Bryce Canyon

Due to bad weather my one trip to Bryce Canyon (October, 1997) was cut short.  Therefore, this page is all to brief. But, the Park remains firmly etched in my memory.  The landscape is unlike any other in the southwest.

The tree in this frame was perched at the very edge of a shear precipice. There was a brief break in the snowstorm that swept through the canyon and I found myself at this viewpoint just as a slash of sunlight illuminated the distant valley floor.  The snowstorm cut short my stay, but as Arnie once put it, "I'll be back."
