From the city Page, our last destination, we drove about 2,5h to reach the Bryce Canyon.
The landscape in this region of Utah is really nice. We sometimes felt like at home in Austria because of the forests and the grass land.
Before you come to the Canyon you'll drive through the curved tunnels.
We arrived here at 5PM and stopped for a few minutes to take pictures.
After a short stop we drove on and 15 min later we arrived at the City Bryce.
This is a nice old western town with some small local shops.
We discovered about 15 min the city but then we drove on.
3 miles on the road later, we came to the Visitor Center and the Fee Station of the Canyon.
Studying the Map we got from the Visitor Center, we decided to drive to the Inspiration Point.
This was a really awesome Point because from there you have a great overview of the Canyon.
Now it was about 9PM and we could see the beautiful sunset at the Canyon.
But the problem was that we had not planned our overnight stay.
So we checked on Google Maps the nearest possibility to park our car and sleep inside.
We had luck to found a reservoir with camping place half an hour away from the Canyon.
As we arrived on the small lake, we had trouble to find the campground, maybe because it was already very dark.
So we improvised and parked next to the gravel road on an open area.
It was already very late and so we drunk only 1 beer before we went at about 11:30PM to bed.
Full of motivation we started the day, on which we had planned a long trip to Las Vegas and a stopover at the Zion National Park.
At about 8AM we moved on.
After a 1,5h ride we saw a very exotic coffee shop, The Rock Stop. It looks like a big rock.
With the coffee we were awake enough to continue our trip, but we were still hungry.
By a happy coincidence, we drove 5min later past a german bakery, which looked very inviting.
Now we were able to start our way to our next destination, the Zion National Park.
