15,000 Steps and 2800 Miles

We hit Bryce Canyon today and instead of just parking on the rim and taking a few pictures, or going cross-country skiing in a -5° F dawn like we did the last time we were here, the boys and I took a 3 mile hike down into the Canyon and took nearly 400 pictures.

You can see them starting here at the picture this link goes to.

We took part of the Navajo Loop and the rest of the Queen's loop, starting at Sunset, hitting Sunrise on the ascent, and then got back to Sunset with me carrying Jet only a little of the way. 15,000 steps for the day and I worked for a lot of them. *laughs*

We ended up Richfield, Utah, went swimming in an unheated pool outside the hotel and enjoyed it, had a very lackluster Chinese buffet for dinner and local ice cream for a treat. And we were so sore and tired I've pretty much just managed this as an entry. *laughs*

This is while we were well down in at the bottom of the canyon, looking up at all the amazing towers of stone. There was this crack to the side of the main trail. *laughs*

All right, one more... more what everyone expects of this place...

We expect to be home tomorrow. My knees are so sore I'm not sure I'll be up for much more than driving. *laughs*
