This is Fred Ball for Zions Bank, speaking on business.

I'm sometimes amazed when Utah people tell me they have never been to Utah's great national parks. A friend told me that she has been on every continent, visited all 50 states and over 40 foreign countries but has never been to Lake Powell, never visited Flaming Gorge or seen Zions or Bryce Canyon.

People come from all over the world to see Utah and yet some of us fail to take advantage of our own backyard. Bryce Canyon is one of the most coveted spots in America for Europeans. One thing they really enjoy is the B - Bar - D Covered Wagon Company at Ruby's Inn.

Brent and Alice Dansie and family will be your hosts for a truly outstanding western experience. Their program has been featured on the Today Show and recently Paul Harvey was onboard and devoted an entire segment of his show to his most enjoyable experience.

The company offers an experience that is never to be forgotten with a covered wagon ride through the forests of the beautiful and breathtaking Bryce Canyon. A mountain man guides the ride through real Indian country. The dining wagons lend themselves to warm, cozy conversation while enjoying the luscious cowboy grub served by the good chuckwagon cooks.

After you finish your meal, there is some Old West entertainment with singing and dancing with an abundance of old-fashioned foot stompin' hoedowns. As you return by covered wagon to Ruby's Inn, you will agree this has been an outstanding evening in the West.

Just a few weeks ago, the Oregon Broadcasting Company filmed a segment on the B-Bar-D Covered Wagon Company for a special National Parks employees documentary that will air sometime next year.

When Brent and Alice Dansie and their very talented family are not in Bryce Canyon, they have a winter ranch location in Herriman, Utah where the B-Bar-D Wranglers provide the same quality food and entertainment.

So, if you haven't experienced the beauties of Bryce, do yourself a favor. Head south!!

For Zions Bank, I’m Fred Ball. I'm speaking on business.
