Bryce Canyon National Park

August 30th & 31st

Leaving Capitol Reef, the open road follows a long ridge:

If you look off one side of the road you see this:

And off the other side of the road you see this:

The road goes on towards Bryce Canyon National Park…

Along the way, this vintage model Ford turns up…

I believe they’re on their way to a gathering of vintage car owners that is to take place in Zion National Park. Several days later I see a large number of such cars arrive in Springdale, Utah one morning, heading into Zion Park, but I didn’t manage to take any pictures.

 

I arrive in Bryce Canyon rather late and set up camp:

The next day I take a long hike along the Rim Trail and the scenery of Bryce reveals itself…
