Bryce Canyon Snapshots by kenne
This beautiful land of hoodoos is best view at sunrise or sunset. Unfortunately
these images were taken around mid-day — still a beautiful National Park to visit.
Named after pioneer and cattleman Ebenezer Bryce, who once said of the canyon,
“One hell of a place to loose a cow.”
“Paiute Indian history says the colorful,
wildly-shaped hoodoos were ‘Legend People’
who were turned into stone by the trickster god Coyote.”
. . . and I thought the roadrunner was the trickster!
