We meet at the West parking lot of the Dixie Center and make our way to Bryce Canyon National Park.  Depending on departure location we may take you over scenic highway 14 which travels over the beautiful pine mountains.  Along the way, you will see Zion from a distance as well as a relatively recent volcanic flow laid down a just 800 years ago.

We then continue on to Bryce Canyon.  As we enter the park we make our way to some of the most beautiful overlooks that can include Natural Bridge, Bryce Point, Far View Point, Sunset Point, Inspiration Point and others.

Based on guests ability and desire for a hike into the canyon is always a fun option.  We descend 600 ft in among the majestic rock spires of Bryce.  After we make our way back out we begin our journey back to the hotel.

Travel with us to an area filled with fantastic rock formations resembling elephants, birds, and other animals.  On this tour, we travel into the midst of a sandstone playground.  We take a short hike that goes past the remnants of the old western movie set and into a narrow slot canyon.

As we travel in the park we visit a panel of petroglyphs named for an ancient hunting device called an atlatl.  Along the way keep your eyes open for the herd of desert bighorn sheep that roam the park.  We make our way out of the park and make one last stop for a walk through a natural “rock garden” with tunnels and caves carved from the rocks themselves.

Be sure to bring your camera the artistic opportunities are numerous in this Nevada State Park.

Dates:

Start: 8:00 AM
End: 6:00 PM

(Available May 15-Oct 15) We depart from St George around 8:00 AM and travel East.  It takes about 2.5 hours to get out there but is well worth the trip.  As we travel up the Kaibab Plateau we have a good chance of seeing the Bison herd that roams this portion of the Grand Canyon.  This is one of the purest herds of Bison around as it has not been added to by non-native bison.

Once we arrive we will make a trip out to Cape Royal or Point Imperial Overlook for a spectacular view of the Canyon.  From there we will make our way down to the beautiful North Rim Lodge.  A visit to the lodge and then if desired a short walk out to Bright Angel Point will finish our visit to the Canyon.

We will return home arriving early evening.
