The Earth... Like the Sun...
Like the air... Belongs to everyone...
and to no one.
Today was another busy day.
First we drove into the town of Panguich for Breakfast.
We ate at a little local cafe... The type of place that I frequented back in my
trucker days.... a small cafe on the side of the main street in a dusty town in the middle
As to be expected.. breakfast was home made, made to order and great!
Just don't be in a rush... this ain't NYC!
After breakfast we drove about 15 miles or so to Bryce Canyon National Park.
Bryce Canyon is somewhat of a misnomer... it really isn't a canyon but
just a series or eroded areas along this long ridge.
The colors of the rock and the fanciful shapes are what make this place so special.
The rock shapes are created by layers of rock of differing densities. Some parts erode
faster than other parts.
The colors are from different minerals (iron, copper etc) that was deposited at
The view below is at "Inspiration Point" in the park. It is reached by a 1/2 mile or so
walk up a steep trail where you gain a good 800' or so in altitude.
At 8,000 + feet it made for some huffing and puffing.
At one of the stops today we met 3 young girls from Switzerland
who were traveling thru the US.
Turns out they are from Thalwil which is a town just about 20km from our good
friends Marcel and Micheala who live in Richterswil.
Hallo Marcel und Michaela, die Welt wird immer kleiner. Wir vermissen euch beide.

One more day here in the Red Canyon then its off to
Kodachrome State Park and hopefully better phone and internet connectivity.
