Red Canyon | 12 Utah Staycations

I’ve been by Red Canyon quite a few times before but have never stopped. This time, I made sure it was on the itinerary. 

After swimming at the hotel and eating some dinner at the Cowboy Buffet and Steak House we decided to do a quick trip to Red Canyon and go exploring. Red Canyon Visitor Center has very limited hours, so we weren’t able to go inside, but we did explore. 

It was SO much fun. We followed some trails and then climbed some big boulders. 

While Bryce Canyon National Park is magical in its own right, Red Canyon was even more so, because you have a little bit more freedom to
explore. 

We let the kids climb up to the base of the hoodoos and ledges and slide down the rocky hills. 

From our vantage point, we were able to see this AMAZING trail that goes high above the valley. (I think it's called Birdseye)

I’m adding this to our bucket list again. We were there right at sunset so the lighting was beautiful. 

On our drive back we watched the ALMOST Full moon come right over the rock tunnels. It was the perfect way to end the night.
