Summer 2018 Update #7 – UT to AZ

So we are now leaving Utah and heading to northern Arizona.  Today was about 300 miles.  This took us through the through the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument and Glen Canyon National Recreation Area (Lake Powell).  Bryce Canyon National Park is at the very edge of this area.

Love the layers and hoodoos!

side note: do you know the difference between a National Park and a National Monument?

The difference has to do with the reason for its development.  Parks are for “inspirational, educational, and recreational values” while a Monument is for “historic, prehistoric, or scientific interest”.
