Did you notice? I am taking part in the A to Z Challenge. Everyday, for the entire month of April, I will post a different letter of the alphabet as part of the challenge. Stop by tomorrow and check out what I think about the letter C.
Spires called hoodoos formed from ice and rain
Beautifully framed against the clear blue sky
Images of native people in rock
The ancient legend of coyotes curse
A dark sky free from pollution of light
The moonless night an astronomers dream
7500 stars blanket earth
Ring of Fire for a solar eclipse
Delicate Arch a familiar sight
2002 Olympic Torch relay
Elevation over 8000 feet
Travel to Bryce Canyon and be amazed
We have been to Bryce Park twice and each time it takes my breath away... literally. It's really hard to breath at an elevation of 8,300 feet. However, I am awestruck by the colorful hoodoos and the legend of their origin. As I am more of a sightseer than hiker, I've never ventured down to the hoodoos, but I do love stargazing and Bryce is one of the best spots to see more stars than I usually see in Los Angles. Like most National Parks, the Ranger talks are the best way to learn about the park and it gives you some interesting topics to fill in those awkward silences at family gatherings.
Muse For Today: What takes your breath away? Figuratively or literally.
