Bryce Canyon National Park
Most of the trails down into Bryce were closed due to snow but we were happy that the cashier in the store suggested we take the 3 mile round trip Fairyland Trail.
And this is what a happy hiker looks like when he finally gets his coffee!
The trail started out with quite a bit of slushy snow, but then came the fun part.
Slick, sticky, deep, red mud!
Trace found a really neat rock.
As we went further down the canyon the snow wasn't too bad on the trails and it got a bit warmer.
You can see the trail wind down here.
The deep oranges, red and pinks were amazing!
See that window on the wall?
Looking through the window.
And on the other side you can see Trace looking through the window.
The famous "Wall" we were told we'd know it when we saw it. Yep. Pretty cool!
The blue of the sky was so deep! Loved seeing the trail of an airplane up above.
Getting closer to the wall.
HERE to go see it on their blog. It's about 1/2 way down.
Near the very bottom is the marker. Veni Vidi Vici!!
And here is the Bridge with a window to the left side.
After a short lunch break we head back up.
This was Lee and Trace's first hike in the snow but they did great! Look at Lee go!
A little water break and some rest time in the shade and we're almost there. Surprisingly, it seemed faster coming back up.
The Fairlyland Trail.HERE. They are the ultimate off road RV! I'd sure love one to take to Alaska. Anyone want to buy one for me?
Taking a little break. The weather has been cold, windy and crazy. Today, we had a hot day!
The colors and shapes of the rocks and hoo doos made this a really fun hike. Anyone can do it.
The rocks along the way were very colorful as well.
The Visitor Center was closed, but we walked around and read the informative signs outside.
Hurley and Steve visiting with Smokey.
He runs around, splashes, drinks and lays down in the pools.
The next day we had about an inch of new snow down. As you see below, it was COLD!
Looking up in the skylight you could see the ice crystals and a little frozen snow. I can't wait to head out to Goblin Valley and warmer temps!!
