Rather than bore you all over again with the details....Bryce is so unique, the photos tell the story themselves. Oh, these spires are called Hoo-Doos. For all of you geology buffs...we've put the explanation of their formation at the very bottom.
|This is the highest viewpoint in the park. We were gasping for air!|
Early one day, I took off on the Queen's Gate hike down to the bottom of the valley to be among the Hoo-Doos. These are from the bottom looking up.
|So many contrails daily shooting across the sky. I remember so well looking out the window wondering, "What's down there?" ...and now we're "there". What a hoot.|
|Taken with my HTC 8X Windows phone.|
One of our days, we went on this Mossy Cave hike....somewhat easy...about 200 feet elevation gain but there was a great waterfall at the end.
|While Kim took a breather, I climbed up and above the waterfall and posed for her.|
|In the 1890s, the settlers dug this channel to get water out of the mountains down to Tropic valley where they had crops. 14 miles long! Took them 2 years.|
|Kim's Sherpa getting water to put on our face and arms for cooling.|
|Shhhhhh.....The Master Photographer caught in action!|
|The view from underneath the waterfall.|
Bryce is unlike any other place you've visited. It should be on your Must-See list.
