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 !

And there were a few lookouts along the way. The first ...
... elevation through hillsides filled with Ponderosa Pine, green meadows and stands of Aspen. Of course, what goes up must come down, and we descended into the most fabulous canyon views. I can’t describe it – see photos! Lots of free range cattle all through the area crossing the road periodically, which didn’t worry me as I am now used to that. Relaxing now with a beer before going out to have a bite at the Capitol Reef Cafe. ...
