My family and I have been staying in Panguich and are loving it. We will be in the area for another two weeks and we have family visiting us on Monday. Panguich is in the middle of Bryce and Zion National Parks.
So far, we went to Agate hill and went rock hounding. We found so many different types of agates and my family had a blast that day. We also went hiking down a creek to slot canyons. Remember to bring a ton of water, it is gorgeous but very hot. We have been having a blast and if you ever get the chance to come into this area, do so.
