RV Bucket List Location: Bryce Canyon National Park

Bryce Canyon has been on my bucket list for as long as I can remember. So you can imagine my excitement and expectations of what this place would be like. Hiking the Hoodoos put this place on another level. For RVers this should be on your map of places to visit, it has beautiful views for all activity levels. The drive through Bryce and back is a must do. Then, if you’re feeling adventurous take one of the awe-inspiring hikes down into the Hoodoos. 

Danielle and I went to scope out this place and I was also scouting out a Sunrise Hike the next day. The roads leading up to Bryce had awesome views and places to park and hike in great locations.

As with many National Parks, you are able to see very scenic things from the road. You can drive all the way through Bryce and back, stopping at every major viewpoint in a matter of hours.

There are so many spots that you can park and hike along the rim. We LOVED going here in the winter because the weather was perfect for hiking but the best part is we didn’t have to deal with crowds. We would go miles without seeing another car and people on the trails was almost not existent. Bryce (15) Bryce (17)

The next morning I took off around 4:30 am to head to Sunrise Point to start my hike. I started on the Rim Trail via Sunrise Point, headed down the Queen Garden, Peekaboo Loop, Najavo Loop to the Rim Trail above till it put me back at Sunrise Point. It was around 9 miles and except for the area near the Rim Trail I didn’t see another person on the entire hike.

Although it looks cold in the pictures, it was around 55 degrees and felt perfect while hiking. DSC_0104 DSC_0342_tonemapped

It was so incredible to know I was walking among those HUGE Hoodoos. A few times I almost pinched myself. I was just able to slowly walk around while the lighting changed by the second, bringing out crazy Orange and Red colors on the path.

I spoke with this RV couple briefly while I was on my way up and they were on their way down into Bryce Canyon. I joked with them that they slept in and missed the good light, when everything was Orange. The lady laughed and said “We’re retired, we don’t get up that early anymore!!”DSC_0622_tonemapped2

This is a great place to go hiking with your kids. The trails are safe, wide and well marked. DSC_0698_tonemapped2 photo 3 (30)
