Jun 22, 2007 - Bryce Canyon Utah

We left Las Vegas Wednesday the 20th of June and started out for Bryce Canyon Utah (about 260 miles). We arrived at Ruby's RV Park about 3:30pm. We set up and then relaxed for a little while. We went down to Ruby's lodge and looked around. Ruby's is a relatively large complex of building and enterprises. A lodge, grocery store, art store, jewelry, camping, gas station, restaurant, gas station, RV Park and it goes on. On Thursday we explored part of Bryce canyon and it's magnificent landscape. The scenery is unable to be described (see...

Jun 3, 2007 - Grand Canyon, Zion & Bryce Canyons

May 25: We arrived in Holbrook at our reserved KOA site and found the staff here super friendly. The camp is not the greatest, but Holbrook isn't much either. It appears it was once a railroad town, but now its only claim to fame is its nearness to the Petrified Forest and Painted Desert. Every night the camp has a cookout and every morning they have a pancake breakfast. So far, we've covered both and found them quite filling. Their signature dish, Petrified Toast, is the most ordered thing on the menu. Previous campers know to order an...

Apr 8, 2007 - Bryce Canyon National Park

We arrived at Bryce Canyon today. After setting up camp we went sightseeing and took in the breathtaking vistas. The spires, arches and rare rock formations are incredible awe inspiring. We ate dinner at the lodge and then later it snowed and was very cold indeed. The next morning it was nice. Bryce is a small but beautiful national park. A must see.

Jul 12, 2006 - Moab to Bryce Canyon, Utah

Chip got up early to mountain bike the Slickrock Trail...one of his lifetime goals. Then we drove through beautiful desert, Capitol Reef National Park, Dixie National Forest and the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. This must be the most beautiful drive in the whole nation. What incredible views! It was interesting to drive through such different terrain - stark desert, canyons and mesas, thick pine forest and back into canyon and mesa-land - all within about 5 hours. One problem...the kids and I were WAY too carsick to fully...

Oct 26, 2005 - Kodachrome Basin, Utah

We found this place almost by accident as we didn't want to camp at Bryce Canyon because of its high elevation. We ended up staying here for 3 nights because it was such a cool place. The park has amazing rock formations and when you climb up them you have amazing views of the surrounding area. I did one insane hike where I attemped to hike up the cliff face. Anyway I got about two thirds up and then got stuck. It was very scary and I eventually slid most of the way down on my bum. Apart from that we had a great time here.

Oct 14, 2005 - Bryce Canyon National Park - Utah

Ever since I've known Jim, he's talked about Bryce Canyon and Zion National Parks. He visited them 10 years ago and has wanted to return ever since. So off we went to Bryce Canyon. Different than either Arches or Canyonlands, Bryce Canyon is not so much a canyon as a series of horseshoe-shaped amphitheatres along the north side of a 15 mile long plateau ranging in elevation from 7800 to 9100 feet above sea level. Being part of the Colorado Plateau, the features were formed in similar ways to the other canyons we've visited. However the...

Jul 26, 2004 - The Hoodoo's of Bryce Canyon.

Travelling east through the desert, we were captivated by the beauty of the landscape in southern Utah. Such a contrast to the bleakness of Nevada. When we reached Bryce, the storms were already brewing, and being at a higher elevation, the air was a little chilly. A welcome relief! In the afternoon, we drove out on the canyon rim, and were stopped by road construction. (Every N.P. seems to be fixing roads in the summer, right when they have maximun visitors!) Being the first car stoped, the flag woman, a leather faced dwarf with ice blue...
