Zion and Bryce National Parks and Panguitch Utah

Zion and Bryce National Parks are close enough to combine together into one get-a-way. In May of 2006 we surprised two of our closest friends with a trip there. Flying into St. George, Utah and renting a car we checked out Kolob Canyon on our way to our lodging.

Tim and I had won our stay in at Panguitch Anglers Inn at a charity auction.  Conveniently located between the two parks,  this made a perfect home base for several nights while we explored both National Parks and the surrounding area.

The next morning bright and early we headed to Zion National Park.  Once you reach the visitors center we parked and either walked or took the in-park bus system.  There are wonderful trails to hike, plus bicycling, rock climbing, bird watching, and camping.  Certain times of the year permits can be obtained for further exploration into the canyons and the Narrows.
