Bryce Canyon National Park

I’ve just returned from a wonderful trip out west.  Our primary goal was to see The Mighty Five National Parks of Utah.  We met that goal and more. As a tribute to this year’s 100th Anniversary of the National Park Service, I will show you images from each of the Mighty Five, plus a bonus park, but they will come one blog post at a time.

Our first park stop was Bryce Canyon National Park, where we stayed in a room in the lodge on park property. At check-in, I was told that we had a second floor room with no elevators, and I groaned.  She said, “You have a really great room. All you have to do is walk outside and after a short hike you will be at the rim.”  I didn’t know what to expect, but she was right. It was a really great room. We had a balcony that looked out toward the rim and we could see people walking on the path. We left the building and started up a slight incline through the trees. Near the end of the trail, we could see two guys standing on the edge, one with a camera.

What we saw next took our breath away.  There was the canyon, practically at our back door.

Everywhere we looked there were spectacular sights. This was late afternoon, and as we walked on the rim, the clouds got heavier and darker.  We never had rain, but in the distance it was apparent someone was getting it. Day Two at Bryce will include sunrise photos and once again some late afternoon shots.  Stay tuned.
