This special camp program is designed to be a heavenly hiking experience, but we will have a good bit of driving to do on our first day; that, however, will afford us the opportunity to build and bond together talking, singing songs, and playing games together in the van.
Once everyone has arrived and we have loaded all of our gear into the van, we will be Utah bound. We will indeed be doing a good bit of driving on this first day, but then we will have little to no driving to do on the following days.
If we were to drive straight to Bryce Canyon National Park, our first key destination, it would be about an eight hour drive. With all of our stopping, however, we will likely take up to twelve hours to actually get to Bryce. As soon as we get to Bryce, we will get right to pitching our tents. Then, we will be ready to enjoy our first night in the midst of some of the most beautiful nature that this country has to offer.
We will keep our tents pitched at the same site for the first three nights.
Our first two full days will be spent enjoying and exploring Bryce Canyon National Park. Indeed, we will be doing quite a good bit of hiking each day.
Healthy, conscious snacks are regularly available.
In the evening, we may roast natural marshmallows from Chicago Soy Dairy or make smores at the campfire.
We will make some enjoyable, but simple, breakfasts at our camp site each morning.
We will pack some lunches in our backpacks to enjoy when we are ready for a break during our exploration each day.
After long days of hiking, dinners will be longer, more relaxed meals at our camp site.
After spending three nights at Bryce, we will pack up our tents and gear and drive about an hour and a half back towards Los Angeles - to Zion National Park. We will then pitch our tents in Zion, where we will stay for the next two nights. We will have spent about two and a half days hiking Bryce, and we will then be spending the next two and a half days hiking Zion.
At Bryce, we will have used the shower stalls that are available to us there. Zion, however, has no shower stalls there. We will be bringing our own portable solar showers, which we can use while at Zion.
Our last night, though, we will be able to get to use modern indoor showers again, as we will be staying in a motel on our way home. We will have driven part of the way on our last evening, in order that we do not have that full drive to make on our last day. As we had two tents at our camp sites, with four campers and one counselor in each tent, such will be the case with two rooms at the motel.
At the motel, we may use the pool and swim. We may also watch some movies while relaxing from all the hiking we had been doing.
Also en route back, we may continue to do some mini-hiking at special spots along the way. We may do some special Geocaching treasure-hunt hiking.
Indeed this special week will be quite a Hikers’ Heaven!
We will be breathing pure, clean air and enjoying nature at its best.
