But He does a heck of a job with rocks too. We were so looking forward to seeing Bryce Canyon, as we have heard that it the absolutely most fantastic place ever. We left our campground early and left it to Tommy, our GPS, to take us the scenic route. And it certainly did. Right up over the mountain!
We are heading to Las Vegas to pick up our grandson, in a few days. His parents are bring him down from northern California. All the airlines have a layover and plane change, and being as he is only 11, we think it is a little too much for him to try. Below is a forecast of what they are expecting for the weather. And we will be there till our mail arrives. Seems like it always takes the mail it’s sweet ole time if we are wanting to move on. Maybe this time it will surprise us.
We are hoping to do the Grand Canyon with him before heading off to southern California, but if the weather does not cool down some, that may have to wait for another time. That was to be the educational part of his trip with us, but sure we can find something else that would do. San Diego always has wonderful weather, and there is a great military campground with a swimming pool and all. Wonderful place for kids…also connected to a golf course, which works for the other kid. He did get to play once before we left Springs, which made him happy. Moving along.

Pictures can Not do this justice, it is unbelievable.
From there it was off to Zion National Park, which was about a 40 mile drive. The weather was perfect, we stopped for a picnic, could not have been nicer. We entered Zion on the back side, which meant the visitors center would be near our exit. Basically, we needed no sight seeing directions, as there is only one road cutting it’s way through the most spectacular scenery imaginable. We were both totally blown away.
Of all the parks we have seen the past week, Zion made the biggest impression for us. The Arches has to be a close second. With both those parks you feel like you a part of them, where as Bryce gave us the feeling that we were in an art gallery, looking down into the scene. But that may be just us, all three are a wonderful, wonderful treat. From now on will always think of Garden of the Gods, in Colorado Springs, as the “little brother” to these wonders.
