Web Notice:

Join us in a winter adventure in two of our country's best national
parks. Our visit will coincide with low levels of tourist, moderate
temperatures and wide range of possible activities. Depending upon trail
conditions we plan on doing cross country skiing and snowshoeing in
Bryce Canyon NP and hiking in Zion NP. Zion National Park encompasses
some of the most scenic canyon country in the United States. Within its
229 square miles are high plateaus, a maze of narrow, deep, sandstone
canyons, and the Virgin River and its tributaries. Zion also has
2,000-foot Navajo Sandstone cliffs, pine- and juniper-clad slopes, and
seeps, springs, and waterfalls supporting lush and colorful hanging
gardens. Follow the paths where ancient native people and pioneers
walked. Gaze up at massive sandstone cliffs of cream, pink, and red that
soar into a brilliant blue sky. Experience wilderness in a narrow slot
canyon. Zion's unique array of plants and animals will enchant you as
you absorb the rich history of the past and enjoy the excitement of
present day adventures. There is no place like Bryce Canyon. Hoodoos
(odd-shaped pillars of rock left standing from the forces of erosion)
can be found on every continent, but here is the largest collection of
hoodoos in the world! The park's road leads past the expansive Bryce
Amphitheater, a hoodoo-filled depression lying below the Rim Trail
hiking path. It has overlooks at Sunrise Point, Sunset Point,
Inspiration Point and Bryce Point. The hoodoos are especially
breathtaking when covered with a dusting of snow and sparkling in the
sun!! Come and experience it with us! We will fly in/out of Las Vegas
where our 7 passenger vans will be waiting for us at the airport. Then
we will drive to Bryce Canyon and stay in 3 star local hotels just
outside of each park in double occupancy rooms and have breakfast
included each morning. We will drive into the parks each day to enjoy
their many splendors. Depending upon trail conditions we will either
ski, snowshoe or hike amongst the fantastic scenery in uncrowded
conditions! Cost of $1342 (plus estimated airfare of $550-600) includes
vans to/from Las Vegas, hotel, breakfast, most dinners.
