Ultimate Road Trip With Kids – Bryce Canyon National Park

    We ate “breakfast” (at about an early lunchtime) and headed into the park. Bryce Canyon National Park is well known for the “hoodoo” – a rock formation found most abundantly in this park. We attended a ranger program overlooking the hoodoo amphitheater.


    The kids learned about the geology of the area and the rock formations of Bryce, Zion, and Grand Canyon National Parks as well as the “grand staircase” of rock layers. It was a beautiful park and was definitely worth more time than what we had allowed.



    We were allowed to walk right amongst the hoodoos – but due to the weather (so hot) and the lack of appropriate footwear (no sandals or tennis shoes were recommended on the paths – only hiking boots), we did not hike too far. We walked down just a bit to get a closer look and viewed a window carved from the stone. The kids completed the junior ranger programs and we packed up to leave.


    However, our car did not start! We had forgotten to unplug the cooler charger for our time in the park and the battery was drained. Fortunately, the Rangers were able to help- and so we were on our way. We stopped for a late lunch and had a long drive through Utah to Arches National Park.
