Monday was our first day at Bryce Canyon National park. We decided to get an overview by first stopping at the visitors center to watch the movie. Every park has one that tells it's story.
Then we took the free park shuttle bus, getting off and on at each view point.
The sights were amazing both looking out to the distant horizon, and down over the tops of the eroded rock formations.
We probably walked about two miles. I found it a bit difficult to get my breath when we were going uphill, but then reminded myself that we were over 8000 feet elevation. We plan on doing a couple of the less challenging hikes, and I hope I can get acclimated to the altitude.
Our next post will be looking up from one of the trails down among the hoodoos (which somehow came to refer to the columns you see above).
