We spent 4 days in early October at Bryce Canyon – which could easily be seen in a day, but we found plenty of hikes to keep us busy for several days.  I am updating the blog late, so we have the benefit of having already seen Zion and the Grand Canyon at the time I write this, and would say we loved Bryce the best.  (Sorry GC.)  Bryce is the smallest of the 3 but the least trafficked and the most colorful.  Maybe it’s just the time of year that made the rock formations and the sky so beautifully contrasted.  We hiked every path and felt the most intimate with Bryce Canyon.  There is nothing else around, and the pictures speak for themselves.  Please pay no attention to the shot of my extremely wide hips, but do notice how tall and sharply steep the rocks are when you look up from below – incredible.  If you’d like to hear more about Bryce because you’d like to travel there, we’d be happy to share what we learned with anyone following this blog (I think there are five of you.)

We passed Red Canyon on the way to Bryce from McCall and decided not to ignore this lovely area simply because it was not the main attraction.  We drove out in Bonnie with our hiking poles, which it turned out we needed on a creepily narrow path along sheer drop offs.  I did not allow Johan to take any pictures of me in my most anxious moments (read: furious he took me on this death hike), but there are a few nice shots of Red Canyon (which I will never return to since this hike was rated “Moderate” – whatever, AllTrails.)
