Bryce Canyon - Hiking the Hoodoos

Mike has wanted to go to Bryce Canyon for years. Wouldn't you know it, two years ago, I had our trip booked to visit this national park.  Some of you may remember that two years ago, our national government closed all the national parks...yup, that was the week we were going to go to Bryce Canyon.  So, for Mike's Christmas present this past year, I booked this trip again for the first week of April. Happily, we finally made it to this amazing national park.  We got there just as the sun was setting and the moon was full and the views of the hoodoos were amazing!




The next day, we did some serious hiking.  We hiked so much, I could hardly move that night!  Some of the hikes I loved and others, well, just one, not so much because I slipped on a muddy trail and let's just say that slip scared me!





   








This is how you exit this gorgeous area. We were commenting that now days, no one would allow a hole to be made through our rocks but I'm glad the hole is there and that some of the trails were groomed.  Go to Bryce Canyon, you'll be glad you did.  We both agreed that this is a place not to take young children. The drop offs on many of the hikes are pretty scary!  FYI we stayed at the Best Western Plus Bryce Canyon.  It's the newer Best Western just outside the gates of this national park and we liked it.
