This blog post is about… another national monument! And it’s another canyon! It’s not as big as the Grand Canyon though. And, it has a funny name, Bryce Canyon, which we nicknamed ‘Rice Canyon’ for no reason other than how close they sound (no, the canyon is not made of rice, although that would be really cool). It was a pretty long hike since we went into the canyon and then back up. There was lots of cool towers of rocks precariously balanced on top of each other (thank goodness none of them fell!).
We went through several openings in rocks that looked a lot like portal doors to the alien planet. They looked pretty awesome. They were all pretty close together.
The canyon was another amazing Painted Mesa, (I really wonder how they’re formed) it does look like some giant took a giant paint bucket of orange, and dropped it over the mountains, then found out somebody had dribbled white paint in the bucket also. This Painted Mesa is smaller than the other one we saw, and it only has two colors: orange and white.
This is another amazing National Monument that, sadly, will never be filled with rice. Enjoy the photos please.
