Monday 4th May – Bryce Canyon National Park
After a lovely sleep in a huge king bed we packed and checked out just on eleven. We drove to Bryce Canyon National Park and spent the rest of the day there. We started with a walk which had a lot of steep downhill sections, which hurt my knee enough that by the end of the day I wasn’t able to go on any further walks.
The national park—and especially that first walk—was very cool. Lots of crazy rock spires.
After finishing looking at the things in Bryce Canyon, and once again just as it began to sprinkle a little, we drove to Zion National Park, and out the other side of it into a small park at Springdale, where we stopped and made some dinner.
We met two other couples there also both looking for places to spend the night—a French couple and a Kiwi couple. The Kiwi couple told us there’s a Walmart about a half hour drive away, but we ended up spending the night in the park.
