do believe that Bryce Canyon is one of the most beautiful places on earth!!! It literally took my breath away and the altitude didn't help. I am so blessed to be taking this journey with my awesome husband. He is the one who said I must see these places... I am so glad we did! I truly want to come back to see more!
Um, we want to be at Bryce Canyon too! hippietrash rocking her Longhorn & Setting Stone necklaces in…

Get to Know Your Colorado Plateau Flora - The Douglas Fir: When I think of Douglas Fir on the Plateau, I think about the beautiful specimens among the tall walls of the Wall Street Trail in Bryce Canyon National Park, UT (photograph by Zack Frank). Pseudotsuga menziesii, is not a true fir, instead it is in a separate genus in of itself. This widespread conifer occurs often in pure stands as well as mixed forests. This species has narrow pyramidal tops and long straight trunks. In places where sunlight and water are sufficient, branches may extend almost to the ground. In less optimal locations (like Wall Street), Douglas-firs will self-prune so that the lower 1/3 to 1/2 of the long trunk is usually devoid of branches. The bark is generally a dark reddish-brown. Mature trees have extremely thick bark, as much as 10 inches near the base of the trunk. Douglas Fir often get mixed up with Ponderosa Pine or Spruce trees, but a surefire way to identify them is by the cones. They have a structure in the cone call ...

On our way back home. Gonna make a stop by Bryce Canyon on the way. Expect pictures. :D
Day 7 & 8 (Part 1) - On the road..Zion to Bryce Canyon. Had us a proper adventure..saw buffalo on the road out, then driving through Glendale met the lovely Bill Spencer and his amazing collection of cars..found various abandoned cabins..eventually got to Bryce to find out we had nowhere to stay for the night so camped out under the stars cowgirl style at Ruby's Campground. Got no sleep in the car (temperatures drop to nearly minus)..up at 5am next morning for canyon sunrise.
Back in Vegas after guiding a 7 day REI Adventures trip in Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks. Only 4 more days until it's Upper Klamath raftin' time with my Dad, Antonio Ricardo, Ryan Stokes and Jesse Cassidy!!!

Page Az tomorrow and float trip Tuesday! Peace!
Paula and I went on a short two day vacation. While touring Bryce Canyon we noticed that each pull out had a raven and each raven was semi tame and wanted to be fed.
We flew back last night from our three week trip out west. It was great. We started in the Mojave Desert, Went to Yosemite and the High Sierras, back to Bryce Canyon again, Zion, Monument Valley,Painted Desert, Canyon DeChelly again, Sonoran Desert, North rim of Grand Canyon (so much better than south rim). We discovered several neat little towns that most people have never heard of like Wickenburg, AZ, hiked a bunch in canyons and on mountains, saw a zazillion petroglyphs and several Indian ruins. will post pics soon. Busy doing laundry today!
View From The Front Porch-Stan Hitchcock Memorial Day Weekend is just special to me, as I remember friends and family that served proudly, and some that never came home. I have told all my Navy stories before, but, ya’know, an old Soldier, Airman, Marine, Coast Guard or Navy vet tends to go on about his time in service. It’s because, for most of us, we were just kids out of high school, and we had to grow up fast in those times. To me, and most all the other vets that I know, those years were a special time…… Being an old Navy man, I have experienced the fury of a storm at Sea. I rode out a Typhoon, twice, in the far off China Sea, in 1955, and again in Tokyo Bay in 1957. My ship, the USS Bryce Canyon (AD-36), was anchored outside of Yokosuka, Japan, when we got the word to rig the ship for heavy seas and be ready to get under way to head out to Sea to ride out a coming storm. Now, when I heard storm, I was thinking in Midwestern terms, you know.severe thunderstorms, maybe an isolated torna ...
We had a wonderful group of 21 people on the Parks of the Southwest trip. It was a nice variety of weather (?) through Zion, Bryce Canyon, Grand Staircase Escalante, Capitol Reef, Arches, Canyonlands, Mesa Verde, Four Corners, Monument Valley, Goosenecks of the San Juan, and Grand Canyon. Thanks To everyone!
We are going to The Arches, The Canyon Lands, Capitol Reef, Bryce Canyon, Zion, Mesa Verde and Garden of the Gods. Get out and support our National Parks!

