We loved Bryce Canyon! It’s a great place to take kids. All the look outs count as “hikes” but they’re short with a great view at the end. We hiked a little into the canyon to see the Hoodoos—hot and fascinating.
The kids signed up as junior rangers. One of the requirements was to pick up garbage on the trail which was almost a deal breaker for Ben but he rallied. He found a Capri Sun straw wrapper! Riding the “shovel” bus and swimming at Ruby’s Inn were highlights too.
Personally I can’t get enough of the red rock, contrasting green trees, and blue blue sky. The temperatures were dreamy for mid July. Sign me up for Goblin Valley come April (grin, sigh).
