The trip is from Lewis & Clark Monument, Illinois, to Kickapoo State Park, Illinois, by way of the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, Arizona
Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah
The next morning we drove from Kodchrome Basin State Park north to Cannonville, where we turned northwest on Rte. 12. At Rte. 63 we turned south. We stopped briefly at the Bryce Canyon visitor center. We continued on south to Bryce Canyon National Park. We secured a good site in the North Campground.
We walked to the visitor center, where we caught a shuttle that took us all around the park. We got off at every stop to look around. Like Kodachrome Basin, the attraction here were the rock formations, only on a much vaster scale.
Here are close-ups of some unique formations.
We completed the loop on the shuttle at the visitor center then walked back to the campground. We relaxed the rest of the day at our site. We were developing some worrisome problems. We developed a tank leak, couldn’t start the generator (a real problem since there was no electric hook-up at our site), the hot water heater was sporadic, and the house battery wasn’t holding a charge. Nothing to cancel a trip about, just irritations, but the balky hot water heater made for quick showers.
