We left Kanab and headed for Bryce Canyon. On the outskirts of Bryce we pulled into this little place and had a coffee and a mixed berry pie. Well, I had a pie. We had had a good run across but there were plenty of dead deer on the side of road. Pretty sad really.
We passed in through the gates of Bryce with our National Pass. Nearly paid for itself already. We drove right to the end like it has been advised on this site. That way we had all the pull outs on our side of the road heading back. Very busy again already.
We love going to Bryce Canyon. Each time you go, you see changes in the landscape. What may have been a small hole in a Hoodoo last time is now a fair bit bigger. Apparently when the hole gets iced up in winter, the ice expands making the hole bigger. Then melts and runs out when its warmer.
Originally this big hole would have been tiny. Now the weather has made it that big, haha.
We had been hoping to have got to Inspiration Point and Sunset and Sunrise Points but the Park Rangers came out and closed the roads that went to them. Apparently it was full. No more room in there.
We headed out from Bryce and we thought we would head up through Capital Reef National Park. Not far out of Bryce is a cross road where we should have turned right. I was confused by the way the sign read and went straight across. I guess I get confused easy hehe.
That was a big disappointment but we had got out a few miles and thought, not turning back now. Road was really great and had been resealed. There were huge Ranch's all along the way but not once did we see any life. Spooky. When we came out the other end, we wern't far out of Salina so we booked in there at a motel. Had a good nights sleep and had breakfast before hitting the road again along I 70
All these google vehicles parked out side the motel. Updating all the google maps. The cars were guarded all night while the drivers slept.
I want to make the missus a cup of T so be back later on for the next stage heading across I 70 to Moab.
