Bryce Canyon was a tough group of photos to cut down and sort through!
With so much color and texture, you spend a lot time comparing photos side-by-side to determine which is crisper, more detailed, or paints the image a bit better than the other.
Bryce isn’t really a canyon, but a collection of large natural amphitheaters.
The hoodoos in Bryce are the largest collection in the world, and it’s easy to believe it when looking at the photos.
We dry-camped with electricity just behind the Ruby’s Inn hotel right at the park entrance, they put in a few gravel pads to catch some dollars from the crowd that brings their own bed with them and wants to be close to the park.
With crazy low temperatures and snow, we ran our small electric space heater nonstop and certainly got our money’s worth out of the camping spot.
On our last day, we lucked out as some small pockets of blue sky appeared out the Pod window, so we quickly hopped in the car and drove to Bryce Amphitheater for some great snow and rock shots.
From here, it’s on to Kodachrome Basin State Park to see more colors and crazy natural features.
