this or that thursday: bryce canyon

Bryce Canyon National Park is amazing. It's a great place to go on vacation. We had such a fun time enjoying the scenery and hiking there. The views are stunning. It's really hard to do Bryce Canyon justice in photos, but I'll share a few anyway...


The red, orange and whitish rock formations are called hoodoos and offer spectacular views...










I have never seen such a gorgeous blue sky in all my life. Seriously, it was just so incredibly blue!


I took lots of pictures and Gary even took a picture this time too. I put the camera in green mode and it worked fine. It still feels weird that I'm so much shorter than my tall boys!

  8. Oh I love Bryce park. I wanted to name my boys Bryce because I loved it there so much. My husband hasn't been there, so he didn't feel the same way about the name and I lost. Your pictures are amazing! I'd love to go back there someday.

  12. Deb, I recognized this place the minute I saw your first photo! I was born not far from here in Cedar City and my grandma still lives about an hour from Bryce Canyon. I spent lots of time there as a child and the whole family went back for a visit a few years ago! It is a beautiful place! Did you visit other places in Southern Utah?

    I know what you mean about feeling short next to your boys too. My oldest is quite a bit taller than me and the next one is getting close!

  14. It certainly is an amazing place. I wanted to stop there when we were traveling through but I was happy I was able to capture some similar scenes along our path we were on. When you talk about the sky it reminded me of some images I posted a while back & you mentioned the sky. Made me laugh because I bet you thought I was cranking up that saturation on those- but it really is that blue out here in the desert. :) I was bummed when I saw these on IG because you were so much closer to me- yet still far enough that we couldn't meet up. Maybe one day! Amazing vacation my friend.

  21. Beautiful Deb, and your right sky is blue in AZ. I lived in AZ for 5 years. I miss the crisp mornings, tall mountains, and the blue sky.
