Day 3 – Bryce Canyon

Enjoy breakfast at the hotel before we embark on a day of touring spectacular Bryce Canyon National Park. Experience thousands of delicately carved spires as they rise in brilliant color from the amphitheaters of Bryce Canyon. Millions of years of wind, water and geologic mayhem have shaped and etched the cliffs at Bryce, which isn’t actually a canyon but the eastern slope of the Paunsaguant Plateau. Motor along the rim road, where magnificent spires known as “hoodoos” show colors of pink, orange, and red. We may see wildlife, including elk, coyotes, marmots, and prairie dogs. Bryce Canyon is famous for its hiking trails, offering a closer look at bird species and colorful wildflowers. Return to the inn for a restful evening.

It consists of canyons and plateaus carved by two mighty rivers – the Colorado and the Green. Later we’ll return to our hotel for a restful evening.

Our first stop today will be at the Navajo Nation Visitor Center at Monument Valley. Here you will have a spectacular view of some of the iconic rock formations in the Valley.

You’ll have time for a stop in the Trading post before we continue on towards Lake Powell. Our first adventure will be a cruise on Lake Powell to Antelope Canyon. On the cruise you will get an up-close opportunity to view the narrow, colorful, and sculpted geology of the lower end of Lake Powell as you travel in some of the famous slot canyons.
