Bryce Canyon National Park / by Dave Hileman

This is an unworldly place. The colors, shapes and changing landscape as the sun rises and falls are hard to explain. It is a disappointing place if you just peer into the canyon from the top or, really bad, from a viewing point having been disgorged by a tour bus. But walk down, and you do go down, amongst the columns and tunnels and staggering rock columns and you will be amazed.
