A wonderful stay in this very convenient inn. The room was large and confortable, the breakfast was delicious (strongly recommend the pancakes !), and so close to Bryce Canyon. Recommend it !

... Highway 12 where Bryce Canyon is located. We were stuck at a flagman stop for about 30 minutes before we could finally get back under way. Not too bad , we thought until we saw the next sign for the flagman less than 10 miles away. Same drill, 30 minute delay at the flagman stop while they sealed another section of road.

... encountering them in Junction. Our daily routine after arriving at our destination for the day would be checking in, unhitching the bob trailer, unloading our bikes, resting before actually having a shower, or sometimes we would eat before showering. That day it actually included loading the bikes onto the bike rack. The bikes went onto the rack before we even checked in. Lee and Monica seemed thrilled that it was over! I had ...
We woke up at 2am after the storm front pushed through (clouds, no rain) to see if we could see the Milky Way. It was so dark there you can easily spot it from the hotel parking lot, so we decided to push forward with plans to do a little stargazing in the park. All the girls, D included, got to see the Milky Way stretch across the sky like a giant rainbow of stars. A even saw several shooting stars!
I decided to hike alone down to Thor's Hammer ...
