October 20: Bryce Canyon and Kodachrome Park

We spent the day at Bryce Canyon. We drove to the end of the park and meandered back, stopping at each of the outlook points. Steve and I walked a short loop past Bristlecone Pines. They are amazing trees. the views overlooking the canyon were magnificent.

At one of the stops along the way there was a raven in the parking lot. I stayed in the car and tossed out peanuts and Arvin took pictures. The raven alerted his friend and soon both of them were eating out of our hands. We knew we shouldn't feed them but this moment was the high point of Arvin's day.

Steve and I walked from Bryce Point to Inspiration Point, about a mile and a half. I was feeling the over 8800 feet altitude. The view was great and I really enjoyed the walk. Steve scampered over rocks while I keep plodding along.

All four of us headed off from Bryce Canyon to find a good place for an afternoon dinner before heading to Kodachrome Basin State Park. We walked around and drove out a dirt road in the park. Eventually our drive took us back to the main road and back to Ruby's Inn.

We were all tired by the time we ended the day. Dave, Steve and I played Carcassonne and then we all went to bed early so we could get up early tomorrow to drive to Zion National Park and visit sights along the way.

(Having trouble posting pictures. They will get added when we get home.)
