Bryce canyon

                           After our visit to Zion, we moved on to Bryce canyon, only a couple of hours drive away,  but totally different! What must it have been like for the first explorers to come across this, I can't imagine.

I am amazed you had the energy to move on, Frank
Frank L Croston.: I was quite surprised myself, but after the day before this was easy! smile
It really does blow the mind, Frank! I don't suppose you have anything quite like this in your homeland???
Frank L Croston.: No, nothing as strange as this, Ginnie.

What a delight. Man alive what a fabulous picture. It is like you say to Elizabeth, you run out of superlatives... Everything is so wonderful. Lucky you with some sun and clouds.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Astrid, we were lucky with the sun and clouds for photo's, but there was a very cold wind.

The sort of landscape that you could not make up if you had to design Earth from scratch. Did you do any walks into down into the canyon?
Frank L Croston.: Indeed, Alan, some of it reminded me of parts of the first 'Star wars' film.Yes we did, we spent a couple of hours down in there. Nice cloudy blue skies, but a b****y cold wind!
Gobsmacked is the only word for it Frank
Frank L Croston.: It is difficult to describe, Bill, I'd say awesome, but they use that for a cup of coffee here! smile
They would have felt as if they had just been punched in the mouth Frank, as I do.
Frank L Croston.: It must have been hard to believe, Andrew.
Amazing like Disneyland on steroids.
Frank L Croston.: Great description, Martin. smile

Artistic erosion, with a 3D feel in the picture.
Frank L Croston.: Hard to take in, Louis. Thanks.
I can't quite take this in, how on earth must you have felt when you saw it for the first time.
Frank L Croston.: It does quite take your breath away, Brian, its a wonderland.

What an amazing landscape - it looks like a giant multi faceted crystal.
Frank L Croston.: It is just incredible, Anne.
The hoodoos amaze me. Talk about going to church....
Frank L Croston.: I've never seen anything like it, Mary.
Oh my!!!... breathtaking doesn't even come close Frank....petersmile
Frank L Croston.: Amazing place, Peter.
Amazing, isn't it - I visited there in 1972!
Frank L Croston.: It is Tom...They still talk about that!
