Bryce


Bryce Canyon - easily one of the most beautiful places we've visited.

 From Zion, we traveled northwestward and drove on past Bryce, opting to stay at Kodachrome State Park.  Kodachrome is aptly named.  Although its colorful cliffs and hoodoos don't match Bryce, the smallish basin is an awesome camping location.

 We only stayed one night at Kodachrome, but arriving early in the day we were able to spend most of the day driving to the overlooks in Bryce.
 Every stop simply overwhelms the senses. Like the Grand Canyon the scale of the place cannot be depicted in a photo.

 Below is a feature called the alligator.




Along one of the roads to an overlook we spotted a prairie dog community.  One of the citizens seemed to be willing to pose for a photo. As usual I've uploaded more photos on the Flickr site.

After a peaceful night's rest we traveled a longer than normal jaunt of some270 miles through southern Utah past  Capital Reef National Park, the subject of the next post.
