Our Bryce Canyon trip, Utah
Reviews > North America > United States > Bryce Canyon > Our Bryce Canyon trip
We left early to one of the US's most incredible places, Bryce Canyon, which is also one of my personal favorites. For some reason most people have never heard about Bryce, maybe because it's only beautiful and has no records of its own. I have no idea, but I can tell you, if you ever go to this area, you better check out good old Bryce.
The drive there takes you through the desert and there is not much you can see along the road except the plains and some canyons. However, about mid way, you'll have a real nice windy road through this one Canyon, I wish I knew what it's called. It's not a place to really stop and take pictures, but driving through it is really cool.
I was surprised that there was still plenty of snow on the mountain tops as we were closing in on Bryce. We stopped at a beautiful creek for lunch and spent just about half an hour admiring nature. When we finally got to Bryce we were really happy to do some nice walking. There was a lot of wind and there were times when you thought that you'd be blown off one of the many cliffs, which was actually a little scary to me. The experience was nevertheless breathtaking to say the least, the view is incredible, and you can only wonder how wind and water can create such an awesome sight.
Do take the time to check out the pics of this one, it's really anazing.
