I have spent most of my life in Utah, so I know that I’m lucky to be so close to so many diverse and stunning landscape features.
Here’s a blip from a Utah travel website:
Most of Utah lies on a plateau higher than 4,000 feet above sea level. The geology of this region takes on an amazing variety of shapes and colors. Elevations rise and fall dramatically in the shape of mountains, buttes, and plateaus, the highest reaching over 13,000 feet! Within this varied landscape are hidden treasures and experiences that appeal to everyone — from the rugged, solitude-seeking explorer to the family wanting a relaxing getaway. Utah has something for everyone.
It’s a photographer’s paradise!
The last time I went to Bryce Canyon was in 1990 (wow – that’s 22 years ago!) It was even more beautiful than I remembered it.
I can’t even imagine what the first person to discover this place must have thought. The earth around it all seems pretty normal and then there’s just this big canyon of wind-carved spires. It all feels pretty alien!
It was rather windy when we were there, and also very sunny.
I’m feeling very lucky to have seen such beautiful places!
