In Arches Delicate Arch. I think being there for sunset is one of those lifetime events.

In Bryce you're wasting you time if you don't at least do Navajo Loop and Queens Garden. Two or three hours.

Thanks guys, I was not really sure about hiking in Bryce because I was told that there will be snow there. Is this true because at 9,000 ft I would imagine there would be too much snow to hike without snowshoes and all of that stuff?

Ooops. I didn't realize you were going in late March. I think you will have a snow issue.

When you get there ask at the visitors center. At the least walk the rim between Sunrise and Sunset Points.

Also, from Sunset Point walk down the trail about 100 yards. It's wide and not steep and it will at least get you below the top of the hoodoos.

You will most likely have snow in March in Bryce. I've been there more than a couple times that time of year and there is always at least some snow. It depends on the winter how much. Most of the time even if there is alot you can still head down the trails as people will tromp through it to create a path. If it isn't snowy it will likely be muddy. I'd give it a try unless it is icey. One of my favorite memories was a mid march visit. It was eons ago and we were the only ones there- literally, not even a ranger. We hiked through the muddy snow to the Wall Street section of the Navajo trail. It was memorable for its beauty and peace.

Way behind on suggestions here but wanted to say LOVED the gobblins at Gobblins state park.

In Moab, www.deserthighlights.com does rappelling trips - so much fun!

Hey guys,

With 27 days to go, final preparations are underway. I ordered my Delorme atlas and it came in yesterday. Not much else to say but wanted to thank all of you that have made this trip possible.

The dinosaur tracks are at N38* 49.900 W109* 45.723
The BLM road turns east off 191 23 miles north of Moab. There is a BLM sign next to the parking area where you walk up to see the tracks.
Have a great trip!

Hey in case you didn't know just wanted to alert you to the fact that hwy 89 is closed between Page and Bitter Springs Junction. There was a landslip on the cutaway. No telling how long it wil take to repair.

I can't tell if your plan has you headed that way, but thought you should know. There is a detour which will make the journey about an hour longer.

Hey everybody,

This will probably be my last post on here. I wanted to thank anyone and everyone who answered my original question. Some people I would like to thank are myer, tomfuller, spirobulldog, dayle, insandy, and emalloy. This trip would not have been possible with you guys and I am looking forward to write about the trip after I come back. It was definitely fun planning the trip and am already looking forward to my next trip.

Thanks,
dshamritsky
