Don’t let the beautiful valley fool you. A better place to stay would be to camp out anywhere. The restaurant here is poor food for a lot of money. They give you canned green beans as a side. You have got to be joking! Trip advisor has many complaints about the lodging and the food. As with most of the area good food is hard to find. I will go out on a limb and say that the Bryce Canyon Lodge does put out a pretty good meal. A bit pricey, but hey, you are on a vacation. Live it up a little. Plus you are in a lodge that was built in 1929. Beautiful place to eat.
Last Saturday, July 9th we had a hail storm to beat all. Then a downpour to beat all and lighting and thunder to beat all. Scared the shit out of me. Here is what the creek looked like in less than a minute. It went from a one inch deep by 18 inch wide little fellow to this monster instantly. Also, sprained my ankle just after the storm. Bummer, a bad one. I fell on left foot and right arm. Giant bruise on the arm and a big, big left foot. Yikes. Getting better each day.
