Day 569 of Life on the Road as a Family, Bryce Canyon National Park

IMG_1670Eliza and Dan and I took a 3 1/2 hour guided tour of Bryce Canyon National Park, while Nate stayed at the rig, sick, in his bunk.  We had made reservations the day before and could have cancelled, but he was happy to have us gone so he could sleep in a quiet atmosphere, and we were happy to be gone, away from his germs.  I think he picked up a virus on the shuttle bus in Zion.  There were people coughing and hacking every time we rode, and there was no way to get away from them.

So we took the tour and I enjoyed every minute. The guide definitely knew his facts about Bryce, and he shared interesting stories, in between corny jokes.  We were able to ride all the way out to Rainbow Point, which isn’t possible on the park’s normal shuttle system.
