American Locations 27

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 2

The shuttle only covers about half the park. What it doesn’t cover the roads are very narrow and twisty. But with our motor home being only 23 feet long, we had no trouble with these roads. So we started the day with seeing what we didn’t get to on the shuttle. It was a cold and windy day, especially so at Yaquita Point, the highest point in the park at 9100 feet.

We drove to the other places the shuttled didn’t reach the day before.

After, we drove out of the park to the nearest town to stock up on groceries. Back at our site, I found we could access the Rim Trail from the campground, so off I went to hike a bit of it.

From there I took the Fairyland Trail nearly to the bottom.

By this point I was getting pretty far down below the Rim Trail.

And a lot closer to some of the formations.

In this photo you can see the trail curving downward.

And on down.

Of course, what goes down must come up.

I got back to the motor home and crashed. After dinner, we both walked along the Rim Trail for a ways. But we didn’t go down, we stayed up on top.
