Utah Trip-Bryce & Zion-Valley of Fire
« on: April 24, 2018, 09:31:44 AM »
It has been well over four years since I did a trip with three other friends from California. I?ve known them for about 20 years; however their history knowing each other dates back further. We met up in Nevada and continued together to Bryce Canyon first, stayed the night, then on to Zion for a couple of days before returning to Nevada.

Spectacular.  We have got to make it back out there again in the next few years.

Drove by there thirty years ago but didn't go into the area.  Beautiful bunch of photos Bear.  Thanks.

I have been to Bryce, unfortunately it was on 4th of july week. It was crowded. The highlight of the trip was the skywatching program the rangers put on, all of us loved it.
Nice matters

While out in Vegas on a work trip I took a few days vacation and during one of them I headed to Valley of Fire.  Gorgeous place.
