We're spending a couple of nights in the small town of Panguitch, which is at the base of Bryce Canyon National Park. Panguitch is a mid-size town in a valley between the Markagunt and Pausaugunt Plateaus - Panguitch is a Paiute word for "Big Fish", probably descriptive of the fish caugh in Lake Panguitch.
Another interesting note about this area is that it is considered one of the best areas anywhere for viewing the night sky, with a darkness factor three times that in most rural areas, and visibility of stars also three times any other rural area! Should be great for star gazing tonight, and am hoping to look for Mars, which is supposed to be quite visible tonight!
We're looking forward to exploring Bryce Canyon tomorrow, and then will get out of town ahead of the predicted snow storm on Friday. As it is, our temperatures at night are expected to be in the mid to high 20's!
