    Totally Awesome, Bryce Canyon,

    June 20, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    Once again, I am at a loss for words to describe the sites that we have seen today. No superlatives, no camera lens can truly capture the unbelievable grandeur of these natural wonders.
    Bryce Canyon lies to the east of the Grand Canyon, and Zion National Park, and each one of these has a special look and geology that is distinctly different from the other. Bryce is no exception.
    Today started with us driving through Zion so we got to look at it from another angle. We then headed further East to Red Canyon and then to Bryce. Once again, we took advantage of the free shuttle from the visitor’s information centre.
    Our first stop was Inspiration point, the view was breathtaking as we looked at the many shapes of the formations created by eons of erosion. The colours are outstanding and against the perfect blue sky we could not have asked for better. Whilst there are fenced viewing platforms the various trails lead along the top of the ridge with nothing to catch you if you fall. Getting close to the edge is not for the faint hearted. In a land of litigation, we were amazed at how open the cliff faces were, you certainly need to be sure footed and have control of your kids.
    We walked from Inspiration Point to Sunset point and the vista change moment by moment. At the sunset point viewing area, we took the Navajo trail a steep winding well defined foot track in amongst the formations. What walked down the hill must come back up and muscles have been severely challenged on that walk back. I completed the Navajo loop, whilst Noela, Paola, and Carl took a longer route.
    There will be some aches and pains tomorrow.
    Lunch followed at the general store, and we then got back on the road via Antimony and Otter Creek along a road less travelled. A few old mines used for mining the precious metal Antimony dotted the area, and Otter Creek is a popular trout fishing location. Tthe road to, through and after these towns was better that our pacific or New England highways and yet it has almost no traffic. The roads here are brilliant.
    We have stopped in Salina Utah overnight before a big transit day getting up to Wyoming. We do not know what we will see tomorrow, but that is half the challenge.
    Walmart is certainly on the agenda for a camera as she killed hers today.
    Till tomorrow.

    The Americans are very clever to make the hamburgers. The hamburgers are from the city of Hamburg in Germany. The German people used to put one sausage in the 2 slices of bread. When the Americans have seen that, they have replaced the sausage by the beef steak.

    Ist das hier echt? Bryce Canyon

    April 16 in the United States ⋅ 🌧 3 °C

    Am Vortag angekommen, machen wir uns im Regen auf den Weg uns einen ersten Einblick zu verschaffen.

    Damit haben wir nicht gerechnet, am Bryce Piont (Aussichtspunkt) angekommen klärt der Himmel auf undeutlich bekommen den ersten Blick auf die beeindruckende Kulisse.

    Diese Formationen, die Farben und diese Dimensionen.
    Gespannt auf den nächsten Tag, an dem wir diesen Tal bewandern werden.

    Nach einer wirklich sehr kalten Nacht! Gehts vom Sunrise Piont quer durch das Tal und wieder zurück.

    Es ist einfach nur unglaublich schön hier zu laufen.
    Die erste Wanderung in diesem Urlaub. (13km)

    Der Tag fing beschissen an, wurde dann aber noch sensationell. Die olle Autovermietung hat mir den bestellten Pickup nicht gegeben und so mussten wir, mit einer Stunde Verspätung, uns mit einem Jeep Patriot zufrieden geben...
    Dieser brachte uns dann aber nach vier Stunden an einen unglaublich schönen Ort, den Bryce Canyon! Auch nach Island hat man sich an der Natur noch nicht satt gesehen, aber seht selbst:Read more

    Bryce Canyon

    August 16, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Nachdem wir bisher nur einen kurzen Blick über den "Tellerrrand" in den Bryce Canyon geworfen haben, starten wir heute eine komplette Erkundungstour. Wir laufen erst einige Kilometer entlang des Canyonrands und durchqueren ihn anschließend in einer Halbtageswanderung.

    Die Aussicht von oben ist phänomenal und im Canyon kann man aus der Nähe die Größe, Farbe und Struktur der Felsblöcke erleben. Nachdem wir unser Tagesschrittziel locker erreicht und viele schöne Eindrücke gewonnen haben, klingt der Tag gemütlich am Lagerfeuer aus.Read more

    Bryce Canyon National Park 1/2, USA

    July 18, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    Nous avons traversé le parc de Bryce puis nous avons rebroussé chemin étape par étape. Nous avons fait une petite balade de 1,6 km ou un mile. C'était assez joli. Puis nous nous sommes arrêtés à plein de points de vue. Dans le parc de Bryce, nous avons pu voir plein de hoodoos (ce qui veut dire cheminée de fée). Pendant notre repas, nous avons fait tomber un petit peu de jus de tomate. Plein de petits tamias sauvages (Chipmunks) sont acourrus pour le manger.

    Bryce Canyon

    September 30, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Den Bryce Canyon erreichten wir in 1 1/2 Stunden vom Zion Nationalpark, für amerikanische Verhältnisse also gleich um die Ecke. Als wir vom Besucherparkplatz beim Sunrisepoint zum Canyon kamen, hat es uns wirklich "geflasht". Wunderschön das Thal mit den Hoodoos, von oben noch eindrücklicher als bei der Wanderung welche wir im Thal gemacht haben. Tag 2 hiess es bereits um 6 Uhr aus den Federn, damit wir den Sonnenaufgang um 7 Uhr geniessen konnten. Es war echt spektakulär und wunderschön wie die Sonne das Gebiet zum Leben erweckte. Ein super Start in den Tag, welcher nun mit einer langen Fahrt zum Grand Canyon weitergeht....Read more

    Bryce Canyon

    November 9, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 4 °C

    Left Arizona behind and headed north into Utah, aiming for Bryce Canyon. This is very different to the Grand Canyon - nowhere near the same size, but still very impressive geologically. It's famous for the pinnacles inside its canyons, along with rock arches and beautiful stands of pine forests. We'd hoped to do some hiking here, but alas dogs aren't allowed below the canyon rim.

    So again we just drove along the top of the rim, checking out various viewpoints. Such a great spot!

    A big Wow.

    July 31, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Sailed through the Park gate - loving the annual pass. The visitor centre was a little more challenging - parking was looking to be a problem, but we got lucky. Stocked up on water & genned up on hikes & views. Opted to try the shuttle again - worked pretty well at Zion. Except we missed the bus & since it wasn't compulsory the car got the nod. Headed to furthest main viewing area - Bryce lookout. On arrival the car park was packed - should've got the bus. Eventually we got another break & parked up. Headed to the gorge rim & jaws promptly dropped. Words don't do justice to the sight - just epic in size & grandeur. Nice walk along the rim to get away from the crowds. Onwards to Inspiration Point & hopefully a more extended rim walk. On arrival rumbles of thunder suggested otherwise. Ignored the ominous signs but drops of rain forced a rethink & a dash back to the car. Things didn't improve. Decided to drive to the furthest point & hope things might ease off. They didn't. Hail & fork lightning. Decided to retire to the hotel & head back if things improved - they didn't...Read more
