Day 3 Bryce

Bryce Canyon National Park…

Almost out of a fairy tale Bryce is nothing like you’ve ever seen. Spend the day among the “HooDoos” by hiking the Navajo Loop and Queen’s Garden Trails, or stare at the maze of ancient sandstone spires from the rim of the canyon. Later, we’ll drive to camp near Grand Canyon.
