t's crazy but I cannot find on TA where I posted my trip report. I remember writing it...
So, here it is, recreated from my memory + my posts to facebook. ;-)
Day 6 - A long travel day from Lake Powell, so bags outside door at 6:45am and on the bus at 7:30am. Bye, bye, Lake Powell. Rest stop at Kenab UT, aka Little Hollywood. Not to do anything touristy like the museum or even photo opp at Little Hollywood sign. Another place with bathrooms and tourist trinkets. I rebel and walk across the street to take landscape photos and try to go into art studios and museum but...it's a Sunday morning - nothin' is open. Bye, bye Kenab. Off to Bryce Canyon. We only have a few hours there, so I'm glad the guide pushed us to buy a packable lunch the day before. Of course, I found a non-Walmart place to get ours. On bus ride, we saw horses, cows, bison. Excited when we arrived at Bryce, We were only there for a few hours -- enough time for lunch and a short hike. My dad and I ate lunch on the rim of Bryce Canyon, surrounded by hoodoos. I like this lifestyle :-) I followed the guide's advice on where to hike. Other than the usual rush to get back to the bus on time, it was wonderful. I saw stunning rock formations, tiny birds with high-up nests in rocks, chipmunks were everywhere. For those of you considering a tour -- a few hours in Bryce is not enough. With hindsight, I would have given up Lake Powell for more time here. Back on the bus -- there was a quick stop at Bryce Point before we hit the road towards Zion. My trip report continues on the Zion Forum
