Join me on my travelling and nom nomming adventures!
I still have a fair few drafts to complete from my recent trip to Germany, but thought I’d take a little break today to show you another beautiful part of the world. I’ve had requests to write about Spain, Italy and the USA. To my friends who submitted these requests, thank you for your interest in what I have to say, and rest assured I have not forgotten. I simply need more hours in a day! Don’t we all?
Today, I wanted to draw attention to Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah, USA. We’ve all heard and probably seen photos, movies and documentaries featuring the other great American canyon. Grand as it truly is, it was actually Bryce that took my heart and my breath away.
At Bryce, you’ll find a vast expanse filled with tall and rugged geological structures known as hoodoos. Carved over the years by wind, water and frost, these hoodoos reminded me somewhat of another otherworldly landscape, Cappadocia in Turkey. What sets Bryce apart is the layered appearance imparted by alternating white, red and orange rocks. The result is a spectacular vista that commands your attention at every turn as you hike along the canyon and is especially stunning towards the end of the day when the rays of the setting sun bring out an extra depth and richness to the colours.
I really wish I could have spent more time hiking down to the bottom of the canyon for a different view. Or to have at least spent another full morning there so I could see the sun rise over the hoodoos. Instead, all we got on our group tour was a roughly 2 hour hike around one rim of the canyon, during which I snapped furiously away and hoped that I would end up with at least half a dozen photos that would capture some measure of its majesty. With such splendid views before me, I am reminded:
O Lord, how manifold are thy works! In wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches. (Psalm 104:24 KJV)
Have you been to Bryce Canyon? Which hikes would you recommend doing should I be lucky enough to return there?