Just returned from Monument Valley, Grand Canyon, Zion and Bryce Canyon. I am amazed by the beauty of these places.
leaving California on Thursday. Off to Vegas to see the pawn stars, then to Bryce Canyon. To the beach tomorrow.
We are in Cedar City Utah getting ready to head to Bryce Canyon.
Back from "Lost Wages". No richer or poor but gratified to have a great week of fun and enjoyment with colleagues and new friends. "Cousin Eddy" located me at the Luxor but fortunately Chris and I were able to steer clear. Loved the hoodoos at Bryce Canyon. Beautiful!
Any recommendations for things to see on a road trip from SF to Bryce Canyon?
Today at Sunset Point, Bryce Canyon, Utah taken with my htc one (don't worry, I also brought my d90/tokina 11-16)
Its NOON in Kerrville, Texas.logged 2,100 miles to get here..spent a month here...Finally getting some much needed rain/drizzle.Fire danger is high. 3 more days and we will be heading North thru N.M and into corner of colorado/utah.to Bryce Canyon then to the Wyoming area. Yellowstone Nat. park is 1,500 miles away... A little humor .As we live on the Canadian border...polish jokes are pretty true to heart...done that ,been there.:) Polish Moose Hunt Two Polish hunters named Stosh and Thad, hired a pilot to fly them into the Canadian wilderness, where they managed to bag two big Bull Moose. As they were loading the plane to return, the pilot said the plane could take only the hunters, their gear and one Moose. The hunters objected, saying, "Last year we shot two, and the pilot let us take them both...and he had exactly the same airplane as yours." Reluctantly the pilot, not wanting to be outdone by another bush pilot, gave in and everything was loaded. However, even under full power, the little plane ...
A3. Best program I ever attended was at Phantom Ranch at the bottom of the Canyon, or Bryce Canyon stargazing.
Spring Break Highlights: 1. Approaching Vegas in stop-and-go rush hour traffic, we are rear-ended by a nice guy named Jonathan. Minor bumper damage. Rear door still works. 2. Will they really rent a 25' RV to any person with a license, no large vehicle experience necessary? Turns out they do it all the time. 3. Emmett brings his fart sound effect machine to the Vegas strip. He cuts loud farts strolling down the sidewalk, in the Eiffel Tower elevator, and on the observatory deck. Bemused reactions. 4. We arise early to see the sunrise over the Grand Canyon on a video screen at the Visitor Center at around 11 am. 5. Triple whammy. Dinosaur footprints, Navajo Bridge, Panguitch. 6. After a morning throwing snowballs in Bryce Canyon, two hours and 5000 feet lower, we are wearing shorts and wading in the Virgin River near Zion. 7. With an oversize vehicle we get special treatment in the old Zion Canyon tunnel. We lead a caravan 25 mph down the center strip, the only light from our headlights and the occasional ...
had a chuckle tonight when I was just sitting in front of my home page and realized the 2 pictures with Rob and Justine on the steps and Bob and I at Bryce Canyon are certainly the "wonderful young" and the "desperate old".Bob and I were close to their age when we dated the first time.time DOES fly! I hope they realize that and take advantage of every minute.
Just booked a hotel to spend a little vacation time with Hector and Rebekah Evelyn Jimenez in May! Can't wait to relax a few minutes at the pools in Las Vegas, show Jannik and Kian the musical fountains, let Jannik get super excited about seeing real white tigers, and MOST OF ALL I get to see Bryce Canyon, Monument Valley, Lake Powell,... My dream finally comes true! Any suggestions which other National Park is a must-see?
An abstract interpretation of the majesty of Bryce Canyon. 'Impressionistic Hoodoos' - via
The 5 National Parks (Arches, Bryce Canyon, Canyonlands, Capital Reef & Zion) in Utah is a good reason.
Tauck’s most popular trip, year after year, is America’s Canyonlands. John and I experienced it firsthand in September with some old friends. The Canyons We had been to the Grand Canyon before, but most of the rest was new for us. The heart of the trip is three great National Parks of the American West – Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon and Zion. Tauck takes you behind-the-scenes with filmed narratives by Ken Burns and Dayton Duncan. The Highlights Aerial sightseeing over Monument Valley is a contender. You will recall every John Ford western scene and understand why it is much better to fly over this landscape than drive through it. Cruising Lake Powell was spectacular. It winds on forever with cliffs and canyons around each turn. But my personal favorite was a float trip on the Colorado River, starting at the Glen Canyon Dam. Start in Scottsdale at the Four Seasons Resort at Troon North Tauck is adding an additional day at the Four Seasons starting this year, so you can add some high class relaxation to ...

I haven't been to the Grand Canyon in Years. I think I am going to attempt getting there this weekend... Walk the new look out . If not that, I am definitely hitting up Sedona, Arizona. Hm... I was actually more impressed with Bryce Canyon, but still would like to go back to GC...

Day 26 of 30-I'm thankful for my travel experiences-snorkeling in St. Thomas, boating and watching friends scuba dive in Jamaica, watching dancers with castinettes in Puerto Rico, touring Haiti as a child opened my mind and heart to missions, climbing Mt. Pisgah with natural portapotties, spending a day in DC is never enough, taking in the grandeur of the Grand Canyon, racing through Yellowstone in one gate and out the other side (was I with mom and dad or granddaddy Strange?) walking in Memphis, experiencing Graceland, Zion National Park is gorgeous, Bryce Canyon, four wheeling around hills overlooking Flathead Lake, visiting family in Columbus, admiring polar bears at the Columbus Zoo, catching Reds baseball games in Cincinnati, flying in a helicopter over Blue Ridge Mountains...so many places I've seen, so many still to see. I'm grateful for all the experiences and memories.
So I missed Macklemore by one day and a 4 hour drive, missed A.F.I. by one day on the drive home, but it's okay.This trip has been incredible, rejuvenating and enlightening.From the Shariras and Buddhist Monk at the Lu Mountain Temple to conversing with strangers and skateboarding in downtown L.A. to hanging out with my best friends from high school and raging at the clubs until 5 AM.From hiking in the most amazing place I have ever been at Zion National Park and staying overnight in Bryce Canyon to jumping in a 45 degree river (twice!!!). Seeing all of my family on my Mm's side to visiting my Grandma on my Dad's side.I jumped in every one of my aunt's swimming pools too. So much good food and Brews at Umami Burger, Dickey's BBQ Pit, Barista's Steak and Fish Grill, Ruby's Lodge, Zion Brewpub, Pizza Factory, Lucille's BBQ, Del Taco, etc. Now I'm going to ride a bike around Mayberry and take some photos.ALOHA!!!
You think they'd know, they're Americans right? Telling us we can't do something isn't the best idea. So we can't open the National Parks can we? Well today the Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon and Zion National Parks are OPEN!!! So Washington maybe when someone tells you CAN"T balance the budget, you should stand up, be Americans and say WATCH US!

