Visiting Bryce Canyon meant a bit of a detour, and will involve doubling back after we leave, but it was certainly well worth coming here.
It is equally as breathtaking as the Grand Canyon, but on a much smaller scale, so we have managed to hike around many of the trails below the canyon rim, in and out of the amazing rock formations.
