Along the way
Yesterday at Capital Reef we had no cell service and no internet, so I completed the blog entry when we went to the nearest town for ice cream. Even there the best I could get was a 3G signal that would come and go, so today I added more pictures to yesterday's blog entry.
Today we traveled 140 miles or so to Bryce Canyon National Park on Utah Highway 12. It was a spectacular drive, white knuckles at times to be sure. We wound our way up and over a few mountain ranges on a narrow twisting road with steep drop offs. One section was along a ridge with a thousand foot drop on both sides. There was no guard rail.
We stopped for lunch at Anasazi State Park, where there were ruins from early Pueblo Indians.
After we got set up in our campground just outside Bryce Canyon National Park we took the park shuttle in to the visitor center and a little beyond to get oriented to the park, but we will explore more tomorrow.
