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

Arches National Park Utah Castle Panorama

Arches Castle Panorama

Panorama view of the Castle in Arches National Park in Utah.  Wingate sandstone ( 200 million years old) – Orange-red rocks of the wingate sandstone are solidified sand dunes. A desert as large as the Sahara once drifted here. Wind blown sand were buried by newer sediments and cemented  into stone, eventually eroding to form the spires of the Castle and the high cliffs surrounding the Fruita area.

Chinle Formation ( 225 million years old) – Gray-green and purple layers of the Chinle Formation were deposited as volcanic  ash drifted down upon a low, swampy floodplain. Lowland conifer trees fell into the swamps mud to become petrified wood. Phytosaurs , crocodile-like reptiles 18 feet long lived in the shallow lakes and meandering rivers.

Moenkopi Formation (245 million years old) – Brick-red layers of the Moenkopi Formation are full of ripple marks and mud cracks, This was an arid, subtropical land of river deltas, tidal mudflats, and a shallow sea. Small lizard-like reptiles left footprints and swim smears in mud covered by shallow water.

Astrophotography Night

Astrophotography Night Art Print

After leaving Scottsdale Arizona to see my mom, I drove to Bryce Canyon in Utah for some astrophotography.  I arrived here in the dark so it was a little hard to find the composition I was looking for to show a little bit of the Canyon and hoodoos. Here is scenic portrait view into the colorful celestial night sky with the silhouette of a cool forest tree looking into a stellar starfield galaxy and universe.

Forests dominate the upper altitudes of the Bryce Canon Paunsaugunt Plateau containing white fir-spruce-aspen forest. Bristlecone pine lives in the high limestone knolls. Ponderosa pine and manzanita dominate the middle altitudes. Forest health and return to historic density are managed with prescribed fire. Pinyon pine-juniper forest dominates the lower elevation areas of the park. Gambel oak, cactus and yucca punctuate the lower elevation juniper forest.

Hope you like.

Waking up In Bryce Canyon Utah vBlog Video

After leaving Scottsdale Arizona on my road trip, I headed to Bryce Canyon National Park.  What a great drive it was. Nothing like waking up and catching a beautiful sunrise after a great night of astrophotography.

Really wanted to get a hoodoos with the sky, after getting there in the pitch black new moon night, it was hard to find a great location.  So I settled for some cool trees instead of falling off a cliff 🙂

Please check out some of the new images in the iGallery from this trip – http://james-insogna.artistwebsites.com

Arches Utah Rainbow

Utah Rainbow

This is from our road trip to Arizona and back. Nothing like seeing a rainbow in a scenic place like Arches Nation Park in Utah.  The colors with the snow caped mountains in the distance, what a sight to see.  I chased this rainbow from a few different places, a spectacular view.

Arches National Park is a US National Park in eastern Utah. The park is located on the Colorado River 4 miles (6 km) north of Moab, Utah. It is known for containing over 2,000 natural sandstone arches, including the world-famous Delicate Arch, in addition to a variety of unique geological resources and formations.

The park is located just outside of Moab, Utah, and is 76,679 acres (119.811 sq mi; 31,031 ha; 310.31 km2) in area.  Its highest elevation is 5,653 feet (1,723 m) at Elephant Butte, and its lowest elevation is 4,085 feet (1,245 m) at the visitor center. Forty-three arches are known to have collapsed since 1977. The park receives 10 inches (250 mm) of rain a year on average.

The national park lies atop an underground evaporate layer or salt bed, which is the main cause of the formation of the arches, spires, balanced rocks, sandstone fins, and eroded monoliths in the area. This salt bed is thousands of feet thick in places, and was deposited in the Paradox Basin of the Colorado Plateau some 300 million years ago when a sea flowed into the region and eventually evaporated.
