In follow up to yesterday’s Day 129, and staying in a Bryce Canyon frame of mind, I thought I would add an addendum to our unforgettable visit there just three weeks ago. The first trail we experienced was at the southern end of the Park, and is known as The Bristlecone Loop Trail. It is a 1.1 mile round trip and leads to views of The Pink Cliffs, and a 100 mile vista taking in the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. The Bristlecone in the photo is over sixteen centuries old, a true force of nature.
I wanted to capture that moment when the spectacular panorama appeared and the view of the 2000 foot drop into the canyon below unfolded. It was simply breathtaking. The next day we went back and I made the following video to re-create that moment.
Let me know if I’ve succeeded.
