4 DAY/3 NIGHT WALKING ADVENTURE
Bryce Canyon Hiking Adventure
Walk Among the Hoodoos...
Visiting Bryce Canyon will find you walking among the tall thin spires that delicately rise from the badlands. Brilliant pink, white and red cliffs shaped over millions of years bring a sense of wonder while by day we weave our way through canyon trails under crystalline blue sky.
Early evening sun saturates the red canyon walls as you disconnect from the day to day and reconnect with nature among the amphitheaters of Bryce Canyon National Park. Relax in these natural surroundings and join Gene and Jo Ann Taylor co-founders of the Walking Connection, for a hiker’s getaway in Southern Utah.
Then by night high-quality darkness is ablaze with starlight. With clean dry air and lack of light pollution Bryce Canyon is one of earth’s darkest places where starry nights will be a dramatic ending to an exhilarating day.
Your experience of Bryce Canyon explores the dynamic, mesmerizing landscape filled with geological wonders that defy description. Hiking and trekking in Southern Utah is a perfect place for a weekend escape with a small group of like-minded travelers.
