Spent the day at Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah. Another geologic jewel, arguably the finest. For the first three hours I drove the scenic route throughout the park and stopped at about 18 observation points; each one trying to outdo the others in terms of the view. At all view points, you see the venerable hoodoos - limestone rock formations of all shapes, sizes, colours and contortions. Wonderful views, especially from Bryce and Inspiration Points. Saw Thor's hammer, the Queens Garden, the Wall of Windows ands many many more. There was even a natural arch in the mix. Following the drive, off on a short hike to Mossy Cave trail. My type of trail, short but picturesque, with hoodoos of course all along the route. A cute little waterfall at trails end. Tomorrow I tackle the Queens Garden/Navajo trail and will venture down amongst the hoodoos, following this three mile trail through the amphitheatre. Come on back!
