Bryce canyon- an extraterrestrial experience

Time for yet another highlight on our southwest US roadtrip – the Bryce canyon. I had seen lot´s of pictures from this odd canyon before actually seeing it in real. But nothing can prepare you for this breathtaking natural wonder. Unfortunately it is hard to bring about the feeling of this place in pictures. It has to be seen and experienced.

We arrived late afternoon and after checking in to our motel in Bryce we headed towards the national park. We spent two hours wandering along the rim, just getting absorbed by the colors shifting over this bizarre landscape.

The next morning we woke up very early to do a morning trek while the air was still fresh. Seeing Bryce canyon from above is one thing. As you descend into it the view is completely different. We were surprised how spacious it was at the canyon bottom and that it was so green. Surrounded by the pinnacles I felt very small and very aware of how lucky I was to be able to discover something so special as this.

Below follows first the evening part and after the sunset picture, taken from our motel, there are some pictures with a diffrent perspective taken during the morning trek.
