HERE IS WHY YOU MUST VISIT BRYCE CANYON, USA

Bryce Canyon, My favorite of all the canyons and national parks I visited on this trip to the USA. My visit to Bryce Canyon was like reading a historical book. As I stood there gazing at this natural wonder, admiring each layer of rocks telling stories of how earth developed this canyon over the 525 million years.

I recommend that you spend the time to each chapter of the Canyon’s history. Don’t rush your visit.

 

Bryce Canyon National Park wows visitors from all over the world with its magical geological formations and brilliant, vibrant colors. As your eyes gaze over the towering hoodoos, narrow fins, natures windows and natural bridges you will find your jaw is agape in wondrous incredulity.

The most surreal experience of my life. Standing on the Rim, I have to admit I was blown away, the morning sun was slowly rising over the horizon, the sky was crystal blue, and the soft chill in the air felt like I was in a movie scene.

#Travelquote: “Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s okay. The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind.” – Anthony Bourdain
