Kodachrome Basin State Park and Bryce Canyon



Today we took the short drive to Bryce Canyon, we are staying right outside the park because there are so many other attractions in this area. We took a day trip to Kodachrome Basin State Park to see the unique rock formations while we were there we took a hike called the Angel's Palace. The weather here is a lot cooler because of the altitude. The park is pretty and has lot of  shorter hiking trails and a very nice campground. We than took the Moss Cave hiking trail which is closer to Bryce, and actually part of the National Park, this was a very pretty trail leading to a moss filled water dripping cave and had a turn off to a beautiful waterfall.

We are staying at the Bryce Canyon Pines Campground, we needed electricity because it can still get down below freezing at night, tomorrow we will be in Bryce and hike some of the many trails they offer.



Happy Birthday, Jen hope you had a great day.

Coral Pink Sands State Park

We left the Zion National Park area and traveled to Coral Pink Sands State Park. The trip took us through the area in Arizona named the Arizona strip. This area is noted for plural marriages among the Mormon settlers. We passed through a couple of strange towns......



Coral Pink Sands state park is a small but very pretty park. We are back in camping mode while here as we do not have any hookups, not an RV resort. They do have great showers however. The area has huge sand dunes and is a favorite with the four wheelers that mainly come on the weekends. We are in a higher elevation then we have been and the weather is much cooler. This morning it was in the 50's.








We are on our way to Bryce Canyon National Park........more from there
