Bryce Canyon NP - part 1

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!


Selfie practice:


Lots of pretty colors:


This makes John sad:


A bit of canyoneering practice :)


ET?


Isn't this incredible?


More funky shapes:



Moon over the hoodoos:


Tall trees growing in deep canyons:


Scary...


Thor's Hammer:


Continuing ahead, on the Peekaboo Trail now:




Hi John!


Wall of Windows:

Love these amphitheaters:


Twinkle Toes! A favorite tree of the park rangers:


Stir fry! A favorite meal of Marcy and John :)
