One of a few nice shots I got today during my first ever visit to Bryce Canyon National Park. Weather is turning cold and windy but we had some clearish skies for our figure 8 loop down through the amphitheatre.
We are camping here and enjoying our first campfire of the trip. Seems like the winds have been too high or we’ve been in no-burn zones most of the time.
Bryce is beautiful beyond description but I must say I like the parks and monuments with more back country and fewer tour busses a bit more.
Julie and I ventured off on our own and did a secluded slot canyon off Hole-in-the-rock road. Not terribly technically challenging but super narrow. Plus the hike in was fun with beautiful slick rock and iron balls.
Yesterday we hired a guide for some training and exploration of the magnificent slot canyons of the Grand Staircase – Escalante National Monument. We hiked the Round Valley Draw yesterday and will explore some more on our own today.
