Not that we haven't seen enough canyons on this trip so far, however Bryce Canyon is promised as a prime natural spectacle not to be missed by the concerned traveler. Its red sandstone formations, carved by erosion over millions of years, provide breathtaking views. We also learned that this part of Utah is frequently subjected to thunderstorms, and evidence of lightning struck trees were all around us.Finding affordable accommodation in this rather popular tourist area was a different story. Since we arrived rather late in the day, a mild sense of panic arose as NO signs were increasingly switched on in front of the VACANCY bit. But in the end it was all good – we secured 2 wee cabins for Team Berg and Jeff and Catha, and as we found out that decent beer was available in the nearby restaurant the nerved started to settle.
