In Bryce Canyon National Park

Bryce Canyon is feast for the eyes. The rim sits between 2400 and 2700 meters. No wonder why we had such a cold night at -5°. The densely hoodoo-covered amphitheater is a maze. Walking in it offers an ever changing perspective of the gradient colored spires. South of the park the Yovimpa overlook let us admire one of the longest views in the US. We could see the Grand Staircase and as far as Page in Arizona (where we visited Antelope canyon) and the North rim of the Grand Canyon. About the Grand Staircase: it’s the world’s most complete sequence of sedimentary rocks. From the bottom of the Grand Canyon, through Zion, to the top of Bryce, the rock records a history of 525 million years, and we can see it from here. The succession of canyons look like colored stairs.
