On Highway 63 in Southern Utah, Bryce, UT
Please see the "Bryce Canyon Update - Hotels (10/31/2016)" under Discussions|Message Board listing hotel info and itinerary.
This will be a 3-day weekend excursion to explore beautiful Bryce Canyon! Several hotels close to Bryce have been suggested and you'll make your own reservations (two hotel nights - Sat & Sun). Memorial Day is Monday, 5/29. So we'll drive up Saturday morning (4-hour drive) and drive back Monday night. We'll meet for lunch on Saturday afternoon and for Dinner on Sunday night. We'll also meet after breakfast on Sun and Mon to set up carpools for the day's activities, and then you'll be on your own to explore the sights. The park service provides a shuttle service and cars are not allowed in certain parts of the Park. There is a small entrance fee for the park. I will probably schedule some EasyWalks in sightseeing locations. If you need a hotel buddy to share a room or need a ride (or can drive and offer a ride), please post that in the Comments. Please make your hotel reservations NOW (in November 2016), as the hotels close to Bryce are almost booked up already for that holiday weekend! There are also some campgrounds in the park (see link below). I'm not a camper, so please research camping info yourself if you prefer to camp. I haven't been to Bryce yet, and am looking forward to seeing the beautiful sights during the lovely spring weather. Hope you all can join me!
