Queens Garden and Navajo Loop

Queens Garden and Navajo Loop

This is one the most popular/busy hikes in Bryce Canyon. While we didn't see any other kids on this hike, it can be done!

The hike begins at Sunrise Point off of the rim.

It's steep no matter what direction you start at, but it's totally worth it.

The scenery was out of this world cool.

This hike was surreal. I honestly can't get over how amazing it was. I was a little worried about taking two babies on this hike, but with my MIL by my side, we were fine.

Queens Garden is only .8 miles long (one way.) You can either go just to Queens Garden or continue on to Navajo Loop, which we did.

We found our first Hoodoo Medallion for the "Hike the Hoodoos" prize!

We started out around 7:30 as my children woke up early. It was a good thing too, because we were done way before the heat came.
Shortly after Queens Garden we decided to have a diaper break. The kids had done pretty well so far. In fact, they each slept a little after our break.

It was really hard not to take photos of everything.

I really feel the need to go back and do this hike all over again, this time take it a little slower. Well, even slower than we already took it.

Apparently, we were quite the spectacle. Tourists were pointing and staring...one guy even asked for our photo. I guess people don't often see two ladies hiking while wearing babies!

The last stretch was tough. After many breaks we made it.

Good thing too, because every turn brings something even more "beautahful" to look at!

I believe this is Thor's Hammer.

Luckily, the views made up for all the crazy switchbacks.

Finally made it back to the top!

Really, this hike needs to be on your "do before you die list!" Check out our original post, to get all the details.
