At the end of the month, I'll be making my way out west to Nevada and Utah. After running the Hoover Dam Half Marathon, we'll drive to Kanab, Utah where we'll be staying for the week. We'll be spending three days volunteering at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. Inter-mixed will be days hiking at Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon.
I've never been to the area (well, according to my parents I was when I was 6 months old but I don't remember much of that trip). While we have the trip pretty much planned out, I'd love any insight from others familiar with the area of anything we shouldn't miss. If it isn't obvious, I'm a fan of jam-packing vacations with as much as possible!
This trip has been in the works for a long time and it's exciting that it's almost here! I actually signed up for the Hoover Dam half before deciding on the marathon - yeah, a long time. Luckily I talked my sister out of running a full marathon the first day of our vacation but I'm pretty sure that is what planted the seed in my mind to tackle a marathon this year.
We tried to get permits to hike to The Wave but neither of our applications were chosen in the lottery. :-(
