We hopped out at one stop to hike up part of a cliff for a lovely view of the canyons surrounding us. By the time we took pics and hopped back on the shuttle, it was dark. We blindly made it to our car in the dark parking lot, looking up at the bright stars for our first breathtaking view of the clear night sky.
I was the one who drove all day, and we still had another 1.5 hours until we reached our hotel in Kanab, Utah. I do not recommend driving through the park at night, as the way is steep through razorback roads. It was a stressful drive, and we were really relieved to reach the end of the park. We stopped off at a Thunderbird motel on the east side of the park for dinner and then finally headed the final stretch to Kanab for a good night's rest.
