We head to Bryce Canyon National Park and some cooler weather for great hiking and running on the fantastic trails. This was the ninth National Park visited during our Airstream adventure across the country. After an important message from their dog, Annie, we get our campground up and head for the fantastic vistas and beautiful trails. We walk Bristlecone loop trail, the Peek-A-Boo trail, and Queen’s Garden trail to see some amazing hoodoos, while John enjoys running in this amazing park and does a 10-mile run that includes the entire Rim Trail from Bryce Point to Fairyland Canyon. We also saw the views from Sunset, Sunrise, and Bryce points. The great accessibility of the park, the cooler weather, incredible views and less crowds made this Utah park one of our favorite places.
