Bryce Canyon National Park

This year we have been to most of the National Parks in Utah, including Canyonlands, Arches, Capitol Reef, Kodachrome basin, Cedar Breaks, Zion, and Bryce.  Bryce is one of the more popular of the parks… but not necessary my favorite.

It’s like a concave bowl brush – now there’s a unique description!  It has spires (brush bristles) that jut up from the bowl floor.  It makes me wonder why the ‘rest’ of the landscape surrounding this area hasn’t also eroded away.  Fascinating country for sure.

Ironically at the Sunset Overlook, at sunrise (not sunset), the spires light up and take on a golden hue.  I think it’s a trick to keep the tourists down. :)

  1. Thanks for the pictures…keep them coming! I have been so Grand Canyon-centric that we haven’t spent much time exploring Utah. Hoping to change that. Safe travels…
