Where I stayed
On the road at last and head for the lodge area where we get off the bus and get on a park shuttle to take us to Temple of Sinawava trail head. We wander up the trail along he river. It's really rushing along! The walk is lined with beautiful rock formations- colorful and unique. Weeping walls with water dripping from the Navajo Sandstone. It's very porous and holds water which then drips out from the surface. Plants take advantage of the water and cracks to thrive. Some of them are hanging way up the side if the cliff. Amazing!
We bump into animals that aren't afraid of us including mule deer. They are obviously protected within the park.
Box lunch at the visitor center which is old lodge building
Ruby's store has everything you could need to visit/camp out in Bryce. Dinner is in the lodge. Buffet again, but not as large a selection as Chuck.. Photo op of sun setting over the trees and pond. Then bundle up in bed.
