It was nearing the end of our trip and we wanted to get Lexi out for another hike. There was still a short hike at Red Canyon that we hadn’t done so this was the perfect activity.  Lexi had hiked with us previously in Red Canyon and enjoyed it so much that this was a no brainer.  Check out the …

The Riggs Spring Loop Trail would be the last big hike we would do at Bryce Canyon National Park, at least for this trip! This loop trail is 8.5 miles with a 2248 feet elevation gain. The combination of distance and elevation gain would mean a much harder hike for me and we’d be in bear country so I wasn’t …

Cedar Breaks National Monument is located about 45 minutes from where we were staying in Panguitch and there was a hike in the area we wanted to do. Keith and I had actually been to nearby Brian Head Ski Resort in March 2017 and got a peak at the amphitheater.  Since we were close by, we decided to plan an …

We had biked in Red Canyon earlier in the trip and had decided to ride another section of the shared use path all …

We hiked the Figure 8 Combination  the day before and chose the Fairyland Loop next. The hike is 8 miles with a 1716 foot elevation gain. The park guide suggests it’s a 4-5 hour hike and rates it as strenuous. On this hike you will see the Chinese Wall, Tower Bridge and tall hoodoos. This trail is typically less crowded …

Lindsey Huster Blog Posts Leave a Comment

Bryce Canyon National Park is located in southwestern Utah and encompasses over 35,000 acres. It is actually not a canyon, but a giant group of natural amphitheaters. Geological features called hoodoos are what make this park so special. The hoodoos are odd-shaped pillars of rock formed by erosion. Hoodoos can be found on every continent, but Bryce Canyon has the …
