To Bryce Canyon National Park Via State Route 14

Aloha Everyone,

After purchasing provisions in Cedar City, we took State Route 14 towards Bryce Canyon National Park. It was a 40 miles drive on Route 14 before we switched to Highway 89. The mountain road is steep and winding, but it is also scenic with many photo opportunities. Forests of Aspen wearing fall colors as we approached the Markagunt Plateau were absolutely breathtaking.

The two of us had a roadside picnic lunch overlooking Navajo Lake, a small reservoir in northwestern Kane County in southern Utah. At 10,000 ft elevation, air was cool and conducive for J.J. to take a brief nap. My lunch was primarily salad while I added large cooked shrimps for J.J.

KOA Cannonville is located about 15 miles from Bryce Canyon National Park. We are happy to be able to find a site for Honu surrounded by a stunning desert canyon.

Aloha -- Cathi
