Mike had reasoned that after driving all the way to Zion he should include some other Utah destinations in his itinerary. So he left Zion, drove through its famous tunnel and headed towards Panguitch for some groceries on his way to Bryce Canyon National Park.
This part of Zion, from the tunnel to the park boundary, is quite scenic. Not that many turnouts, though, alas.
Zion itself was nice enough, especially minus the crowds. But Mike probably won't be needing to go back there anytime soon.
Next week: the road to Bryce.
