This trip to Bryce and Zion was everything I could have imagined. Beautiful rocks, interesting people, great hikes. Gary told stories of canyoneering trips into some of the slot canyons.

This program is a great introduction to Zion and Bryce and Utah I had never to any of these before and now I feel as if I have truly been there and experience the essence of what each has to offer. This is a great way to go.

Appreciated starting out the week with hikes that were not too long in order to adjust to elevations. The 8 mile round trip hike in Zion was challenging but very doable. The scenery was absolutely stunning. Bryce Canyon hikes were exceptionally beautiful. See a movie about Bryce at the Visitor's Center was a fantastic way to prepare myself for what I was about to see. The geology talks were so helpful to understand the forces of nature. I highly recommend this trip!

Marcia from Gilbert, AZ What a trip!!! The beauty of Zion and Bryce is daunting. My mouth hung open for most of the hikes taking in all the spectacular views. The guides were so much fun, they added much to an already awesome trip. Thank you for all that you did.

Wonderful program! Sherry, Gary, and Paul made the trip even better. I sweated, but I enjoyed every minute of it.

We just loved this trip !! Good coordinators, good guides, good bus driver, and good food . Learned a lot about the Mormon town of St George which was fascinating as well as all the geology at the different places. Was strenuous, but they made allowances for all skill levels.

Joyce and I participated in the March 31st to April 6, 2014 hike in Zion and Bryce. It was lead by Darrell and Paula McMahon with Fred as our driver. This team provided us with a great trip to a beautiful area of our country. Darrell did an excellent job explaining what we were looking at, while Paula kept us on schedule with Fred getting us there and back safely. This was our first Road Scholar trip, and hopefully the first of many.

Number of programs attended: 9 Jane and Denis from Delaware Date attended: 9/9/13 - 9/15/13 Darrell and Paula McMahon were a great team in taking care of us. In addition, Darrell was probably the most knowledgeable guide in our 9 trips. We liked having our days packed with hiking and educational activities over having more down time. Meals and accommodations were above the norm for Road Scholar. Hope to take another Dixie State University hike with Darrell and Paula in the future.

Great well organized and lead tour! Darrell and Paula McMahon are outstanding, their warmth and caring make all attendees feel comfortable! Great information (geology, biology, etc.) and humor. Would recommend this tour, these tour leaders, etc. Plan another trip to Utah (Bryce - cross country skiing and snow shoeing) with Darrell and Paula.
