On day 224 of the Nowhere To Be Project we wallowed in the splendor of Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah. Bryce Canyon is an absolutely remarkable feat of nature. After entering the park (and paying $35), visitors wind their way up nearly twenty miles, reaching over 11,000 feet in altitude. The view from the top is almost too good to be true…almost. As you wind your way back down, there are ample opportunities to pull off for close up views of wildlife and the different areas of the canyon.
I visited the park three years ago and had the pleasure of riding down to the base of the canyon (and back up again) on horseback. That ride is not for the faint of heart, but is so worth it. This time we skipped the horses to focus on the vistas and were not disappointed. It would be very easy to spend several days at Bryce Canyon enjoying the trails and terrain.
