A week before my Las Vegas photography workshop, Keith loaded up all our camping equipment into the overhead gear box and drove our new Subaru Outback from Boston, through Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Virginia, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and then finally into Las Vegas, Nevada, where he picked me up from the airport a week later when I flew in. On the fourth day of camping in Zion National Park, we took a day trip to Bryce Canyon National Park. On our way back from Bryce Canyon, we drove along the very uphill Utah State Highway 14 to Cedar City, UT, to try an fast food we couldn’t find in Massachusetts (get the buffalo chicken burger at Arby’s!).
Here’s Keith with our car at the highest point along UT-14, 3048 metres (10,000 feet) above sea level. Ours was the only car with a Massachusetts licence plate that I saw anywhere in Nevada or Utah.
Bryce Canyon National Park was less than a two-hour drive from Zion National Park. But it was quite a bit higher in elevation. Here is the Bryce Canyon terrain with lots of snow still on the ground….
