Utah State Highway 12 is an "All American Road", I could not find the "Johnny Foreigner's Road so, was pleased that I was not prevented from cycling the All American Road!
So after some days of unfavorable conditions (weather: cold and headwinds) I have had two lots of good luck. The first was that today was a free entry day to Bryce Canyon National Park, and the second was that Jesse, a cyclist in his younger days, offered to share his campsite with me for free! Saving me $30 over the two days. Good fortune indeed: obviously the universe has regained equilibrium!
After pitching tent and some chat it was off to the aptly named Sunset Point for some photography.
