Nature Finds A Way

Douglas Fir – Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah

Bryce Canyon is a wonderful place to visit anytime of the year, but it’s especially photogenic in the cooler months when snow might show up. We arrived for this particular visit the day before Thanksgiving in November, stayed long enough to see snow cover the amazing features of the surrounding terrain, and ended up enjoying two Thanksgiving meals in the process. Now that’s what I call a proper holiday!

Panorama Point — Utah

One of the many reasons that we love doing road trips is encountering the unexpected, like this view that we stumbled across near sunset as we were trying to find a camping spot for the night. It was near the end of a long day of driving, we were getting weary and hungry, and we were just done and beginning to shut down. But then we saw this pullout along the side of the road, noticed the nearby cliffs picking up the color of the evening sunset, and… well… we just had to stop and take a photo.
