We get it, we can’t all be survivalist guru’s like Reese Witherspoon in “Wild.” And yeah, this might not be an intense 2,650 mile hike. But the Zion & Bryce Overnight Walking tour still proves to all your friends that you’re outdoorsy enough to survive two days and one night with Mother Nature – bugs and dirt included at no extra charge. After being picked up from your hotel, you’ll be faced with your first wilderness challenge: sitting in an air-conditioned bus for a few hours.
Once that’s out of the way, step out to the natural beauty of Bryce Canyon. The amphitheater formations, also called the Paunsaugunt Plateau, are where you fill up your camera roll with breathtaking views. The canyon also hosts geological formations called hoodoos, sounds like voodoo but with an “H.” After a day of exploration and a few selfies, you’ll be faced with your second wilderness challenge, choosing between staying in a 3-star hotel (at an additional cost) or cuddling up with Mother Nature.
Day two, you’ll be traveling to Zion National Park where the scenery is completely different. Here, you’ll be whisked away into the green thicket of forests. You’ll have half a day to hike around the park, so challenge yourself by conquering Angel’s Landing or take a light walk through the Emerald Pools and take time for a photo op.
Now that you’ve proven your worth, back to a society full of gadgets and indoor plumbing. Congratulations, you survived the wilderness and have selfies to prove it. But now that you received your first wilderness patch, your friends are going to expect that 2,650 mile hike next time.