What do you do when the government ruins the vacation you've been planning for two years. Go to Las Vegas! Was supposed to go to Bryce canyon and Zion National Parks. Take the politics out of government!
So, have you heard what's going on in the USA? They closed all their National Parks because Democrats and Republicans are having a debate over the ObamaCare law which led to Republicans voting against the bill which led to the fact that 800,000 federal workers did not get paid thus making them shutdown all National Parks and some other state stuff. I really don't care about what's happening in the congress and their troubles... I just care about the fact that I was supposed to see the Grand Canyon today but didn't, because of the shutdown of all National Parks... So now I am stuck in the middle of somewhere surrounded by all these wonderful National Parks in Arizona/Utah like the Bryce Canyon and Grand Canyon and still can't go to any of them. Lucky for me, not all wonderful things belong to the government, and there's a very nice place called the Antelope Canyon that is being owned by native Americans that didn't take part of the shutdown... I went there and saw it, and it's AMAZING! I am sharing some pi ...
National Parks closed took detours to other places today near to edge of Bryce Canyon. Still lots of amazing things to see.
All Rides are open. Ruby's Horseback Adventures is not effected by the Gov't Shutdown. Come take a ride with us, see the Northern Part of Bryce Canyon. Also available Rides to Scenic Red Canyon. Horse Riding not your thing try a wagon ride to the Rim of Bryce Canyon. Don't change your plans because of the Gov't, still plenty to see and do in the Bryce Canyon area.
We are still 100% open for business. We hope that Bryce Canyon will not be closed for long and we pray that a resolution may be reached quickly. Meanwhile, please come and enjoy your stay at Bryce Canyon Pines, have a delicious meal at our restaurant, and take a horse ride into the beautiful Red Canyon.
Yosemite done fantastic walk to 2 waterfalls just driven through Death Valley a little warm here at Furnace Creek but air con keeping pace thankfully.Back on the road at 7 am to Bryce Canyon and Zion.

I was gonna go to Bryce Canyon this weekend but now I can't because all the National Parks are closed... Eff da government
Dag Blasted politicos... Spent the night researching secondary sites (STATE parks) that won't be affected by the budget shutdown. The plans for a tour of Zion, Bryce Canyon, Arches, Mesa Verde and the Grand Canyon are in jeopardy because all of those parks are shut down, with local authorities preventing entrance to these iconic sites. Any suggestions as to alternate locations?
The view from my office today... Bryce Canyon, Canyonlands, and Niagra Falls from 37,000 feet... I love my job!
9/27/13. Travels with Annie Thanks for all your replies, we enjoy hearing from you. We woke up to snow on cars and trees. It is 25 outside. A cup of hot coffee is welcomed. We traveled from Brian Head, UT to Bryce Canyon National Park. It was very cold and windy. It did get up to 57 for a little while but very windy. We were still able to enjoy the beautiful canyon. In Bryce park you drove on the rim, so you could see down into all the beauty. It was breathtaking. We spent the day enjoying the park. We took HWY 12 to HWY 24. The drive was spectacular. We had a large herd of Prong Horns run across the road in front of us and lots of open range cows that you had to look out for. We had reservations at a RoadWay Inn in Caineville,UT for one night and was very lucky to get it. That was the only room left and the only night available. We drove right by our motel. That's because the population was 35. It was clean and the young family that owned it were delightful. if you think we seem a little disorgani ...
Feeling rather frustrated with Americas shutdown of all their Federal agencies. We are in Utah, about to visit the wonderful National Parks, Zion, Bryce Canyon and others then onto Grand Canyon in Nevada but are not able too. Also all the great National Forest Service parks are closed. It is the unknown of how long this is going on for, do we hang about hoping that they will see some sense and sort it out, or move onto other areas and not get to see these wonderful places.

