HIKING REPORT: Bryce Canyon National Park

Well Utah continues to amaze!  Just when you think it couldn't get any better - it does! While you spend your time looking up to the magnificent peaks in Zion National Park, you can actually spend your time looking down in Bryce Canyon National Park - or hiking down into the canyon floor and back up to the rim.


Bryce Canyon is not really a canyon but a collection of huge amphitheaters overlooking giant hoodoos that were formed by frost weathering and stream erosion. The red, orange and white colors of the rocks provide spectacular vistas.



We were fortunate enough to share these hikes and views with our new found California friends Bill and Deborah.



I'll let the photos speak for themselves.  Hope you enjoy the show.

                 
               
              

                               
Our new hiking buddies - Deborah & Bill Brown, lots of fun.
Solving the worlds problems

                           
If you look close you can see some of the hiking trails
A different landscape when you hike back up from the valley floor
Not nearly enough time spent in Bryce - will definitely return.
