Last week I took a break from Zion’s canyons and went to visit our National Park neighbor, Bryce Canyon. It’s about 2 hours away from Zion and not a very large park…perfect for a day trip. Bryce tends to be fairly cooler due to its higher elevation so it was also a nice escape from the heat Zion was enjoying at that time. It was recommended to me to take the Fairy Land Loop, an 8 mile loop that dips into some very cool features of the park. So I did just that. This loop was amazing and had some of the coolest landscapes I’ve seen. It truely was like stepping into another world. Huge hoodoos were all over the place with a sort of cemented, eroded sediment that looked like blended water colors below them. If you get a chance you should definitely check it out. However, because the park is so small (you can see everything in one, maybe two days), make sure you have some other places to go like, oh I don’t know, Zion! Here are a few select pictures from the trip. As always, the rest of the pictures are available on the flickr stream and I have now made links to each set on the right pannel of this blog.
I also just got back from Great Basin National Park yesterday and I will have a short write up about that soon!
