Total distance about 450 miles.
The drive was easier than the day before and spectacular views made it worth the effort of driving the extra 300 miles. We drove by the periphery of Bryce Canyon and Zion National Parks, drove past the vermilion cliffs, Grand Staircase-Escalante Monument, to reach the Grand Canyon.
Check out the pictures in the albums below to see how the color of the landscape changes from green/brown to brick red as we drove south/east.
We reached the lodge early enough to watch the sunset on the canyon and go to bed early for a good night's sleep before our longest drive (in miles) of the road trip, the next day.
Dinner: At Bright Angel Lodge, Grand Canyon (where we stayed)
