I figured that it only made sense to check out Bryce Canyon on the way to Escalante. I had seen a few pictures of the place and I wasn’t all that excited but I thought I’d have a look anyway. It was about 8º when I got there about an hour before sunrise but even in the pre dawn light, I was completely awed by the endless spires which have been carved by mother nature over untold years. As the sun climbed over the horizon and shone it’s first light down in the valley, it lit up the spires in a color that I had never witnessed before and I knew I was seeing something truly magical.
