A trip to the Redrock country of Southwestern Utah the last two weeks of May 2011. We started in Bryce Canyon where temperatures ranged from 32 to 70 degrees and we woke two mornings to fresh snow. We hiked many trails of in Bryce Canyon and were amazed at the incredible formations and colors that change with different light during the day and into the night. From Bryce we traveled to Page Arizona and explored slot canyons, Horseshoe Bend, and a quick day trip to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. This is definitely a place to return and spend some quality time. Since we were so close, it made sense to take a look. Then we moved on to Monument Valley to see the magnificent formations that rise out of nowhere and create a landscape like no other place on earth. Travel is very limited due to the fact you are on the Navajo Reservation, so we were not able to hike and explore the way we would have liked to. We left Monument Valley early and made an unscheduled stop in Moab. WOW, what a spectacular place with two national parks next to each other…Canyonlands and Arches National Monument. This is also a place we would like to return and spend more time.
