Trek Travel Day 3 - Bryce Canyon and the Hoodoos
Tuesday’s ride was short so we slept in and didn’t start until 9:00. The 32 mile out-and-back included 2,100 ft of climbing, almost all of it in the outbound leg south from the lodge up to Rainbow Point (first picture). The return leg was mostly downhill, pausing only to check out the Natural Bridge (technically an arch).
After coasting back to the lodge we enjoyed a Taco Tuesday lunch before regrouping to hike the Queen’s Garden Trail, returning via the Navajo Loop. The unique geologic formations are called Hoodoos - you can read about them here.
As you can see in the group picture, our fellow riders were all normal people. Like Beth and I they were all adventuresome and fit, but none were pro athletes.
