The story behind the image
Bryce Canyon National Park is one of the must-sees when you’re travelling the Southwest of the United States. We had seen pictures before, and these were promising. However, to experience it on your own is completely different. It’s overwhelming.
We arrived early in the afternoon, checked in at our hotel and then headed straight for the park entrance. The sun was shining and every viewpoint revealed beautiful scenery – one better than the other. We especially liked Sunset Point as it provides a majestic overview with many shades of green, red and orange. This, for example, is the Bryce Amphitheater. Only now I realize that the formation in the bottom right corner resembles a woman: head, long neck, shoulders, arms… To me, that’s art created by nature. Just wow.
By the way, don’t be fooled by the names Sunset Point and Sunrise Point. We found that both points are beautiful both at sunrise and sunset, maybe even more at sunrise!
