After catching a glimpse of the goods Bryce Canyon had on offer, we committed to a hike to see it from another perspective. We found ourselves on a steep, switchback-laden trail that led through the heart of the amphitheatre of ‘hoodoos’. After a rapid loss of altitude, we decided at the bottom to complete a circuit rather than go back the way we came.
The loop took us through the canyon to Sunrise Point, and we climbed up the Navajo Loop up to the long Rim Trail - pausing frequently to admire the spectacular views. It felt like we were walking in a gigantic scaled fairy kingdom or at least King Neptune’s lair if it existed on land. Four hours, 10 km, plenty of photos and some very weary legs later, we finally made it back to the car.
