Red Canyon

I know I said I was going to do Bryce Canyon today but I'm still pondering which pictures to use!  I took quite a few!

Anyway, beginning where I left off yesterday.  Utah 14 ends at US 89 so, following the signs, we turned North and drove through a wide and pretty valley.  We never did come down from the mountain just hit a plateau.  Then you turn onto highway 12 towards Bryce Canyon.

Before you arrive at Bryce you pass through Red Canyon.  A part of Dixie National Forest and a Forest Service site.  The road also passed through three tunnels in the red rock.

The Forest Service has a nice Visitor's Center there (first Forest Service center I've seen but they likely have others.)  Quinn and I stretched our legs before Bryce.  I think I ditched my winter coat here!  It was cold!

 Also, I noticed a very nice paved bicycling/walking pathway along the road.  It went for MILES.
