Sunset and Sunrise in Bryce Canyon National Park

We hurried out of Zion National Park to get to Bryce Canyon National Park before dark.  We wanted to get camp set up, cook dinner, and then take the park's star gazing tour.  Because of the elevation and remoteness of the park, it is supposed to be one of the best places to see stars in North America.  Unfortunately, clouds rolled in that evening and there were no stars to be seen.  But we had plenty to deal with just getting camp set up and getting dinner ready!

Sunset from the campsite

We got up at dawn the next morning to watch the sunrise from the rim of Bryce Canyon

Hoodoos:  Bryce Canyon is filled with strangely shaped pinnacles called hoodoos.

I guess we were too late in the season to ski along the canyon rim
