Bryce is magic to us. We went here four years ago to visit our friend working in the park for a Summer and it was the first time we saw hoodoos, mesas, and desert beauty. We drove our 200,000-mile old Ford Taurus out there and expected to break down the entire time. I sat at this overlook drawing lips and noses for a drawing class and it's one of my favorite memories.
I love this place. We went on a long hike and it felt fantastic after being in the car so long. We hiked to a baby slot canyon and met friendly people along the way. I bought a geology map of Zion and we identified different ages of rock layers (so fun). I loved seeing painters standing by the river with their easels and brushes. I could sit and watch them for hours.
