In around 4 weeks time we will be arriving at Bryce Canyon on our Las Vegas and the National Parks Tour. We will be spending a night a Ruby’s Inn and visit the Canyon – the park entrance is under a mile from the hotel. Bryce is 2336m above sea level so gets pretty cold in March but with the close proximity of the hotel we can go out for a sunrise then come back to warm up with a buffet breakfast.
This is another of my favourite hotels on the trip with great history. In 1916 Reuben C (Ruby) Syrett moved to the area and built a ranch near the present site of Ruby’s Inn. By 1919 they had obtained permission to build a ‘Tourist Rest’ near the canyon and when Bryce Canyon became a National Monument in 1923 the tourist rest was moved to its present location and named Ruby’s Inn.
