The kids wanted a shorter hike than originally planned, so I told them that if they woke up early, we'd go to Bryce in the morning, then they could sit around the cabin all afternoon. We did part of Navajo Loop last year, and they loved it, so I decided to tack on a little more this time.

We headed down the Thor's Hammer, Two Bridges side of Navajo Loop, did Peek-A-Boo Loop clockwise, then headed back up the Wall Street side of Navajo Loop. Heading down had a handful of people. Peek A Boo had some people, but not a ton. And going up Wall Street was a complete mob scene, as expected.

Saw one Great Basin Rattler on Peek A Boo. He was sleeping next to some benches under an overhang. I warned some hikers walking by at that moment, and they were appalled that there wasn't a sign there warning them of the snake. I said "Well, he moves around, so they'd have to keep moving the sign..." then decided that there was no point in discussing it further. My son also managed to get bit on the finger by a chipmunk (no broken skin). He said it was the best day of his life.

Very warm on the hike up, but the kids handled it better than at least 95% of the other hikers out there. We saw one person who didn't quite make it to the top, and there were park service employees tending to her. Perfect timing for our finish at noon, there was a good sized storm building, and it let loose about 10 minutes after we finished.
