Land's End, Cornwall, England, UK, United Kingdom

Land’s End

Land’s End is mainland Britain’s most south-westerly point. It’s not too far from St. Michael’s Mount, about a half hour drive. It’s surprisingly stuffed with tourists & tour buses but still a neat visit when you get past the shops and off the beaten path.

Devil's Bridge

Devil’s Bridge

We took a spur of the moment mini road-trip to Sedona over the weekend for a bit of hiking and relaxation. Our first hike was short, about 3.4 miles, to Devil’s Bridge. This is a popular hike and parking is nearly always full during the weekend. This would have been a shorter hike for us if we hadn’t had to park so far away. The trailhead is actually .7 miles away from the bridge & should have been a 1.4 mile round trip hike.

Navajo Loop & Queen’s Garden in Bryce Canyon National Park

Part 4 of our Bryce Canyon Road Trip (View Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 5, Part 6)

There are a couple places in the Southwest that we’ve visited that have made us say “Holy moly, is this place for real?” Like Antelope Canyon, the Grand Canyon, the Chiricahuas, Monument Valley, Sedona, Zion… now we can add Bryce Canyon National Park to that list!

Arch Tunnel, Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah, UT
Scenic byway to get into the park.

For our time spent in this surreal park, we chose to hike 2 trails, the Navajo Loop & Queen’s Garden. These 2 trails, from what we read, are considered the best way to see Bryce Canyon as it takes you up close to the national park’s significant view points. We ended up missing the trailhead because we ventured onto the Rim Trail and hiked a mile into it before realizing what we were doing and had to back track… so we had a warm up hike before our real hike. Here are views from our warm up hike:

Finger Rock Trail #42

We’ve always been told that Finger Rock is one of Tucson’s top strenuous trails. We finally hiked it today… and we’re not really sure about what we were told. Reviews online said this trail takes 4-6 hours but we finished it in 3 with breaks & exploring another trail. This brings me to the conclusion that those Oreo cookies we had last night gave us super powers!

Just kidding. Just kidding (tummy ache is more like it)
