Bryce Canyon- Part II

Hi all,
 We sure are having a time in Utah, if you ever get a chance do the tour and check out these fabulous national parks, grab it!
 We continued our tour of Bryce and boy was it fun. Wendy really pulled a good one, she had read on a trail ride to the canyon bottom and thought a great way to see the canyon and not have to hike up to get out. Although neither of us had rode a horse in over 30 years she decided it would be fun.
 So she booked the three hour trail ride which was the longer of rides available. The Peek a Boo loop was a 1:00 pm ride that took us to the heart of Bryce Canyon. We saw features named Wall of Windows, The Chessman, and Thors Hammer amongst the thousands of unnamed hoodoos and red rock spires.
 We lucked out and got a perfect weather day for this with just the right amount of clouds to help enhance our pics.
 Wendy got a big old horse named Tuff and I got a tall mule named Keystone (how fitting my favorite beer). Wendy really had a time as Tuff really liked to walk the edge- Wendy's side was sore from leaning away from the edge.

 They make one stop for a potty break at the canyon bottom, good thing they helped dismount or we would have fallen over for sure. And you just know how we felt at the rides end. Wendy and I both grabbed onto a nearby rail and waited until our legs came back.
 Overall we had a great time and a memory that will last for a long time.

We had one more day in the park along with Tim and Renee to complete the drive to end of the park.
 Bryce Canyon is one beautiful place and you can just stand and stare at the vistas for hours never seeming to get it all in.

 Our next stop was a short drive to Panguitch, Utah. Panguitch is a neat old west town that had couple old west antique shops and not a whole lot more. Our reason for Panguitch was some Internet catching up and a few other chores needed to get done. ( Its not all fun and games, you know)).
