Bryce Canyon National Park Photo Essay

Entrance to Bryce Canyon National Park

Our trip to Utah focused primarily on Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon National Park. I had decided to not hike in Bryce Canyon, opting for a driving tour with Boomer instead. I was starting to feel guilty that I was boarding Boomer too much, even if he was making friends everywhere he went!

Here are some of our photos from Bryce Canyon National Park:

The one trail that dogs are allowed on is Sunset Point to Sunrise Point. It’s a short 1 mile (1.6 km) trail with a slight elevation gain of 34 feet (10 m). Don’t let the “no dogs allowed” signs fool you – dogs are allowed on this trail! There is even a poo station with collection bags to prove it 🙂

We also witnessed something magical while we were at Bryce Canyon. OK maybe not magical, but we were rewarded by waiting for the right moment. We arrived at Fairyland Canyon which was socked in by fog. There was fellow photographer standing at the overlook with me, who I assumed was also disappointed by the fog. He jumped back in his car after a few minutes of pondering what to do with the socked in canyon. I watched his taillights disappear into the fog as I felt a slight breeze brush up against my face. Here is what I saw over a period of three minutes:

Awesome fog rolling pics.

One of my friends told me whatever I do when I go to the states not to miss Bryce canyon because it’s more impressive than the Grand Canyon but much less touristy. I love seeing pictures of it.

Bryce is amazing – the colors and hoodoos are unreal! I recommend adding Zion National Park ( just to the west of Bryce) to you list when you come to visit – Zion’s beauty is unlike anything I have ever seen before 🙂
