Bryce and Zion.

The most recent places that we have visited are Bryce and Zion National Parks. Both places where amazing. At Zion we went on a hike up to a place called Angel's Landing. It is this extremely narrow ridge with thousand foot drops on either side. One wrong step and it would end your life. That high
point in the middle of the picture (left) is Angel's Landing and the ridge leading up to it is the path that you take. Not exactly the least scary hike there, people have died on that trail.
The other park we went to, Bryce, had very interesting rock spires called hoodoos. They formed when a fin like rock formation coming out of the canyon wall started to get vertical cracks and over time freezing and thawing would erode away parts of the rocks leaving behind the hoodoos. A very peaceful place that is amazing.