I went to Rocky Mountains. It was awesome... Huh. Of course, Bryce Canyon was more better than Rocky Mountains..but Rocky Mountains were more better than i thought...:) I am planning to go skydiving next month...and then i will go to see aurora in Yellow Knife I should be likely to save money from now on...:D
Hiking among the hoodoos - Bryce Canyon! With Mary Jack Mayer and Joe Joe Mayer
Trying to think of all the National Parks I've visited: The Great Smoky Mountains, Acadia National Park, The National Mall, D.C., The Everglades, Big Bend National Park, Rocky Mountain National Park, Zion National Park, Yosemite National Park, Sequoia National Park, The Grand Canyon, The Petrified Forest, Yellowstone National Park, The Badlands, Mt. Rushmore, Bryce Canyon, Canyonlands, Capital Reef National Park, Death Valley, and Hot Springs National Park. I drove to them all, many with four little children in tow and a wife being a great sport about it all. I've been to a many other National Monuments, National Recreation Areas, National Forests, and other public lands. I can say that I am nearly an expert on the public lands experience in this country. Despite the Park Service doing a wonderful job preserving our national treasures (the first responsibility), this step of closing off parks to the public is criminal. These are our lands. I get it that visitor centers might close. I get it that formal ca ...
Utah has at least 3, Zion, Arches, and Bryce Canyon
All this politicians better get their crap together before my trip to Bryce Canyon!
Had a great vacation with Janice Winter. Got to spend time with my sister, Michelle Stowell Laraway and her husband and kids. So fun! We also got to visit Zion and Bryce Canyon in southern Utah. So Beautiful! But it's great to back and see the kids. Thanks Jamie Schade for taking such good care of them and our house.
Welcome from USA and I guess you have all heard about the political situation and close down of government here. So, we were to visit Grand Canyon and stay at a hotel in the Grand Canyon National Park but it is now closed. so we are staying tonight at Sedona and not visiting Grand Canyon - very disappointing. Just grateful we were able to get a hotel to stay at as about mid morning we had not where to stay tonight? But we are able to helicopter over the Grand Canyon tomorrow afternoon but Bryce Canyon is out and staying there is also out so we are heading to Las Vegas for 3 nights instead of 2 and trying to do a day trip from Las Vegas to the part of the Grand Canyon controlled by the Native Indians instead of the Federal Parks Department. All Tv news is about the situation here with lots of Governmnet employees stood down and heaps of tourists and businesses disrupted. We have 4 Americans on trip and they they are extermely embarrassed about what is happening - people on our trip from Australia, NZ, Mala ...

Sept 23, Monday, got a 7:30 AM start from Bryce Canyon heading to Monument Valley. About an hour of backtracking. 32 degrees! Arizona, stopped at Lake Powell in Glen Canyon Recreational area. Glen Canyon Dam. Page Arizona. Walmart stop. Stock up for last of trip. Yeah, we gained an hour in Arizona, but not sure where we will be when we swing back into UT! LOL
The Freedom Tour has returned to Las Vegas after the government shutdown has forced us to alter our Canyonlands excursion. We were able to visit the Grand Canyon and Zion National Parks, but had to scrub the Bryce Canyon stop. Oh well, add an extra day in Vegas!
They closed Bryce Canyon but we still have a way to see it. Across Ruby's the road 5 min drive and you can see the canyon. 10 min walk
Today we woke up to the disappointment that the government shutdown would affect our trip! All National Parks closed and this was to be our day to hike down into Bryce Canyon. We changed plans and did manage to get two hikes down. When leaving the first trail we were greeted by lots of park rangers as well as a swarm of tourists want to enter the trail. Apparently they closed the trail after we had entered! We then moved on to another are called Red Rock Canyon and completed that hike. Great weather and a terrible congress! *** being a tourist in the near future in the US!
Well I am meeting my sisters in Vegas tomorrow cant wait HA HA on to Bryce Canyon and Mt Zion National Parks. Been planning this for a year *** cant believe they will be closed!!!

