Bryce Canyon, Utah: After a snowfall
I was looking through my archives for some lighthouse photos for you know who but my archives are everywhere. I have multi-hard drives and dozens of DVD's so it was a project that I didn't wish to tackle tonight. Instead I will show you some images that I came across when we were in Utah a few years ago and we stopped at Bryce Canyon
We left Mesa Verde in Colorado but we were caught in a few snow storms and had to take cover in Monticello for the night. The next day we headed west on Hwy 95 through Hanksville, the Escalante and nearly turned around because there were no other cars along this stretch and the snow was getting much worse. But we made it.
When we got to the entrance, the Ranger told us that because of the fresh snow they had some avalanches and half of the rim road was closed. They also closed all of the trails because they were tired of having to rescue all the stupid tourists.
Even so, there was no discount, we had to pay full price to enter the Park but we were rewarded by having the whole place to ourselves. Lucky thing we brought our hiking poles as the snow was very slippery
Whenever we travel somewhere I always try to bring back a family portrait
