The End of the Line

Well, after a brief stop in SLC at Porters, some good partying, and some better skiing, Jon and I decided to finally achieve our last goal of stopping at Bryce Canyon National Park Monday and Tuesday. We left SLC Monday AM, paid entry to the park in spare change (the ranger was not amused), and drove around Bryce Canyon checking out the views all afternoon. We proceeded to catch sunset at sunset point, and after dinner, went back and saw some of the most amazing stars I have ever seen.
After a very cold (10 degree) night of sleeping in the car, we woke up at 5:45 and caught the sunrise, which was beyond words. We proceeded to do a small 3 mile hike down into the canyon which allowed for some amazing views of the hoodoo's from below.
Bryce is simply beautiful.

Now I sit with Adam M. and C. Boyd from Burlington, in Cottonwood Heights, where they are living for the winter. Tomorrow, Jon and I start our employment at The Snowpine. Back to the real world? Not really. Bring on the blower!