Great hike in Autumn-like conditions in Bryce Canyon, Utah
Yes - absolutely a shame. I was very fortunate to go there - same with Bryce Canyon and Zion Nat'l Park.
In 5 days my plans to visit Grand and Bryce Canyon, Zion, Arches, Mesa Verde National Parks could be ruined, thanks USA.
Got into Bryce Canyon Nat park by the skin of our teeth. Managed to get one big hike in before they closed the trails as well as the Parks due to gov't shut down of non essential services :(( We can stay til Oct 3 then they boot us out. Everyone fine and enjoying it. Yes, even mom!! Love to all!
View of Bryce Canyon after Navajo Loop & Queen's Garden Trail (3.5 mi. hike)- out of this world! ..Bryce Canyon, Utah
thank you all for the birthday wishes. had a great time and now relaxing by the pool. nice weather here. Everyone should see Bryce Canyon at least once. it's awesome.bonnie
Bryce Canyon release is closing in: just packed the internal 0.99 beta to test the AIW adjustments. Still, AIW is not perfect, but enough for me to have fun duelling DRM Capri vs AI in the same Capri neck a neck for ten laps. :)
The Gov't has closed our nearby National Parks and Cedar Breaks National Monument, however there are alternatives. Scenic Drives on Hwy 143, 148 and SR-9 are still open to thru traffic only. As an alternative to Bryce Canyon - Red Canyon offers short hikes and red rock. Don't forget our many state parks: Frontier Homestead State Park Museum, Snow Canyon, Kodachrome, Anasazi State Park, Sand Hollow, Gunlock Reservoir, Quail Lake and the Petrified Forest.
: Chris, there are a bunch of great destinations in the Bryce area you might want to check out.
Markus, we're sorry you've traveled so far to find a locked gate. Here are alternate options for Bryce.
I need to go stargazing in Bryce Canyon National Park with a qt3.14
In lieu of the Bryce Canyon NP. Closure it is eminent that our Summer Season will be terminated early. No decisions have been made yet. However if you were wanting to see the -G one last time before we close, you had better make plans soon. We will keep you posted.
Going to 4 wheel it to the rim of Bryce Canyon since the front gate is closed 󾌪
Looks like this will be the closest I will get to Bryce Canyon.
All politics aside, Natasha and I had two major trips planned for multiple National Parks in the next few weeks, the first of which was a giant trip to Utah to stay in Zion (and a day trip to Bryce Canyon) we had been planning all summer. The second of which was a return trip to Joshua Tree, and we were going to bring her wonderful daughter Spencer there for the first time. So if the government could go ahead and get this all worked out sooner rather than later, that would be great, thanks!
Shame on you US gov! We came all the way from Europe to Bryce Canyon and all we saw was a closed gate, all NP are closed :-(
Really looking forward to our visit to Bryce Canyon and Zion National Parks this week. Only problem is that both are closed due to the fiasco in Washington.
This is all I'll say about the gov shutdown: They better get their stuff in order b/c I'm going to Bryce Canyon Oct 11th.
I dont really mind that the last 3.5 days of my season are in jeopardy with the Shutdown, the last project of the season was terrible. However, Id be vastly disappointed if my plans of cruising through Zion NP, Bryce Canyon, Rocky Mountain NP, and a cadre of other public lands on my way back East doesnt work. Come on, guys...
Thank you government for shutting down all National Parks and monuments across the U.S. this morning, just in time for our trip across country. At least we got in last night and woke up to an amazing sunrise in Bryce Canyon, Utah! Next stop...Colorado!
Jetzt besuchen wir den wunderschönen Bryce Canyon! Now we'll visit the wonderful Bryce Canyon!
It isn't easy to run a tour in Bryce Canyon National Park when it is closed.
Thanks to the government shutdown, our vacation plans got flushed. No seeing Glacier National Park tomorrow; no seeing Bryce Canyon & Zion next week. No National Monuments, either. Very disappointing. Trying to come up with a plan B (sigh)
:-( and I had plans to goto Bryce Canyon NP.
Looking ahead, the current government shut-down could force us to cancel our second grade field trip to Bryce Canyon this Thursday (Oct 3). As a part of the shut-down, National Parks will be closed, potentially preventing us from visiting the park as currently planned. As for now, we are still planning to go, but please be advised that the cancellation of the field trip is a possibility. We will await to see the status of the shut-down on Wednesday and make a decision from there. Thanks, Mr. Fails
Today is Yosemite National Park's 123rd birthday. Although it was our third national park to be officially established (thanks to the efforts of John Muir), and although the park service itself wasn't formally established until August 25, 1916, Yosemite was the first park to lay the foundation of the national park service with a land grant given in 1864 by Abraham Lincoln. This park is home to 3 groves of Giant Sequoias, absolutely majestic trees that stand as a great lesson in perseverance. They exist only in specific parts of the western Sierra Nevada mountains, they are the world’s largest tree (by volume; some other species get wider or taller, but none are overall as massive), they are one of the longest-living species of tree on the planet and can live to be over 3,000 years old, and they thrive on fire and through the assistance of “damage” from beetles and squirrels. While the recent rim fire that began on August 17 (which, by the way, is still burning – it was declared 92% contained yeste ...

Our trip is not what we planned, nor are we alone, 100's of thousands of other tourists are making the same decisions as us today ... New plans! (And sadly almost a million americans are not working or being paid today ... Except the senators or course, *rolling my eyes in exasperated manner*)
Please be advised that the National Parks including Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park, Cedar Breaks...

So much for Bryce Canyon this weekend.
Ladybug rocked the Bryce Canyon Endurance Ride in LD's. She finished first and BC on Day 1, BC on Day 3 and overall fastest time and overall BC. This was a tough but beautiful ride and we really enjoyed ourselves. Moab here we come. :)
Shasa and I are almost at Denver and will head on to Arches National Park and Bryce Canyon on our way across to San Francisco. This will be our first two site seeing days of the trip Its all work over here!!! Had a good visit with Fabricas Selectas yesterday. Thats where we get all our playing marbles from.
Guess who booked a trip in two weeks to visit California and Utah to see Yosemite, Sequoia, Death Valley, Grand Canyon, and Bryce Canyon National Parks? I did! And the government just shut them all down...my timing is always impeccable!
My fav was Bryce Canyon but then I went to Zion and WOW. They are all so different but yet so beautiful!
We had a great time riding the shuttle around Bryce Canyon and planned on hiking today but I have read that all National Parks and monuments are closed immediately ! *** congress! Now to find something else to do today. I ams sure glad this was to be our last park visit on our cross country trip! We may still try and get in.
Sept. 22 after the scenic drive, we went to the Red Canyon area that we drove through more quickly on our way to Bryce Canyon. Also amazing! As you can see we start early and keep a fast pace.
Greetings from Zion National Park. This was to be the first day of the next three visiting Zion, Bryce Canyon, and Arches National Parks in Utah. Thank you Harry Reid and Barack Hussein Obama. And yet please Republicans DON'T CAVE AND STAND UNITED AND STRONG
Getting up at 5.30 in the morning to get the message that the government shutdown and all National Parks are closed! No Grand Canyon , Bryce Canyon, Antelope Canyon for me this time in America
OK, good WIFI in New Mexico. Will go back to Sept. 21. Bryce Canyon. Went on a moderate/strenuous hike called Queens/Navaho. (Sunrise to Sunset). Several miles first down into the magnificent rock formations and then back up.
Couple more shots of Capitol Reef NP before heading for Escalante Stairstep NM and Bryce Canyon NP.
How sad that we won't be able to visit Bryce Canyon today and Grand Canyon tomorrow because of the US shutdown. Planned the trip for more than a year, but never considered this possibility. You can say many things about the South African government, but I can't see them shutting down Kruger Park for tourists flying halfway around the world because they can't agree on healthcare policy.
Supposed to do Bryce Canyon today, but due to the 'shutdown', we'll see. Not going to be very happy if we miss it because the government can't plan their spending.

