After visiting Bryce Canyon for the first time a few weeks ago, I could hardly wait to come back.

I'm so thankful for friends like Natalie and Shelby who say yes to even my most unplanned, most unorganized, and most last minute road trips. Even with less than a week's notice, they were still willing to come along on my crazy idea of going to two different state parks in less than 48 hours.

We drove out and caught the sunset at Bryce Canyon, Prius-camped in a church parking lot, and woke up early to see sunrise at the Coral Pink Sand Dunes. We nearly froze in the car, Natalie got her Twitter hacked and forgot her backpack in a restaurant, and we scraped up our fingers trying to open our ciders without a bottle opener but it's one of the best and funniest trips I've ever had. Looking forward to many more trips with these two.
