More Canyons: Red in Bryce tonight

Here's the Gray Beards East of Bryce Canyon. Also a good picuture of the picnic lunch on the way to Hite, UT last Wednesday. Mel is telling stories! Fisher is busy eating chips, and Nate is busy thinking, it appears. This Wednesday, tomorrow, will be a similar trip, except no Fisher, no Nate and no Sag Wagon lunch, just the Gray Beards. Tonight Neil called from just past Tropic and outside Bryce Canyon at about 6:30pm where they were having dinner. It has been another difficult ride today. Lots of elevation and then down big hills and more elevation, about 40 miles all together. That makes them pretty close to 1000 miles, half the total distance of their adventure. They are probably looking forward to the boredom of some long flat roads for a change. Even with all the difficulty, they are determined to finish what they have started. They are planning on camping in Red Canyon, a camp we stayed at when we had rented a motor home, about 3 years ago. It was a pretty campground. It is another 4 miles down the road from where they ate dinner tonight. The bikers they have run into going the other direction say the Utah part of the trans-Am route is spectacular -- so much different scenery. Tomorrow they head to Panguitch and then up and over the mountain and past Panguitch Lake, to Cedar Breaks then to Cedar City. They're not sure how far they will get. Enjoy the journey -- look for happy things each day.
