Non-Photographic Vacation: Day 6

We spent all of today in Bryce Canyon, and I may yet get some magic hour shots, but the wi-fi is working so I’m posting now! The morning and early afternoon were all rain and thunder, so we sat by the fire, had an early lunch, and even ended up taking naps.  Then, the weather broke and we walked almost all the way down into the canyon. Best non-photographic lesson yet: I need to lose some weight and gain some aerobic fitness.

Early this morning, the sun broke through the clouds for a few minutes, but just for a few minutes.

Late in the afternoon, we were able to hike down into the canyon. Not ALL the way down, but close.

It was nice to have some different perspectives on the formations, but the hike back up was more brutal than Canyon de Chelly.

More fun on the trail.

We both made it back to the top, but I wasn't smiling this big. More like gasping.

During this morning's storms, I played with some images from earlier in the week. These are going to keep me busy for a long time, I think.
