Western Adventure: Day 8

Woke up early and packed up our camping gear one final time. Leaving Bryce Canyon and today we have to travel again. This time to Henderson, NV to regroup and visit my aunts friend. Staying here for 2 nights so we’ll be able to do laundry, sleep in beds and take real showers. The little things in life. Drive was about 5 hrs not including stops at Dunkin Donuts and In-N-Out Burger. 

Took 2 uneventful pictures all day. One of arriving back in Arizona and another of the tempature here. Yes, it’s that hot here. Definitely stayed in once we arrived. And laid in bed all day and night. Had a lot of posts to update and pictures to upload. 


Western Adventure: Day 7

Woke up early this morning to get a good campsite at Bryce Canyon b/c they’re first come, first serve like Zion was. Drive was short so we had plenty of hiking time. Got some breakfast and phone charged then I was off again. 

Neither of us really knew what to expect at Bryce but once I say it, I instantly fell in love with it. It was seriously so amazing to look at and looked even more fun to hike. Comparing both the travel guide and REI National Parks App (which is pretty good tool that I forgot to mention earlier) I decided to do a combination of the Navajo and Peek-A-Boo Loop Trail. Figured I’d kill 2 birds with one stone. Really liked the Peek-A-Boo Loop Trail b/c it gave me a 360 view of the canyon.

Whoa! That’s a lot! Took me forever to upload. Text time I’m bringing my Mac. By far the best day so far. Got a lot of good pictures and I had an amazing time hiking, meeting new people from around the world. And even after all of this hiking plus lunch at the lodge. I still had a little left in me. And was able to make it up to the two Inspiration Point overlooks before it was dark. 


Western Adventure: Day 5

Day 5 started early b/c I had to head outside to rent some shoes, socks and a hiking stick for the Narrows, which is about 9 miles of canyoneering. By far the most fun I’ve had on my trip so far. Wasn’t strenuous at all so you could really enjoy the river and Canyon at the same time. We didn’t go too far, only 6 miles round trip but still had an amazing time. 
Spent the remainder of the day relaxing. The temp for today was 105 and we felt every bit of it. 


Western Adventure: Day 4

Left the Grand Canyon today and head towards Zion National Park in Utah. The drive was a little more than 2 hrs and was definitely more scenic than the ride to the Grand Canyon. There were nothing but miles beautiful rock formations, mountains and canyons. 

Upon arriving at the enterance to the park, things just got better. About 10 miles of a winding road that you through and down into the canyon. Until now how have I never heard about this amazing place. I was super excited to experience and see everything. Luckily we were grabbed one of the last campsites which are first come, first serve. And lucked up on one of the best ones in my opinion. 

After getting all setup we decide to take the day off and relaxed in the Virgin River which was located just behind the campsite then crashed after sundown.
