This blog could also be called Karen's Rock Fantasy. The visits to Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks should really be two separate blogs, but I loaded all the photos to one, so this is really long. Deal with it. Both places were fabulous! Above is one of my favorite views of the hoodoos in Bryce Canyon.
A spring hailstorm greeted us as we entered Utah and if you look closely between the two right railroad crossing arms, you can see a funnel cloud that dipped down from the storm cell. Welcome to Utah.
The shuttle bus in Zion Canyon for tourists. You can't drive your own vehicle in the park during the tourist season April-October. We took it all the way to the end and then got off at each stop on the way back.
It's hard to believe these tops haven't toppled over the years.

What a wild world of rock here! I love these hoodoos!
This arch, called 'Natural Bridge Rock' is amazing in its formation. Rain dissolved the chemicals inside the hole, but left the harder rock on top and around the sides intact.
