I was not there during the winter, but my brother-in-law has some amazing pictures of Bryce Canyon dusted with a wintry snowfall. I can't decide which season is the most beautiful.
Hoodoo magic. These formations are breathtaking, particularly in the right light. They are mostly limestone and the pink hues are a result of high iron content.
Here you can see harder layers protecting the softer stone underneath. The result are 'hats' reminding me of a picture of Davy Crockett!
Queens Garden Trail takes you down - both on foot and on horseback. I wish I could do that once - but horses don´t like me, they bite and they are high when falling down :(
Here, you can see the horizontal layers that make up the stone face of Bryce Canyon. It´s soft sandstone that easily weathers away. Sometimes, hard layers on top will protect the stone underneath.
To see Bryce Canyon at its best you´ll have to be up before nine a.m.. The colours are most intense then, and the rocks are glowing.
Bryce Canyon is named for Ebenezer Bryce, a mormon settler, who ran his cattle below Sunset Point, called it 'a hell of a place to lose a cow.'
Hike - this place is best seen from deep within. Spring was a great time to go - no crowds, and the snow in the canyon made it even more beautiful!
Nature caprices are always an awesome site to behold, here is a picture of a natural arch bridge, between two pinnacles.
