We slept last night in ‘Harvey the RV’ at 8,000 plus feet and it got a little cool but despite that we slept pretty well. Bryce National Park has many overlooks above 8,000 feet and some just shy of 10,000 feet. The views from those overlooks are some of the most incredible I’ve ever seen.
Bryce is famous for its’ Hoodoos which are spires of brilliant colored limestone that resemble a forest of candy canes with red, pink, orange, yellow, gray and white stripes. If you hike through them when the sun is hitting them just right they seem to glow. My little camera couldn’t capture the full spectrum of the colors we saw but the truth is I couldn’t come close to capturing the dynamic colors of Bryces’ rock formations no matter what camera I had.
From the overlooks the rock formations are beautiful but hiking down to the base of the hoodoos and under the arches is a surreal experience well worth the effort. It’s especially nice to be here at the end of the season when the volume of visitors and daytime temperatures are lower. The daytime temperatures now are in the 60’s and 70’s and great for hiking. I hope you enjoy the photos.
