trouble I really did visit Bryce, but due to a dead light
meter battery I have no pictures to prove it. Also missing are
shots of the breathtaking views along Highway 12 which links
Capital Reef with Bryce. Highway 12 crosses the mountains at
up to 9,000 ft. as it traverses Dixie National Forest and skirts
Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument. This drive was
surprisingly beautiful and one of the highpoints of the trip.
We left Bryce
during an early morning snow squall, arriving several hours
later at the eastern entrance Zion National Park. The weather
cleared, revealing a crystal clear winter sky, just in time
for our arrival.
