On our second day in Kanab, we actually drove an hour southeast to Page, Arizona. My body clock was way off because of daylight savings – Arizona doesn’t participate so instead of having the same timezone as Utah, it actually stayed an hour behind. So driving through the state lines made it really confusing for me and my phone.
We initially drove into Page to have lunch at Big John’s Texas BBQ. However, after finding out that it was only fifteen minutes away from Horseshoe Bend, I convinced my parents to check out the latter first before eating. My parents were more than happy to stop by while my brothers were a whole different story. When we got there, only mom and I did the quick hike to see Horseshoe Bend AND IT DID NOT DISAPPOINT!
Nature is absolutely beautiful, y’all. Remember when I went to see the Grand Canyon the first time and had tears in my eyes? The same thing happened here. It was such an extraordinary and oh wow. How is this place even real?!
After seeing the Horseshoe Bend, we had a scrumptious lunch at Big John’s and it did not disappoint either. Their coleslaw and potato salad were amazing. Also, their ribs were out of this world!!
On our drive back to Kanab, we pulled over the side of the road to check out the Toadstool Hoodoos. My dad had seen sign for it and wanted to check it out! Toadstool Hoodoo is part of the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. Unfortunately, by the time we arrived, the sun was setting and it was looking rather gloomy; we grabbed some photos and decided to hike to the hoodoos another time.
The four days we spent at Kanab were too short! Hopefully there’s a next time. Before you go, check out the video I made!
