After three days in Zion National Park we drove east to Moab. We deliberately took the scenic route through the Grand Escalante National Monument, which must be the most spectacular section of road I’ve ever drive. Hitting elevations of over 9500ft, we were amazed by the sights along the way. A national park we’re absolutely going to have to head back to, all we managed to stop and see was the Bryce Canyon amphitheatre…
