bryce canyon = pie canyon

This is where I had my three day pie trifecta. You can't miss the place on your way to the park. I stayed at the Bryce Canyon Pines Campground (practically) across the street. Very convenient! Btw: I rarely eat out, for two reasons: it gets expensive and I eat way healthier shopping and cooking for myself. BUT after a 5 mile hike with lulu strapped to my back and the cold winds settling in, I broke down and ordered the hot turkey smothered in gravy with cranberry sauce. OMG YUM. HEAVEN. I highly recommend it! Happy Thanksgiving!! :)

this makes me laugh...

This is one way to save money on a tower! Just paint the roof so planes can see the airport -- ingenious! lol

best friends animal sanctuary!

Volunteering at the Best Friend's Animal Sanctuary today! At a sprawling 3,700 acres, BFAS is the largest no kill animal sanctuary in the US (maybe even the world, gotta check that)!! Home to everything from pot belly pigs, horses, bunnies, birds, dogs, cats, etc... This place is truly amazing! I stumbled upon it on my way up to Bryce on Thurs so I stopped and did a tour. I was so impressed, I'm back to volunteer today, before headingn to Zion!

I'll be with the bunnies all day in the Rabbit House! Horses and pigs are under quarantine right now -- equine virus.

I'll update with more info and pics soon! :)Sent from my Verizon Wireless BlackBerry

cloudy = no star gazing = eat more pie

Had an absurdly stupendous day horseback riding and hiking through the canyon! Took some amazing pics! Hundreds actually. It's gonna take me days to go through them. Had planned on doing the Night Ranger lead star gazing tonight but clouds rolled in, so I decided to eat more PIE!

Last night was a beautiful night, so I did some "Diana" lead star gazing of my own. While I'm certain the ranger lead telescope gazing is surreal, the night sky in Bryce is magical, even to the lonely naked, untrained eye.

Bryce is a uniquely special place -- and you can get really good pie. :)Sent from my Verizon Wireless BlackBerry

traditional blueberry today!

Today in Bryce was a mix of every precipitation: rain, sleet, hail, freezing rain, snow! There was the brief occasional break of sun that came in 4 minute intervals, so I decided to eat more pie! Banana cream didn't really do it for me yesterday, so I went with traditional blueberry today :).

I did the Bryce driving tour today and timed my photo ops with the occasional breaks in weather. Bryce Point is breathtaking btw!! Tomorrow I'll be doing a morning horseback ride through the canyon, followed by some overdue hiking :)

Awesome pie! :) Sent from my Verizon Wireless BlackBerry

just call me "handy"!!

Just installed new paper towel holder in the camper! This is a big deal in my world! And yes, I'm aware the placement right over the burners could spell trouble, but I'll be careful!! :)  Sent from my Verizon Wireless BlackBerry
