My wife had a Monday off, so on the spur of a moment we decided to head east to Boulder Town and see some amazing country. We did almost the same trip 5 1/2 years ago so we were familiar with the route. When we took this trip in the spring of 2011 it had been very windy for days and the visibility at the scenic overlooks was very poor.
The physical Grand Staircase starts at the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon and steps up through Zion, Bryce and ends at the Aquarius Plateau, which is topped off by Boulder Mountain.

Powell Point is just east of Bryce and at 10,188' it was visible most of the first day.

He doesn't compete anymore as the quickest cars ( 7.26s ) are faster ( 208mph )...
