Bryce Canyon, Bryce Point To Sunrise Point
Wednesday: (05/15) Eggs and ham with hash browned potatoes for breakfast. After breakfast I was off on a hike. I caught the shuttle bus out to Bryce Point and hiked down into the amphitheater (pretty rock area.) You start with a nice high view.
I made the Peek-a-boo Trail loop and then had to repeat my hike for about 1.5 miles until I connected with the Queens Garden Trail and hiked up the hill to Sunrise Point.
The total hike distance was about 7.5 miles with a 2687 foot climb. 643 foot elevation change climbing out to Sunrise point, a 926 foot drop to the bottom from Bryce Point. Some great views along the trail.
Above left I'm relaxing in one of the tunnels. Some of the pinacles on the right.
A look at the trail, above left and right.
A couple of holes in the rock on the left. The trail leads under a wall of spires.
When I got Up I rewarded myself with an ice cream bar from the General Store. I caught the shuttle home and Lou prepared banana peanut butter milk shakes. I failed to mention the ice cream bar. My lunch along the trail was tuna salad and crackers. Lou and Dawn did some exploration on the rim trail, visited the Lodge and Visitor Center and visited Ruby's just outside the Park. They had lunch at Ruby's Cafe. I took a nice afternoon nap. For dinner, Lou made a Chinese concoction with sprouts, broccoli, onions, baby corn, carrots and chicken.
