Bryce Canyon is northwest of Zion, about a 90 minute drive. We drove the entire park in a short half-day trip and camped at Sunset Campground – don’t miss the sunset at Sunset Point! Just after the sun sets, the hoodoos (pictured above) light up in a glow.
After Bryce, we got back down to Arizona and checked out the viewpoint of Horseshoe Bend near Page, AZ. This is a section of the Colorado River that twists 270 degress, just north of where the Grand Canyon begins.
We couldn’t go through Navajo Nation and skip Antelope Canyon. The canyon is only accessible by tours. There are two options, upper and lower. We chose the lower tour. Luckily that day wasn’t too hot in the desert, but the line of tourists with iPads was pretty intense. The beauty in the canyon made it well worth it.
A beautiful stop in Navajo Nation was their very own secluded Monument pictured above where you can view cliff dwellings from the 13th century.
A place we absolutely loved staying, was at The View campground at Monument Valley. They also have hotel, cabin and tent options if you’re not traveling there in an RV! Monument Valley is a stunning place, something to understand you must see for yourself.
