Today we travel to Bryce Canyon National Park.  But first, we had duties as assigned… We were “Deparkers”.  This meant that we, along with another couple, were to stand at the exit to the RV park, and, as each Airstream rig pulled out, we were to check to see that their mirrors, hitch, lights, vents, etc. were in proper order for safe travels… It took about one hour for 25 Airstreams to depart.  We then finished hitching up and headed on our way…

We drove along the “Highway Through Time”, so named for its geologic formations… We stopped along the way, at about elevation 9,300 ft., and viewed the scenery…

The Aspens are starting to turn into fall colors…

After about two hours we were at Bryce Canyon City.  The town seems to consist of two motels, several restaurants, a “Barn and Grill” dinner show place (more on this tomorrow…), a state-run liquor store, a post office, a giant gift shop, and a gas station, all apparently owned by the same family…

We were shown to our campsite by the “Parkers”, who had arrived early…

We walked to the bus/shuttle stop and signed up for a bus tour on Sunday and learned about the shuttle service offered through the park…

We enjoyed happy hours with other caravaners from New Jersey…

And an enjoyable time was had by all…