A neighbour saw the Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon and Zion last week for the first time on a bicycle deal. He just made the cut.
Two more National Parks to see before we come home (Bryce Canyon and the Grand Canyon). Not looking likely now due to the government problems over here. We were doing a horse ride in Bryce today but I doubt if it's going to happen now. :(
USA in shutdown, that's our holiday next week ruined! No Bryce Canyon, Zion Park or Grand Canyon unless it's over really quick!

Hey friends...today's the last day you can vote for my Park Tip about Bryce Canyon. Remember, all votes become entries in a drawing for a free train trip to the Grand Canyon. Thank you all for your votes! -Glenn
Visited Red Rock Canyon and Bryce Canyon today for another spectacular sunny day in Utah. Back for a few more trails in Zion tomorrow.
Just got home last night from an amazing road trip, a little over 2500 miles. Don and I took off the 10th. First stop Vegas. Don hadn't seen the new Pat Tillman Bridge yet out at Hoover Dam. Stayed 2 nights, and left for St George UT. Zion Nat'l Park, Bryce Canyon, Snow Canyon,. After 3 nights in St. Geo, on to Lake Powell. Then South to Grand Canyon, Lake Havasu CA where my folks always spent the winter, then last stop on our nostalgic portion of the trip, was California Hot Springs. In the early to mid 60s my folks Managed the town. Sadly about 3 years after they left and came back to Hollister, the little historic town caught fire. The only thing that survived was the original Skating Rink and the large pool fed by the hot springs. During our wanderings, we were in numerous Indian Reservations. WONDERFUL WONDERFUL TIME. Saw some beautiful handiwork of God. In fact, it is my opinion that HE WORKED OVERTIME WHEN HE MADE BRYCE CANYON. That was hands down my FAVE ! GOD IS GOOD !
We've launched on iOS with Arches, Bryce Canyon, Zion, and Dixie National Forest! Enhance your experience!

Try to get into the Lodge in the park if you can. If you can't, the Bryce Canyon Resort hotel is ok.
Even with rain all around us, the Bryce Canyon Amphitheater is breathtaking.

By far the best breakfasts so far! Should you plan a trip to Bryce Canyon I strongly recommend this lovely place.
Bryce Canyon + the massive pie at Bryce Canyon Pines restaurant (Hwy 12,m10) are musts.

Bryce Canyon - dreamed of visiting since I was a kid. It was even more gorgeous than expected!
As in what Bryce Canyon is full of.
Been pretty well hoodooed at Bryce Canyon the past couple of days.
4th of July fun and Kingston's first hike was Bryce Canyon. It was my first time there and I was in awe the entire time. That place is incredible.
Flying back tonight from a nice vacation in the beautiful state of Utah. Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon was out of this world incredible!

Some pics from Bryce Canyon. A rainy day today. Hopefully some hiking thru the canyon tomorrow.
Time to prep some meals for the week and Saturday is half marathon of the year!! BRING IT ON!
Today again a long beautiful drive from Page AZ to Huricane UT via Bryce Canyon.
It's Sunday. Bryce Canyon National Park. It's pouring rain, but we saw part of it. Hopefully, it won't be wet tomorrow! It was 56 degrees up there.
I love Bryce Canyon. I could live here.
on guard for Penokee mines, because the powers that be know the people are very against the mining there, it is mining profits versus the environment, rivers, lakes, wetlands, groundwater and other natural resources in the Penokee Range in northern Wisconsin.
Getting hyped for the football vacation.. Seattle to wyoming to texas for the rangers vs twins game. Then from arlington to austin for the horns game.. Lunch in san antonio.. Off to new mexico, phoenix, bryce canyon, salt lake city and the horns byu game, then head home!!!
First LA, then Las Vegas, after that Bryce Canyon and now Lake Powell. 4 States in 6 days! Now waiting to check in..
Must be around my 30th visit to Zion, and I'm still amazed every time. If you have not seen this place you need to put it on your list.
Back to reality tomorrow. What a great week out West. Four National Parks in a week. Bill Manning you are an amazing man. Thanks for a wonderful vacation!
We made it back from our trip to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and Bryce National Park. What a wonderful trip! We all had a fantastic time. As we were entering both parks, we got hailed on but after a few minutes the weather cleared and it did not deter us in the least. Last week was close to 120 here in Queen Creek and up there it sank down to the 40's for a while at the Grand Canyon. Most of the time it was in the 70's and 80's. Such a change from what we have been used to! This was a trip that the kids will never forget. So much wildlife, too! Words cannot describe the scenic beauty we were able to see. Now, it's back to homework. I have one more week until graduation! Love to all!!
Can not wait until August!!! Taking a vacation (even taking the kids...lol) going to St. George (to see my sister) for 2 nights, then taking the kids to Zions and to Bryce canyon, then ending up in Torrey for 2 nights!!! Austin and Autumn are going to love the cabin we have got reserved in Torrey!!! We are going to have so much FFFUUUNNN! :)

