It's a long drive from Page, AZ to Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah, but there is a shortcut - the Cottonwood Wash road.
Forty miles of dirt road sounds bad until you look at the scenery.
Wow - it looks like something from another planet!
A close up.
There's even wildlife!
And then you get to Bryce Canyon. Wow!
I walked down a little ways among the hoodoos.
To see the Queen in the Queen's Garden.
Another overlook, Fairyland Point, is one of my favorites. It's actually just outside the entrance to the park.
Then another 40 miles on dirt road back to Page. On the way is Grosvenor Arch.
And more beautiful scenery the WHOLE way home!
