A quick post today. Today was just a big driving day, with around 300 miles covered. The day started in Death Valley, California, and went all the way through 4 different states to arrive at Kanab, Utah. Kanab will be our home for a few days while we visit Bryce Canyon and Zion National Parks.
Our journey took us through California, Nevada, Arizona and Utah, with lots of in-and-out in each of them. I think we crossed state borders about 8 times!
The driving was SPECTACULAR. I don’t think I have ever done anything like it. I have seen a bit of it in previous trips to the Grand Canyon, but to have incredible views for 5 hours was something else. Especially when we got to Arizona and Utah, we were greeted with hulking red rocks and canyons.
Kanab is a cute town, looking like it is mostly catering for tourists. Indeed, the hotel clerk was telling us that things are tough with very few international visitors for the last 2 years and counting. He was very happy to see us, and I guess it was nice to contribute a little. Thinking about COVID, it definitely feels a little different here… way less masks (not many to be honest) as it seems to be if you are vaxxed then masks are not really a thing. We are staying vigilant, and not really seeing many people anyway!
So that’s it for today. Off to either Zion or Bryce Canyon tomorrow.
Oh, and today’s burger was The Habit Burger Grill a little out of Las Vegas. A solid burger, just lacked character.
