Bryce Canyon to Zion
10.21.19 - 10.21.19 36 °F
Today our only goal was to drive from Bryce Canyon to Springdale Utah, where we will spend all day at Zion National Park on Tuesday. After we checked out of the hotel, we went back in to Bryce to look at Fairyland Canyon, which we had intentionally skipped yesterday. After that stop, we ventured into the Dixie National Forest, climbed to 10,500 feet and visited Cedar Breaks National Monument. Cedar Breaks is a natural amphitheater, stretching across 3 miles (4.8 km), with a depth of over 2,000 feet (610 m). The elevation of the rim of the amphitheater is over 10,000 feet (3,000 m) above sea level. The viewpoints were chilly as the temperature was in the mid thirties and the wind was gusting up the canyon to near 50 mph. The Monument Visitor Center was closed for the season, but the views were great. It was then on to Zion.
