Bryce day 2, Zion national park

I have been in need of a day off.  Today I gave myself an afternoon off.  After popping back to Bryce to finish up what I had not seen yesterday, I drove the short distance to Zion.  The journey was cool, the remainer of scenic route 12 through Red Canyon.

Upon arrival at Zion I drove to the far side and found a (grossly overpriced) campsite.  It has a pool and so I enjoyed chilling in the sun.

This morning I went on a brief nature walk and saw a cave full of ice, and a waterfall.  The water through the canyon was not natural, in that the Mormons redirected another river to flow through this valley to feed their new settlement (hey, why not settle where there's water, eh?).

I'm now catching up on overdue emails, having fought with the stupid grannie running the wifi to get connected.  Dumb ass.

 The management here are so tight.  The showers are token-operated and last just 8 minutes.  I wonder how many sheets of toilet paper I'll be allowed to use.
