7:33 am - Tuesday - October 24th - Bryce Canyon - 30º F, 83% humidity, wind 8 mph out of the west by northwest.....once again.....no wind detected here at Ruby's Inn RV Park. Forecast high for today is 63º F with another cloudless day promised! I did not turn the water spigot off last night (forgot), but it didn't get below freezing long enough to freeze anything, and it looks like tonight will be the same......we're in the middle of a 'heatwave'!
We really don't like hiking the same trails over and over again when we are in a new place, so we try to organize our hikes with as little of that as possible. In Yellowstone it was unavoidable in numerous cases as many of the hikes we did were 'out and back' hikes, but here in Bryce Canyon NP there are a LOT of 'loop' trails which enable one to do a large circle ending back at your starting point without covering the same ground twice. We like that. When we were doing the Sunrise Point/Navajo loop trail on Saturday we saw a sign at one of the junctures pointing to the 'Peek-A-Boo' loop trail.
