Bryce Canyon is the favorite national park of many people, especially Europeans. The scenery is great before you even get to the park.
But brrrrrr!!! This was the high temperature at 2 pm. (That's 7 degrees Celsius if you're so inclined.)
I knew I looked goofy, but I didn't care.
It was cloudy, but this park is so pretty, it didn't matter. This is the view from Sunset Point, probably the best overlook.
Natural Bridge is not really a bridge (formed by water), but an arch.
The sun came out for about 2 minutes. It's strange how the best pictures at Bryce seem to be looking into the sun.
Had a great free camping spot about 4 miles north of the park entrance, but I forgot to take a picture of it. Moved on to Zion National Park thinking it would be warmer. This is the free camping spot here, one I discovered 9 years ago. It's on a side road just south of Mt. Carmel Junction.
The fall colors this year are better than I've ever seen them.
Near the campsite was this hole in the mountain, so of course it needed to be investigated.
I was expecting an old mine, but it appeared to be just a hole for water to go through when it rained. It came out into a wash on the other side.
There were lots of modern day petroglyphs all through the tunnel. Looks like Darth Vader was here.
