Murdo Girl..On the 9..Bryce Canyon

I don’t know where to start. I’m speechless. How can I show you just a few of the dozens of pictures we took today?

This small town of Kanab, Utah is central to so many unbelievable geological wonders. It’s not just a stop along the way. It is a stand alone destination vacation. After spending two full days visiting the Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, and taking the drive along Highway 12 to Escalante, we have barely scratched the surface of things to do and see here. We’re only staying one more day, but this is definitely a place we hope to come back to in the future.

This is our day in pictures

The RV Park host and hostess recommended the Houston Trails End Cafe for breakfast. I had a vegetable omelet, hash browns and sourdough toast. The picture shows what was left after I had eaten my fill. It was so delicious, I just couldn’t leave it there, so I asked for a “to go” container and we drove my omelet around in the car until it turned gross enough for me to throw it away. Kip’s pancakes, thick applewood smoked bacon, and eggs were also good and more than he could eat. The cowboy picture was taken at the Cafe. Just to be clear.. I’m still collecting water tower pictures not statues of cowboys.

The pictures we took at all the scenic overlooks in Bryce Canyon National Park, and our drive to Escalante will tell their own story. 



I love this pic of reference to his picture of me yesterday.  (I couldn’t find a dumpster.)



Pretty amazing. Don’t you agree?

We found a meadow where the dogs could run their little hearts out.

Going home after a fun day. The weather was perfect!

Look out the windows kids! You’re not even paying attention!


Tomorrow we’re going to Zion National Park, and also The little Hollywood Museum here in Kanab.

My first thought when I wake up in the morning is “Yeah..I’m still in the motor home!”

    Beautiful pictures. I can’t imagine how beautiful it must be. Your pictures are giving me an idea though. Thanks for the ride. They don’t have any water towers out there? I am surprised……not really.

    I will never forget my awe and amazement at seeing Zion and Bryce and that area. You brought it all back to me. Pics are beautiful. Yeah, nice feeling to wake up and know you’re in the motor home, sweet cousin. Traveling is a joy.
