After we said goodbye, we gathered up Lieza and Kamar and started heading toward Bryce. Linda had sandwiches for us, but Lieza and Kamar felt like stopping at a restaurant. Around lunch time we got to a town called Salina. The road signs announced the usual chains like Subway, etc. but Lieza spotted a sign for a place called Mom’s Café and suggested going there. Way to go Sis! It was a real cool place that has been around longer than me (at least in the 1940’s) and half the town seemed to go there for lunch. It was intriguing enough that I decided to have coffee and ice cream (Yum).

We got to Bryce in the mid afternoon, shortly after finishing the audio book “A Walk in the Woods”. We checked into the hotel and went for our initial exploration of the park. Once again it was spectacular and completely different from the places that we have been. We stopped at several of the overlooks, took pictures and contemplated where we would start our hike for tomorrow.
