Bryce Canyon, Utah.

In October 2013, we headed for Arizona via Utah visiting three National Parks in that beautiful state. The morning we headed toward Bryce, we were surprised by a beautiful snowfall. I’ve shared some of those photos before, but only recently, I discovered a misfiled collection of images from the Utah trip that were captured by my cell phone. The photo above is one of those recently discovered images. Continue reading

This week, Michelle W. asks us to share a photo of a detail that makes a good thing even better. You can read the entire Challenge post here. Almost immediately, I remembered our visit to Bryce Canyon. It was late October and we were headed for our Arizona home. After a warm day visiting two other National Parks in Utah, we headed for Bryce. By the time we got in the area, it was rainy and the high altitude terrain in the area was covered in clouds and fog.
