Bryce Canyon – 2016-06-14

Marilyn’s photos of Bryce Canyon…

Bryce Canyon

We visited Bryce Canyon on Thursday.

The forest service started a controlled burn on Wednesday, the day that we arrived. Bryce Canyon City was smoky when we arrived, though the smoke dissipated some during the late afternoon and early evening. But when we woke up the next morning, the smoke was much worse than the evening before. Visibility was poor. Fortunately, visibility was better at Bryce Canyon, only a few miles away.

This first shot (and perhaps a few others) show the smoke from that (controlled) forest fire.

When we got back to Sunset Point, I hiked down the other branch of Navajo Loop.

There are many switchbacks on these canyon trails.

This is a view of the canyon from the trail that connects Bryce Point to the Peekaboo Loop Trail. A family was making their way down the trail at the same time that I hiked down. I asked them to pause just beyond a hole cut into the rock for this photo.

20150604-_DSC6393-Edit-mediumThis is a view up that connector trail (to the right) and down a portion of Peekaboo Loop Trail. I hiked back up at this point as Marilyn and Marie were waiting for me at the top.
