09.15.17 What a sight! Red Canyon, Utah

Friday, September 15, 2017 – Wow, wow! Here’s what we saw leaving Bryce Canyon, going through Red Canyon on our way back to Paradise View RV park in Panguitch, Utah. The change in what the scenery looks like around every turn just had to be shared! The first photo is one of four tunnels along the way. The rest of the photos are what we saw along the way.

Out in this part of the country it is not just a place you go to see something special, it’s also what you see along the way that makes it all so wonderful!

Ya’ll come back now ya’ hear!

09.14.17 Bryce Canyon in Utah

Bryce Canyon in the winter

Thursday, September 14, 2017 – Bryce Canyon National Park, a sprawling reserve in southern Utah, is known for crimson-colored hoodoos, which are spire-shaped rock formations. The park’s main road leads past the expansive Bryce Amphitheater, a hoodoo-filled depression lying below the Rim Trail hiking path. It has overlooks at Sunrise Point, Sunset Point, Inspiration Point and Bryce Point.  We learned that parking outside the park at Ruby’s Inn to get picked up by a shuttle bus was the best way to get around in the National Park.   Since we are old folks we got in free to this National Park and to ride the Shuttle for free.

 

There were extraordinary people with the capability of hiking down to the bottom of the canyon.  You can see them in this photo.

This was a beautiful place to visit but even with the shuttle to take us from place to place within the park it was exhausting. Lots of walkways to walk up and then walk down.  Thank goodness for the shuttle!

As we left Bryce Canyon we rode through Red Canyon and lots of other beautiful scenery.  The next blog will contain those photos.

Ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear!

09.13.17 Paradise View RV Park and Cowboy’s Smokehouse in Panguitch, Utah

Wednesday, September 13, 2017 –  We have loved the beauty of Utah, all of it.  This was a state we barely visited two years ago when we came out west.  We’re correcting that mistake this year!

We stayed at what first seemed to be an odd RV Park but it turned out to be very nice.  The view is indeed paradise like, the price was one of the cheapest we’ve ever paid and it’s one I’d certainly come back to again.  Its on Highway 89 and is only 15 miles from Bryce Canyon which we visited while we were there.

We went into town (Panguitch, Utah)  to eat dinner at Cowboy’s Smokehouse one evening. A couple of photos first of what Panguitch looks like.  We were at 6,630 feet elevation here.

One thing that we learned while in Utah is that the Federal Government owns about 2/3  of the land in Utah.   Next I’ll share our visit to Bryce Canyon which was the reason we came to this part of Utah!

Ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear!!

09.11.17 Salt Lake City, Utah

Monday, September 11, 2017 – We must never forget the attack in 2001 on our country. Never Forget.

Last Thursday we took a tour of Salt Lake City, Utah.  We chose to do the Trolley Tour and it was the perfect choice.  We were picked up in town by the trolley and enjoyed a look at several places around town.

 

doTerra (Essential Oils) had 30,000 people in town for a convention and there were doTerra signs all over town!

Our tour guide shared lots of information as we were taken around town.  

This train station is just like the one that you see when you enter Disneyworld in Florida. Our trolley conductor was simply great!

The Presbyterian Church

The Catholic Church in Salt Lake City, Utah

I thought this cactus was quite unusual.

The Beehive House was one of the official residences of Brigham Young, an early leader of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The Beehive House gets its name from the beehive sculpture atop the house

One of the administration buildings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints

Temple Square is a 10-acre complex, owned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, in the center of Salt Lake City, Utah. A view of Temple Square from above.    

State Capitol of Utah.  Looks so much like the US Capitol it is used in movies.

Here I am speaking to my subjects!

Just a random astronaut attached to a pole!

We were each given a box of Cracker Jacks and a glass bottle Coke! I think we made the right choice taking the Trolley ride!

That does it for our time in Wasatch View Estates and RV Park in Ogden, Utah where we stayed to be close to Salt Lake City, Utah.  On to southern Utah where we saw Bryce Canyon National Park – AMAZING PLACE!!

Ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear!
