We arrived at Bryce where we quickly realized we were at a much higher altitude as evidenced by the amount of snow still on the ground. It was still nice and warm though thanks to the wonderful sunshine we were getting so off we headed to hike down into the canyon. Several trails were closed due to ice but it didn’t take long to locate an open loop that went down to the bottom and off we went. It was a very enjoyable hike and the snow made for some wonderful picturesque views.
We had one more stop along the way though- a surprise visit to “The Big Rock Candy Mountain” a spot named because of the candy colored hills after the song.
We enjoyed the hot springs immensely and had a nice big spaghetti dinner fixed alongside the bus before loading up for the night and our drive to the next destination- Arches.
