Bryce Canyon National Park was awesome - we "communed with the hoodoos" on a couple trail runs, took a bus tour, and camped in the chilly autumn-like high-elevation air. I've tried to cull down our multitude of photos but I still feel the need to break this into two parts.
So, here is part 1, from day 1.
Sunrise at Bryce Point (yeah, I can get up early when there is a compelling reason to):
Sneak attack in the Visitor's Center - and watch out for the fox!
Crazy rock formations, aka "hoodoos":
We ran on the Queen's Garden, Navajo, and Peekaboo trails - what a fun set of trails!
Lots of pretty colors:
This makes John sad:
A bit of canyoneering practice :)
Isn't this incredible?
More funky shapes:
Moon over the hoodoos:
Tall trees growing in deep canyons:
Continuing ahead, on the Peekaboo Trail now:
Wall of Windows:
John heading up the trail:
Love these amphitheaters:
Twinkle Toes! A favorite tree of the park rangers:
Stir fry! A favorite meal of Marcy and John :)
