Bryce Canyon National Park, UT

It was a Sunday when we reached the park and both the campgrounds had just opened for the season. We found a site at Sunset campground and by evening all the sites were fully booked out.

Picked up the map from the visitor center and did all touristy stops along with a short hike to the Mossy Cave and the water fall above is on the way. It’s a 1.2-mile round trip.

All the overlook stops offer breathtaking views of the canyon. Do stop and enjoy.

We originally planned to camp two nights and had paid for the same. Next morning I overheard someone talking about snow storm that day.

So, we decided to break the tent and do the hike. This way the tent will stay dry.

We did Navajo loop and Peekaboo loop together, approximately 6-miles.

Both the loops have spectacular views, in particular the Peekaboo loop. If you have to pick one, go with Peekaboo.

In the middle of the hike, hailstorm started that turned into rain/snow. Trail turned muddy quickly, making it slippery to walk.

We managed to finish and hike and headed for a pizza outside the park. While eating the snowstorm intensified and we decided to leave the area for the day.

So, we drove in the direction of Grand Canyon and found a motel in Fredonia called “Grand Canyon Motel” to stay. Run by a old couple, this place is cheap and decent. Across the border at Kanab, everything is expensive and hard to get a room there.
