Bryce Canyon National Park Views

Bryce Canyon National Park Views

Scenic landscape view into Bryce Canyon National Park.  A spectacular place to visit.

Interesting fact: Water, ice, and gravity are the natural forces that formed the geological “hoodoos” that make Bryce Canyon unique.

This park is named after Ebenezer Bryce, who started ranching the area in 1875. Upon showing the canyons to visitors, he is said to have remarked, “It’s a hell of a place to lose a cow.”

Bryce Canyon’s rocks are among the youngest of those on the Colorado Plateau, dating back a mere 65 million years ago to the Cretaceous period.

Cool fact: Most rural parts of the U.S. have 2500 stars visible on any given clear night. At Bryce Canyon, that number jumps to a whopping 7500. Currently, these essential remaining dark night skies are being threatened by mining in the nearby community of Alton. The mining will potentially adversely affect the clear skies. It is a hugely contentious situation.

Geological fact: Bryce Canyon isn’t actually a canyon. It’s actually a natural amphitheater.

Total Area 35,835 acres – Annual Visitation 1,385,352 in 2012 (view all years) – Park Creation Date September 15, 1928 –  Entrance Fee $25 per vehicle per week – Time Zone Mountain – Lowest Elevation 6,620 feet at Yellow Creek – Highest Elevation 9,115 feet at Rainbow Point – Lowest Average Temp 9°F in January – Record Low Temp -26°F in 1963 – Highest Average Temp 78°F in July –  Record High Temp 98°F in 2002

Colorado South St Vrain Canyon

Colorado South St Vrain Canyon

 

Here is another  slow shutter speed  portrait view of some of the waterfalls on the south St Vrain Creek flowing down the south St Vrain Canyon from the snow covered Rocky Mountain Peaks above,  Boulder County, Colorado.   This is looking up or west.  The canyons are such a great place to hang out and cool off.   All of the creeks coming down from the high country have lots of great fishing  and hiking opportunities too.  We are lucky to have about seven different canyons that all go up to the high elevation and peak to peak highway.  Each one of them is a little different, so it is always fun to mix it up and make nice big loop.
