Final Stop, Bryce Canyon

I finally made it to my fourth and final destination on my trip to southern Utah—Bryce Canyon. This visit was a little different than the others because Bryce Canyon sits at a higher elevation than the other parks I visited which means it's still winter here. There was a lot of snow and most of the park is still closed. Nevertheless, I visited all of the viewpoints that were open and put on my crampons to hike into and out of the canyon itself. The trek into the canyon was a little challenging because of the winter condition, but no more treacherous than anything else I've done this week. The canyon itself is amazing! It is filled with red rocks that have been formed into a rock formation called hoodoos. They are steeple-like pillars that rise high into the air to create some stunning natural beauty. I did my best to take photos, but the sun was so bright that couldn't hardly see the screen of my phone.

I'm in Salina, UT tonight. Tomorrow, I'm stopping in Loveland, CO to visit some friends. I'll finally arrive home on Monday.

Thank you for following along! It's been a really wonderful trip. I'll share one more post later with some final thoughts and photos.
