Sunrise on Another World
This landscape is so different from any other. The environment so extreme, the geologic formations seem like something from a sci-fi fantasy world, with vibrant colors and thousands of pointed hoodoos that seemingly go on forever, though in reality only occupy a relatively small space on the map.
I've seen comments on my photos from Yellowstone and the Redwoods that show people's affection for those locations. And, while I agree that they're beautiful places, worthy of all their recognition, there is something just magical about Bryce Canyon.
Southern Utah is a vast wonderland of geography. Sparsely populated, remote, and with difficult seasons, I can understand why people don't flock here in as high numbers as some of the other jewels in the US National Park system. But once you do visit, your appetite for more will only increase, I promise.
