They say no good plan goes unchanged. Well sure enough a little more due diligence on my part has ushered in some modifications to my trip already. The reasons behind these changes stem from doing additional research into my accommodations. It turns out two of my first choices weren't necessarily the greatest.
The first change will come in at Bryce Canyon where I will now be staying at the Best Western Ruby's Inn. The second change in plans will be for Capital Reef where I will now be staying at the Broken Spur Inn.
And because a few good changes deserve another, I have also decided to take a little time from Moab / Page and visit Grand Staircase Escalante. A million acres of possibilities await this single stop of my travels. Along those same lines I hope to be making a brief visit to The Maroon Bells between Aspen CO and Badlands National Park.
Now we'll just have to see how many of these places I actually make it to.