Amazing trip to Bryce Canyon. Beautiful scenery along Hwy 12 and we did a 3 mile hike to a beautiful waterfall...all with great friends! The kids had a blast and lots of great memories made.
Dear fellow Contemporary Pilgrims, I'm embarking on a two-week tour of the Southwest & Pacific Coast. What off-the-beaten-path, authentic things must I see along the way? I'll be venturing from ATX towards Big Sur, and perhaps into the Redwoods. My nomad dog will be along for {the ride} too. Have a grandma who makes a mean cobbler or know a local watering hole I can't miss? Please share. These stories will be the second batch of tales published once the site is officially launched next week! Cheers, Ashley
Just plotted our route from CO to our daughter Cassandra's house. 1076 miles. Should be an awesome drive in the convertible vette. We plan to set out first thing tomorrow morning.
We had a wonderful time on our vacation. Each day was fun filled and definitely lived to its fullest!! I hope the kids will have lots if memories of their family vacation to Vegas, Brian Head Utah, Zion National Park, and Bryce Canyon!
We're in Provo, UT today, going to Salt Lake City to see the Mormon Temple Square and then on to Teton Natl Park, then Yellowstone. Grand Canyon was awesome. We went to Bryce Canyon yesterday, another incredible place with strange looking structures called "hoodoos" that are sandstone shaped by millions of years of erosion. Before we got to Bryce we stopped off at a big cave that had interesting advertising. A guy bought it from a rancher 50 yrs ago and turned it into the ultimate man cave - bar, dance hall, etc. After he gave up on it his son took it over and turned it into a museum with prehistoric fossils, dinosaur tracks, etc. but also a history of his family. His father was one of 55 kids!! 25 daughters!!! Ugggh! 6 wives! Before we got out west we stopped at the Biltmore Mansion in Asheville, NC. It's the largest "house" in the US. We figured we could get some decorating and landscaping tips ;). Then went to Smoky Mountains which was real nice. We left there in the dark and as we exited the park we c ...
Gail & I just finished our reservations for our trip next year for Grand Canyon, Zion, & Bryce. Got the cabin on bottom of Bryce that looks into park & plan to hike the Hoodoos!
Attended the Mormon Tabernacle Choir's Music and the Spoken Word this morning. What a heavenly experience. Absolutely magnificent. What a special treat! On the way now to Bryce Canyon.

Took an impromptu detour to the Grand Canyon (again!). North Rim this time. So much more relaxed than the South Rim. Found a "dispersed" camp site along the East Rim about 5 miles down a dirt road. Beautiful. The last two pictures are from our campsite. I wonder if I was a gypsy in a previous life? ;)
A shallow M4 earthquake has shaken the Grand Canyon north side area. Epicenter was in between Grand Canyon NP, Zion NP and Bryce Canyon National Parks.

My son is a lot like me. I woke up at 6a to find him alone, awake, sitting on a bucket in the rain with the fire stoked and blazing. When I asked him what he was up to he replied. "Just whittling and thinking." Yep, we both do a lot of "whittling and thinking." Carry on, Son.

Okay to everyone following the blog. It is not going to be updated today because the day has just been way too long. Here is the quick version: Bryce Canyon, hiked down thousands of feet to look up at the Hoodoos, rain and lightening, Plan B...keep driving, Zion National Park (AMAZING), keep driving, Vegas, hauling all our stuff through the casino, checking in at Mandalay Bay and now...time for bed. Sorry to everyone but we have amazing photos that we will upload tomorrow.

We are leaving Salt Lake 2moro for Bryce Canyon and then to Zion and one night in Vegas!!! Will be a quick week but should be fun
Super excited to explore tomorrow! Been waiting to see Bryce Canyon for years!
Some days go beyond what words can convey. Drove to Moab from Jackson, WY. Took the scenic route. Got caught in the desert in a rain storm as the afternoon sun turned the red rocks and sky into a marvelous fast changing scene.Too much to post on here.
Hiked into, and back out of, Bryce Canyon today.. Wahoo!!
Hiked Bryce Canyon today which is beautiful. Even in hail.
We just finished three great days at Camp Utibaca here in Utah. Looking forward to fellowship with the church here in Panguitch and then on to Bryce Canyon for some sightseeing.
In panguitch, utah and Bryce canyon on my birthday trip! Funs!
Went to Bryce Canyon today and of course it rained!!!

