Well, we HAD to stop at Bryce Canyon - surely the most unusual place on earth.
We were there on a cloudy afternoon, but luckily you can't really take a bad picture at Bryce. This is the view from Sunset Point.
But we wanted to go down among the hoodoos.
We took off down Navajo trail - lots of switchbacks lead to this much photographed tree.
Then we made a loop with the Queens Garden trail. Somebody got a little crazy with the trail markers.
Along the way, I found the spot where I took this very same picture about 15 years ago when I was here the first time with Diana. I don't think the little tree has grown at all.
And yes, it was cold up there at 8000 feet.
I call this 'Holding on by your toes.'
Luckily when we stopped at Bryce Point, the sun did peek out between the clouds for a minute.
Really, is there any other country that has the range of scenery found right here in the USA?
