One last glimpse of Colorado, the valley around Mesa Verde....
Christine is planning our stay near Bryce Canyon, and reading up on hiking maps that we've downloaded.
(a huge road transport takes up the whole road)
entering Red Canyon
We stick to our habit of arriving just by sunset...!
the sun is setting on the rugged landcape
panorama video (1039 kB movie file)
The day ends, and we seek shelter for the night.
passing by the smallish airport on our way in the next day
Our 6 mile loop through Bryce Canyon starts by Sunset Point, at 8000' (2400m)
It descends right into the canyon's unreal landscape.
lots of switchbacks
...but this way is temporarily closed.
natural rock bridges
getting that perfect shot
more of those dirty little feet
back up again
An extraordinary place!
