Bryce Canyon, Utah

It’s a helluva place to lose a cow” -Ebenezar Bryce

The talk around Ruby’s Inn was that it would snow overnight. It was said with disappointment but to me this was exciting news. Early the next morning, we arrived at the Canyon in bitter cold but it was a place of wonder I will always remember. As a bonus, it was deserted, we were the only ones there for the first hour near dawn.

The Watchman, Zion National Park, Utah

Sometimes I do get to places just when God’s ready to have somebody click the shutter” -Ansel Adams

Zion National Park was created in 1918, and it was one of the gems of the U.S. Park system. It includes the Zion Canyon, cut out of the towering Navajo Sandstone by the Virgin River. An efficient shuttle system moves visitors about. It is worth a trip at all times of the year, our October 2006 trip was a particularly colorful time.

Its not the more famous Badlands of Alberta or South Dakota, but Ontario has the Cheltenham Badlands. It is an area that has been eroded and where the subsoil contains a large quantity of iron oxide. This gives the soil a reddish color. Their are also bluish-green bands where the groundwater has reacted with it. The Bruce Trail runs by it.
