At the risk of repeating myself when I said I was pretty sure Zion National Park was not like anything else I’ve ever seen, I think I have to take it a step further by telling you that it may in fact be Bryce Canyon National Park that takes the prize. Don’t get me wrong, I fell in love with the sheer magnitude of Zion, but Bryce is another world.
We are home again, it was an awesome road trip. We left Springdale, UT late Wednesday morning because we just couldn’t seem to tear ourselves away. Our first night on the road was back to Vegas, then Reno, then Ashland.

When I first met Lyle, online, (there is a vast world of travelers who also happen to own B&B’s) we discussed his B&B, why he moved to Peru and how could I get some of his recipes!
A few days ago in this post, I made mention of the fact that Ashland takes Halloween very seriously! It rained for several hours today and it was still sprinkling when the parade got under way, but then the storm broke and the rain stopped. It was as it should be!