Two days ago I was awed by Utah's raw and diverse terrain; beautiful and rugged. As we traveled from north to south, however, it became evident that mountain top removal is not limited to the Appalachia. It is worth bearing with the 22 second commercial to learn about one example of mining in Utah and the consequences that ensue. :(
A new adventure is on the horizon...yes, that means more travel pics!
We're flying to Vegas tomorrow renting car to see the Grand Canyon, Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon n Hoover Dam. Not looking forward to the 117 degree weather in Vegas. We're doing it in 8 days. Looking forward to see Terry Fador the puppeteer who won America's Got Talent a few yrs ago.
Hiked at Bryce Canyon and saw this little guy!
Came through Zion National Park today. Over the next few days, plan to spend some more time there as well as at Bryce Canyon National Park. And, by the way, it's HOT here!
Last day in Utah started at Cedar Breaks National Monument, just south of the popular ski resort town of Brian Head. It's very similar to Bryce Canyon, only it's at over 10,000 feet elevation & without the large crowds. More pics in my Kanab, UT album.
Day at Zion National Park coming to a close. What a place to visit with Katie Coll!
Staying at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Kanab, Utah... 3800 sf of red clay, nestled in between the Grand Canyon, Zion, and Bryce Canyon. With pigs, horses, dogs, cats, birds... Heaven.
The Bryce Canyon 1/2 Marathon is almost here, and we still have several rooms and cabins available for the weekend. Check out our website for details!
Last year's trip to the Grand Canyon, Bryce and Zion
Hello everybody. We are back after a couple days away from the heat. Pulled into the driveway at 5:30 AM and a 6 hour nap, I am human. We had an awesome time up north, seeing the N. Rim of the Grand Canyon, a hotel stay in Kanab, UT, then the rest of the day in Bryce Canyon. It was spectacular. Good to be home, and thank you everyone who wished me a Happy Birthday.
Road trip to Bryce Canyon, Ut. Great day- beautiful weather!! Now off to block party on the mountain to celebrate the 4th of July. Al Catalano
Kelly and I just returned from a six day trip to Utah. We went ziplining in Park City, toured the Olympic venues from 2002, and then went hiking in Bryce Canyon and Zion National Parks. We even got chased by a wild bison near the Great Salt Lake. Today marks our 28th anniversary. I feel blessed.
Here comes the rain again.have changed my mind re: moving to Seattle area...now would like to move to Vancouver!
Leaving Brighton and Salt Lake, heading to Bryce Canyon and Zion Canyon.

And finally a little Bryce Canyon. 3 canyons so close and yet so different.
Time to make our way home.:( where to go from here open road and 5 days to do it! Lets see where we end up!
Homeward bound. Had a great trip at Bryce Canyon. It is a beautiful place!!
Almost to Salt Lake City. Boy this is sure a longer drive than I thought it would be. You know if you haven't been to Utah you can go ahead and skip it. What an ugly place! There isn't a single exit between the Nv boarder and 40 miles in
Like for plane comment for train. Elizabeth Besly and I are going on a trip!
Good day with Uncle Vano, Aunt Rita & My Mommy Dearest. Love them all! @ BRYCE CANYON
I saw 4 black bears today and two nights ago one was outside our tent snarling at us... not kidding.. we were ready to hand to hand fight this thing.. we survived tho.. he left us alone
More of Day 4 Utah at Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument and the famous Bryce Canyon
Zion National Park. Who knows it well? We are heading there for a few days when Jeff is home on his pre-deployment leave. We know we want to hike The Narrows but wondering what else is a "must-see" while we are there. Let me know what you think.
Thanks to everyone to wished me a happy birthday today! It means a lot!
First time on the internet since we left on July 1st. This is our last night at Bryce Canyon, Utah. Tomorrow morning we drive to Montezuma's Castle in Arizona.
OK - time for a strange Top Ten list. What are the most beautiful counties in America? I will only list counties I've been to (never been to the Pacific NW or Hawaii). And most of the county must be nice - not just one spot. Here's my top ten, though not necessarily in this order: 1. Garfield County, Utah - Home of Bryce Canyon, outskirts of Zion and Canyonlands 2. Transylvania County, North Carolina - 250 waterfalls in the mountains 3. White County, Tennessee - 1,065 caves, lush green hills and waterfalls 4. Hancock County, Maine - Acadia National Park 5. Gallatin County, Montana - Bozeman and near Yellowstone 6. Marin County, California - Across Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco 7. Santa Fe County, New Mexico - City and county are beautiful 8. Monroe County, Florida - Florida Keys 9. Chittenden County, Vermont - Burlington and along Lake Champlain 10. Park County, Colorado - High up in the Rockies
Well in about 12hrs I am heading out to Yellowstone NP for a well deserved and over due vacation. Be there for about 10 days then down to Bryce Canyon for another 10 days. It has been over 30yrs since I was at either place - stay tune for some pictures - if I can remember to take them.
Survived 14 hrs of 18 miles back country hiking & camping in the Zion National Park's - Narrows trial.
More pictures from Bryce Canyon, It's amazing how tired you get from hiking at 9000 feet above sea level.
So yes it is time to take my Mom to the drive in.she just asked where you hang the speaker to listen to the movie!!! Wow it has been way to long Momma.you will be so amazed! lol, its the little things;)
We had a blast last night celebrating the 4th with friends in Cedar City at their Airplane Hanger. Good food and good company. A perfect view of the fireworks. Who could ask for more. Jane and Bill you really out did yourselves. Thank you so much for putting on such a great party!
Why do I get the feeling that everyone is doing something more fun than what I'm doing right now?
Made it to Vegas. Got our rental, Walmart done now starting out on our 5 hour drive to Bryce Canyon. Temp in Vegas is 102, temp at Bryce is 85. Can't get there fast enough.
Leaving tomorrow for vacation with 2 of the grandkids, Carson, 8, and Ethan 10. Just us, the Ford pickup and the Lance travel trailer on our way to the Grand Canyon, the Grand Canyon train, Bryce Canyon, Zion National Park and Mesa Verde National Park. Cooked up 4 days worth of meals and I need a vacation before I take a vacation!
We spend whole days on buses, 24+ hours on winding back roads and over plunging cliffs, just to reach that one beautiful place we read about.
We're on top of Bryce Canyon right now-
Heading to Bryce Canyon for the weekend! :D
In Cedar City visiting Rick Peeples. Saw "Peter and the Starcatcher" last night, in a fine production. Tonight we see Mr. Peeples in "Twelve Angry Men." Expect to visit Zion and Bryce over the weekend.
