Today is going to be one of those days. The park is nearly an hour from base camp in the wrong direction. It's also one of the busiest parks in Utah. This is going to be a long day.
We hit up the crowded visitor center and pick out our hike. It's the most popular hike in the park and to top it off we are here on a Saturday. Oh what great timing we have. Queen's garden trail winds 2.8 miles through the heart of the hoodoos, the defining feature of the park. Grab your water and hiking sticks.
After the hike we spent the rest of the day driving to other viewpoints and taking in the sights. We even opted to head further away from home to see a small mossy cave and a tiny waterfall.
It's already late afternoon and time to head home. Another hour in the car will take us to Penny where Eli waits patiently. He's been couped up for about 9 hours and is excited to get out of the house. Our days seem to revolve around walking the dog and making sure he takes care of business. My, my, my, what an exciting life.
