The winds are now picking up, and Munchkin and I are getting a bit chilly. Our hoodies aren’t quite cutting it now, so we decide to pull out the jackets. D is laughing at us because we have our hoods up trying to protect our ears from the cold wind. Interesting tidbit… Paria is a Paiute word meaning “water with elk” or “water with mud.” (from Your Guide to Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks) Our next stop will be Swamp Canyon.
By the time we reached Inspiration Point, the clouds had really started to roll in over the area. We started to feel our first rain drops. A few rain drops would not keep us from continuing on. Unfortunately, at this point in our tour of Bryce Canyon, Munchkin started to feel worse. For some time, she kept a smile on her face and tried to stay positive. With the beginning of the rain, her resolve started to waver, but she decided that she wanted to keep going. So, our next stop will be Bryce Point.
Next stop on the Bryce Canyon tour is Sunset Point. You can easily walk from Sunrise Point to Sunset Point, but we chose to drive on this rainy day where Munchkin was under-the-weather. You can see another glimpse of our hiking trail at this location. Yet another reason that Munchkin really wanted to be able to hike this trail. She thought it would be so cool to get down there and see everything. Next stop… Inspiration Point.
Over the next few days, I’ll be posting pictures from the different stops at Bryce Canyon. Instead of having 1 HUGE post that was filled to the brim with pictures, I decided to just do a series of posts with a selection of pictures for each location. For our trip to Bryce Canyon, we took our handy Your Guide to Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks. Before each stop, I would read all the information presented in the book for that stop. We would then take the book with us to the location, so we knew exactly what we were…
