Where I stayed
Hatch Station Motel
Anyway not too much more to write about as I stayed 25 mins from the Canyon so not excitement on the road.
Every park I have been to on this trip has been mind blowing and Bryce Canyon was not exception. The landscape is so different than the other parks and a weird almost Science Fiction way. The Canyon 'Park' is only 18 miles long with viewpoints along the way. Each viewpoint offered it's own view of the 'Windows' (Arches - see photo Natural Bridge) and the Hoodoo's (red towers) and ridges. Having rather tired feet I only went on a shot forest hike at the end of the canyon and also stopped and listened to a Park Ranger's presentation on how Hoodoo's were created. I did not get a chance to go down to the bottom of the canyon as I may not have been able to get up and needed rescuing. The trip down the canyon this time was via my motorcycle and was inundated by Harley Davidson's again. 98% of the bikes I have seen on this trip are Harley's with the next biggest brand is BMW. I met a group of bikers from the GTA area (Toronto) who shipped their bikes to Las Vegas and flew to Vegas. They'll be doing the same going back home. Mmmmm...next year.
