The most AMAZING place in the world....

Was, for me, my recent trip to the Grand Canyon, Bryce National Park and Zion National Park. There just wasn't enough time to fully see and explore all the nooks and crannies the parks have to offer.

To hike amongst these canyons puts a new perspective on your own size in life. Even the way these structured and large trees found life amongst high wall embankments makes you feel so...well...small.

The Grand Canyon, while breathtaking and beautiful, was actually not my favorite. It was surreal, like a painting, and you lose much perspective whilst staring out for over 15 miles of foreign cavities and ridges of prehistoric time. It's something you lose yourself in and quickly find you need to turn away to get your head back to square. Wicked history, right there.

I will post more but I wanted to capture a beaming me, on my trip, and these waterfall shots at the canyon of Bryce, where it's desert, dry as a bone and no water to be found except the remnants of sponged rainwater coming out of the rocks...some water as old as 4000 years!

It was an amazing and gorgeous I will remember for the remainder of my life. Y es, it was that profound and powerful. A spiritual moment that we all need from time to time. It's nothing you can get from a book, per se. It's all right here, under our very noses, in our own backyards.

Bryce is one of our favorite places. My entire family prefers it to the Grand Canyon. Glad you enjoyed your trip.

We just got home from Colorado after driving through some of the same areas. Totally amazing what nature can accomplish in thousands of years. I agree the grand canyon is just so overwhelming, not only the amazing views, but the absolute quiet.
