    A day in Bryce Canyon

    October 12 in the United States

    If you go to Escalante, do not miss a meal a Devil’s Garden. Kind of upscale, southwestern food. Very yummy.

    The weather report for today was cool and sunny, so we decided to go to Bryce Canyon. We had been there years ago with the kids and remembered it as very nice. But still we were wowed by the hoodoos and all the formations. It was just gorgeous. Joe and I walked a 3 mile loop, Queen’s Garden merging with Navajo Loop. Maybe not so long in distance, but enough elevation gain to get the cardio going (total of about 700 feet, all at the end on switchbacks). As we were climbing to the top, we were with a Japanese couple who didn’t speak any English. They were clearly trying to ask us how old Joe was, and didn’t believe me when I put up 8 fingers and a zero with my thumb and second finger. Then they shook his hand, bowed their heads, and made a big fuss, all in Japanese, though, so I couldn’t understand it. After a lunch at Bryce Point, we took the 15 mile drive along the park, stopping at all the lookouts and soaking in the views. All in all, it was a very exhilirating day. Snow on the highest points made it just a little bit more beautiful!Read more

    In Escalante

    October 11 in the United States

    So, a few weeks ago, I bought tickets to Salt Lake, bought a Utah guide book, and made hotel reservations in three different spots. That was the extent of my planning. Yesterday, we got in our rental car and drove about 5 hours to Escalante, in Grand Staircase National Monument, near Bryce Canyon. From Panguitch to Escalante, the drive was pretty awesome, Red Canyon being my favorite.

    We are staying in an overpriced hotel, but it was the only place in town with an elliptical trainer, and that was one of my non-negotiables. Rain was scheduled for today, so a trip to the Visitors’ Center got us acclimated and kept us dry. From there we just decided to drive and see if we could find a dry spot. First try, down a 14 mile dirt road, Hole in the Rock Road, to Devil’s Garden (lots of unusual rock formations). The plan was aborted at about mile 12 when the car was fishtailing in the mud. Then up to Boulder, where there is a paved road. Burr Trail Road went through a gorgeous canyon and lo and behold we found the Slot Canyon someone had told me about!

    At that point the weather had really improved, so we decided to get back on lovely Highway 12 and drive to the trailhed for Calf Creek Falls. WOW. Three miles out and three back, and Joe was a trooper. The path goes along the creek and up and down along some of the side of the canyon. Not much elevation gain, probably under 300 feet total, but there were a few ascents that got the heart rate going. It was really a beautiful walk and the falls themselves were beautiful. We talked with someone who had been there a while ago, and she said the water was just a trickle. All in all a great day, the majesty of these landscapes really puts you in the mood for confronting life’s big questions!

    Bryce Canyon

    August 16 in the United States

    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

    Totally Awesome, Bryce Canyon,

    June 20 in the United States

    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.

    Bryce Canyon - the Grand Staircase

    July 9, 2017 in the United States

    Allthough Lars didn't get his Pick-Up (we ended up with a Jeep Patriot) and we drove 8 hours in total, it was so worth it! Bryce Canyon, the red Hoodoos and those views where breathtaking (as was the hike 😉)

    Bryce Canyon

    July 9, 2017 in the United States

    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

    USA - Bryce Canyon

    May 21 in the United States

    Auf dem Weg nach Page, besuchten wir den atemberaubenden Bryce Canyon. Der Bryce-Canyon-Nationalpark liegt im Südwesten von Utah und befindet sich in einer Höhe von 2400 bis 2700 Metern.

    Der Bryce Canyon wurde nicht durch einen Fluss gebildet. Er ist damit kein Canyon im eigentlichen Sinne wie zum Beispiel der Grand Canyon. Wind, Wasser und Eis erodierten die Kante des Plateaus zu grossen Amphitheatern mit bizarren Felsnadeln, sogenannte Hoodoos. Diese Felsnadeln erreichen eine Höhe von bis zu 60 Meter. Die so entstandenen Amphitheater erstrecken sich über eine Länge von über 30 km.Read more

    Utah - Bryce Canyon - Hatch

    July 4 in the United States

    Heute morgen ging es von Page aus los. Nachdem wir Arizona verlassen hatten, wollten wir in Utah am Lone Rock frühstücken und im Colorado River schwimmen gehen. Dummerweise ging der Plan nicht so auf. Wir wissen jetzt, warum die Amis alle einen Pick- Up fahren. Leider sind wir im Sand stecken geblieben. 😂🙈
    Die Amerikaner sind so super nett und hilfsbereit. Wir hatten echt Glück. Es kamen direkt ca. 8 Leute angelaufen und haben uns in unserer Lage geholfen. Das Auto wurde ausgegraben und mit allen Kräften rausgeschoben.👍🤗

    Gefrühstückt haben wir dann auf einem Schotterweg... 🙈

    Danach ging's weiter zum Bryce Canyon. Einfach ein unglaublich schöner Nationalpark. Wir machten eine wunderschöne Wanderung durch die Landschaft.

    Nach der langen Wanderung ging's auf nach Hatch (15min entfernt) zu unserer Unterkunft "Hatch Station". Nichts besonderes, hat aber alles was man braucht. Eine Woche nun in Amerika unterwegs und noch kein Steak gegessen. Das musste heute Abend schleunigst geändert werden. Im Saloon in Hatch darf man sich sein Steak selbst grillen😍😋 Also einmal T-Bone, einmal Ribeye und dazu lecker Bier🤗
