We visited Bryce Canyon National Park today for the first time. It was absolutely outstanding. Our first stop was the Visitor Center for information. They explained the best way to see the park was to drive the 18 mile drive to a circle at the end and stop at all the viewing areas on the way back. This worked out perfectly. A lot of the trails were closed, the park is full of snow. I don’t know how it would compare to views in the summer, but it was breathtakingly beautiful with all the snow.

We stopped at all of the viewing areas except one called “Sunset”, it was closed. We both loved the natural bridge and Inspiration Point the most, but they were all spectacular.

We had hoped to have some fresh trout at the Bryce Canyon Lodge in the park, but were very disappointed to find it was also closed. They told us the only restaurant open was Ruby’s about three miles from the park. We went there for lunch and had awesome steaks, not the trout we had planned for but they did not disappoint. :-)

After spending hours in the park we also drove part of Highway 12 Scenic Byway. It was incredible too, it was another great day in Utah, check back later for more.
