Our non-stop tour continued with visits to Dead Horse Point and Capitol Reef National Park, shown below. At Dead Horse Point we saw a huge film crew, probably about 200 people but unfortunately we could not find out what film it was, or if anyone famous was there.

The next stop was Bryce Canyon National Park, which was amazing. I know I've been saying that a lot recently, but there are lots of stunning places in USA! We stopped off here in the afternoon, when we had the chance to walk down into the canyon, and again the following morning to see sunrise. The stacks of rock are known as Hoodoos, and like most things in the USA, are huge! The last two photos below were taken whilst walking in the canyon.

The following day we visited the final National Park on our trip - Zion National Park. Although it was only a brief stop, we managed one of the most exciting hikes in the park, climbing right up one of the mountains to Angel's Landing. The trail is not for the faint hearted, its not very wide and with sheer drops on both sides (as you can see on the second photo below). It was well worth the climb, although the day we visited turned out to be a bank holiday in the USA, so the trail was packed with people!
