Slot Canyon Inn
We spent a couple of nights at this most wonderful bed and breakfast!
We arrived at dusk - it would have been a little hard to find in the dark, although her directions are really good. It is in a remote location. Just off Highway 12 out of Escalante, Joette Marie Rex, the owner of this beautiful place, told us she had to drive 2 1/2 hours to Cedar City to take her cell phone to be worked on!
It is 40 minutes from Bryce and the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument is in their back yard. If you ever go visit these places, you have got to stay here! We had a marvelous time!
Here was our room. LOVED it!
We arrived around 7:30 in the evening. Joetta's son and daughter-in-law have a restaurant there (North Creek Grill) and that is where we had our dinner. Al had steak on a lava rock and I had chicken/mozarella with quinoa. I wanted to order a slice of birthday cake for Al, but he didn't want to be made a fuss over, and we were pretty full from the dinner. Soooo good!
Here is Allen, looking at the illustrated edition of "Indescribable" by Louie Giglio and Matt Redman (part of his birthday gift) the next morning on our deck.
Here is looking down at the restaurant from the deck in the morning.
Do you see the pharmacy mascot, Lortab, on the girl's shoulder? She got such a kick out of him.
What was funny was that the couple from Scotland were traveling with a "friend" as well - Bertie Bassett. They got him at a fundraiser. They told us that in England, Bertie is a mascot for the Bassett's brand of licorice. He is a man made oftric licorice, his bodyparts all sorts of various colors. Bertie is a jovial, smiling character,somewhat similar to the Pillsbury Dough Boy. Their Bertie was a crochetted one. Here he is in a papoose with Lortab (he is hard to see, but he's under Bertie's arm) along with Joetta.
This is a look at the inn from up a hill behind it.
There are some petroglyphs and pictographs on the rock canyon just behind the inn. A university has done some archeological digging there and plan to continue to do so later in the future. They think this sign means that the (Escalante) river never runs dry.
Slot Canyon adventures next!
