May 19, 2016 - Bryce Canyon

We had some rain last night at sunset. That combination produced a full rainbow. It was particularly bright at the two ends. I failed to capture the full rainbow and so have included four photos. Today Sue took the wheel and headed the Honda west on Route 12 toward Bryce Canyon National Park. We drove through Red Canyon but decided to postpone our stop there in favor of proceeding to Bryce. As we drove west we noted a new 6.2 mile long paved bike path along side the road that stretched all the way into the national park. When we arrived...

Apr 23, 2016 - Zion to Bryce

What a great way to start the day--sunrise at the Towers of the Virgin and the West Temple in Zion. We were up at 6:30 and were rewarded with spectacular views of the sunlight coming over the mountains and lighting the rock formations. The best part that was as the sun rose, the lighting changed on the rocks. Back to the hotel for breakfast and to pack and then it was back on the bus for our next destination, Bryce Canyon. The drive up and out of Zion was just gorgeous. We went thru a very long tunnel with 3 arched windows with great views...

Apr 9, 2016 - Bryce Canyon

Drove up I15 in the rain and across the 20 freeway then the 89 to the 12 to Bryce. Not a bad drive. We drove through two small tunnels. Arrived at Ruby's Inn and RV park. Pretty nice place. We got a large pull through, 113. Satellite worked good, good 50 amp, good water pressure and wifi. Cell phones worked good. We went to Bryce and got to see it snow on us. Very cold. Went on a few drives and hikes also. They have a car and RV wash across the street, so I washed the jeep. Maybe do the Moho to. The rain on our way made a mess of the Moho....

Sep 22, 2015 - Bryce Canyon National Park / Hiking the HooDoo's

On Friday the 18th we hiked down into the HooDoo's of Bryce Canyon. The trails are steep in some places, but oh so worth the hike. The sights are beautiful & amazing, from the rim above you just don't get the sense of how big & massive the HooDoo's are. What a great day it was, would we do it again.....oh yes, but we'd wait for the soreness in the muscles subside.

Sep 22, 2015 - A relaxing & Enjoyable Birthday for Pete

On Sunday (the 20th) Pete celebrated another birthday. We were able to get together with friends Paul & Kathie (friends from Ca, who are full timers). We had a nice visit at breakfast & then sat in Ruby's Inn lobby & chatted till almost noon. We really enjoyed seeing them again. The rest of the day was spent bumming around & eating dinner out. Photos that were taken on Pete's birthday were taken with a new camera. It seems I wore out the auto lens cover (the camera is a little over a year old). So soon as we go back to Picacho, we'll be...

Sep 22, 2015 - Bryce Wildilfie Adventure Museum

There Bryce Wildlife Adventure Museum is over 1,600 square feet of taxidermy animals from all over the world. It is an amazing collection, we met one of the owners & it was her husband that hunted approximately 90 % of the animals on display. Many animals were displayed in their own environment settings. Also on display were many artifacts, its a very interesting place.

Sep 8, 2015 - Mossy Cave & Ebenezer's Cowboy Dinner Show

September 8, 2015 MOSSY CAVE & WATERFALL We hiked up to Mossy Cave and the Waterfalls today. It was a beautiful 74 degrees and a really nice hike beside a fast-flowing stream, across two footbridges to a junction. The left fork had a short but steep climb through a patch of pine woodland to the cave, actually just a wide mossy overhang in the Claron limestone, kept moist by water dripping from the ceiling, more like a grotto than a cave, but very very beautiful. The right fork of the trail lead a little further upstream to the waterfall,...

Sep 7, 2015 - Bryce Canyon Rainbow Point Tour

September 7, 2015 Happy Labor Day During last night we had a rain storm that left large puddles in low spots all over the campground. Sure wish we could send some of this water back to California. The weather here is perfect, 70 degrees with beautiful fluffy clouds during the day and mid 40’s at night. We have to run the electric fireplace at night till we go to bed. Today we went on a three and a half hour narrated tour of Bryce Canyon. The tour started at our RV Park (elev. 7689’) and went to Rainbow Point, the highest point in the park...

Sep 6, 2015 - Sunset at Bryce National Park

September 6, 2015 Sunset at Bryce Canyon National Park We decided to go watch the sunset over the canyon tonight. We drove to Sunset Point along with many other sunset watchers. Parking was a challenge but we found a space. We hiked down the path and up a steep trail and finally found the perfect spot to watch the sunset. As the sun started to set, the colors in the canyon started to change. It is amazing how the light affects the different beauty of the canyon. We stayed until the sun had completely disappeared and made our way back to the...

Sep 6, 2015 - Red Canyon National Monument

September 6, 2016 RUBY’S INN RV PARK & CAMPGROUND Today, we are here at Ruby’s Inn RV Park & Campground. In 1916, Ruby Syrett brought his family to the wilds of Southern Utah, establishing a ranch near the present site of Ruby’s Inn. A few weeks after his arrival, another nearby rancher told Ruby of the canyon called Bryce. Ruby and his family made a Sunday visit to the canyon rim. They were so impressed by what they saw that they not only took full advantage to tell people of the canyon’s beauties, but they also became hosts to its...

Aug 31, 2015 - Bryce Canyon

We walked Sandy around town this morning and then brought her back to the camper and we headed out for the day starting with a delicious breakfast. We were in for a treat when we had to pass through Dixie National Forest with the Red Canyons before entering Bryce. So spectacular! Each place seems to get better and better. We viewed from the rim and then hiked down among the formations. Totally amazing!

Aug 30, 2015 - Capital Reef National Park, Utah's Best Kept Secret

We were trying to make a decision to take the interstate or back roads to our next destination. Back roads was definitely the right choice. Capitol Reef National Park was amazingly beautiful and we purchased a small homemade apple pie and homemade ice cream, yum. It was a scenic drive all the way. Utah is beautiful and we still have two popular parks to visit.
