Continuation of my Utah trip

This was sort of a basin that could hold rain water between 2 steep dunes.

Rock at dunes. Interesting pattern on it. Great rocks all over of different colors and formations.

At the Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park, Tina and I explored a bit by walking out on the dunes. Would have been great to have a dune buggy. There are 2,000 acres of dunes. Wow. Unbelievable. Tiny pieces of quartz make up the sand (not coral, coral is the color).

After exploring the dunes we took off for Bryce Canyon. Found a site at the campground in Bryce. Stayed for 2 nights. Had a great time exploring. Took some great hikes. Tina is in better condition than myself so she did more strenuous ones. I think if it had been cooler I could have gone down into the canyon and back up with no problem. Some people have a toss up between Bryce and the Grand Canyon, I personally do not think you can compare the two, they both are glorious. Gaelyn, I wanted to stop by the north rim but we ran out of time.  So close. I was disappointed.

Bryce Canyon NP

Simply beautiful. Love those hoodoos


  1. I find the photo of the rock really interesting until I saw the photo of the rock formations.. majestic :-)

  2. You show the faraway vistas of UT very well. Glad you could spend time in such beautiful places. (And, share them with us.)

  3. I haven't been to Bryce in 30+ years. So glad you got to visit there and sorry you didn't get to the canyon.

  4. Lovely photos and pictures. What a nice trip!

  5. Absolutely agree that Bryce and Grand are like comparing apples and oranges. Both are glorious in their own unique ways.
