Bryce Canyon Day 3

We went to the two grocery stores in Bryce Canyon City, Ruby’s and also Foster’s on Hwy. 12. BOY they sure are proud of their groceries….unbelievable prices!  $8 for a box of cereal, $8 for those 1# propane cylinders, $8 for a pint of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, $1.99 for a soft drink.  Definitely a good idea to bring everything you need with you to visit the national parks! Trouble is, we’re on our 3rd park in a row and we are running low on some stuff.

Hey have you seen the new Bounty paper towels with Dawn detergent embedded in them? It’s water-activated…great for washing dishes while camping! It’s quite expensive though, I saw a pack of 3 rolls at a “normal” grocery store back in Sedona for around $8.  It wouldn’t be too bad if you could split the pack with a couple friends, it sure looks handy.

There is a big bad black cloud right over our heads, and it’s starting to thunder. Poor Princess Roxie hates that! She is snuggling with me on my bed….she only gets on the bed when she’s really scared.

Deb’s mouse and his wife have gone to a better place. We hope they haven’t left any children behind!

We took the park shuttle today to finish up seeing the points we missed yesterday.  I loved this twisted old tree!  tree

On the way back to camp we saw a pronghorn by the side of the road. With no pronghorns.  He looked pretty scruffy, I think he’s shedding his winter coat.

Bryce Canyon

Arch1

It’s a sunny/rainy day, can’t seem to make up it’s mind! Jeanne and I went into Bryce this morning and saw part of the park before it started raining really hard. The highest point is over 9100′ in elevation and it was COLD up there!  The photo colors change with the sun or rain on them, I see. It’s interesting, you can walk just a few feet along one of the scenic lookouts and see completely different scenery!  I really like this park a lot; it’s my favorite so far! We have Capitol Reef, Arches and Canyonlands to go, plus Canyon de Chelly so we’ll see if it’ll hold it’s top spot.

At one scenic turnout this big raven flew up and landed on the wall and didn’t mind people coming right up to it for photos!  A few days ago in Zion I saw one that was the same way, I went right up to it and chatted awhile and he turned his head this way and that but wasn’t a bit afraid!  DSCN5842

It was quite cold last night, around 35 degrees. It’s supposed to be much nicer for the next 3 days of our stay here, sunny and around 70/40. The town of Bryce Canyon City is very cute but very expensive!  We checked out the little rock shop, which was awesome! They had big piles of cool rocks outside that were $2.50 to $10 a pound. I picked up a few really small ones, due to my space AND money restrictions! I got five pretty rocks for $4.  This is the best one, it’s “Crazy Lace Agate” about 2″ x 2″.   I guess it must have cost me about $1! DSCN5866
