... the hike became quite a bit more difficult. We live about 600 ft above sea level, so hiking at 8000 feet was a challenge. We took quite a few photo breaks! We also found a shady log to sit and have a snack (checked for snakes first!). We always pack lots of water and snacks for our hikes. We thoroughly enjoyed this hike! It was a warm-up for what was to come in Zion!
We wandered around the main amphitheater when we reached the top. We were hot and thirsty, ...
We left Moab around 8 am and headed for Bryce Canyon National Park. It was sunny and around 71 degrees; however they are predicting storms for today.

By the time we came back down the trail was in full sunshine and it was quite hot. The round trip took us the best part of 6 hours and by the time we got back to our motel we were pretty shattered, but pleased with ourselves.
This morning we left our pretty motel in Springdale and travelled across the Mount Carmel road to Bryce National Park, about 80 miles away.
