I will spare you the long list of superlatives that come to mind for Bryce Canyon. Let me put it this way. Scenic destinations often fail to live up to my expectations or to the glowing descriptions given to me by those who have told me about them.
Bryce Canyon exceeds expectations.
Though a bit crowded, Bryce totally works for me.
Yesterday we drove to all the elevated overlook points. The highest point is some 9,115 feet above sea level and still remains largely snowbound. We also spent a bit over two hours hiking a loop down into the hoodoo amphitheater. The hike took us into the lowest elevations of the hoodoo formations and then brought back up to the rim again.
I loved that.
