Bryce Canyon NP and a Storm Warning


We awoke this morning to cold wind and cloudy skies. After letting the dogs run around for a while, we bundled up and headed for Bryce Canyon, it was exactly ten minutes from our  boon docking spot to the gate . Our national park pass covered the entrance fee and we rode the shuttle to the beginning of our hike at Sunset Point. Bryce Canyon is beyond description, there just aren’t  words to describe it.




Down into the canyon



We did the Sunrise to Sunset Pt. hike and the Navajo, Queens Garden Loop.



Saw some wildlife


A whole pile of  Inachucks


But mostly Hoodoos                                     


Queen Victoria








We  wanted to stay here a few more days but the weather is changing, the driver of the shuttle told us a storm was coming  and they were expecting a foot of snow Thursday.We checked the weather on line and sure enough there is a winter storm warning, with rain/snow expected both Wednesday and Thursday. So we will be heading to Page Arizona tomorrow, we plan to spend a few days at a BLM  area at Lake Powell. Then we hope to head for the Grand Canyon.  As usual all plans subject to change.

We are having trouble with our Shaw satellite system, we cannot get a signal. croft tried to help us, but no matter what we do our signal is 0. We talked to Shaw once and they were no help. We may have to get a receiver sent from our house, cause apparently Shaw won’t send a new receiver out of Canada .And hockey starts tomorrow!

We are sorry we won’t get to see more of this special place. I think we will come back.



  1. spectacular views of Bryce Canyon..hard to believe it actually looks like that!!

  2. Bryce is one of my many favorite places. Too bad about the coming storm because those hoodoos do take on some beautiful colors and hues in the sunlight. We have been to both the North and South rims of the Grand Canyon and liked them both. Especially liked the North Rim because it was quiet and free of people when we were there.
