When visiting Marysvale and the Paiute Trail this has always been our first choice of where we stay, Moore's Old Pine Inn. mooresoldpineinn.com We'd leave the travel trailer home and stay here, this is without a doubt our favorite vacation location.
The hotel was built in 1882 and has had such famous guest as Butch Cassidy (who was born 25 miles south in Circleville, Utah). Zane Gray wrote Riders of the Purple Sage during one of his extended stays here.
We took this trip July 2008. We left our truck and trailer at the Inn and rode to Bryce Canyon and stayed at Ruby's Inn for one night and then headed back to Marysvale the next day.
We took this 2-day ride with our best friends before the other couples arrived in Marysvale a day later than we did.
Just some cactus where we took our first break.
This part of Utah is made up of volcanic rock that erupted a long time ago. Utah has 8 volcanoes.
This rock looked like a fish with it's mouth open.
Red, green, and white rock all in the same place.
This was the last pic of the first day. I took this one riding on the Paunsaugunt Trail approaching Bryce Canyon.
The first day we traveled 111 miles from Marysvale to Ruby's Inn, it's a spectacular ride. I'll post pics from the ride back including a ride down Casto Canyon hopefully tomorrow, it's getting late.
Thanks for taking time to check them out.
