May 16, 2016 - Bryce Canyon to Zion

We got to Bryce Canyon a little before 8 and there was no one at the booth. It really doesn't matter as Jim has the National Parks Pass which gets him and me into most National Parks for free. It costs $30 to enter the park for most people. I have a feeling a few people got in free today, as no one ever asked to see our pass. We enjoyed the rock formations along scenic route 12 more than some of the ones on the tour. They were really magnificent. We finally have phone service and the visitor center has wifi. We called a number I found in...

Mar 7, 2008 - Bryce Canyon

Right...well, yesterday we had internet for the first time in a few days and this web site didn't seem to want to work so I got pretty fed up. Now, you will have to have a brief run down on what we have been up to. Great day at Grand Canyon and then Jo, Nikki and I got up to go and watch the sunrise over the Canyon. Steve tried to work out where the sun would rise and thought that we wouldn't see the actual sun but we did!!! It was spectacular but very cold. Got down there at 6.30am and were back home at about 7.15am. Jo and Nikki went...
