As we made our way up to the Rim Trail after leaving Fairyland Canyon in Bryce, Alan spotted this very, very small Short-horned Lizard. We haven’t seen a lot of very large lizards here at Bryce Canyon but this guy was tiny – about an inch long.
It took some effort to get a picture. Luckily, he sat still long enough . . .
This was last picture that Alan got and it is my favorite!
On Monday, we did our last hike in Bryce Canyon National Park – Peekaboo Loop. We had already hiked part of the Trail when we did Queen’s Garden on Sunday.
This time we were headed to the less-traveled Peekaboo Loop. Once we got off the Navajo Loop, the crowds thinned out significantly. The only down side was that the horses also take Peekaboo Loop!
We made a big effort to finish strong on the climb back up to the rim. This is the view looking down:
I’m going to schedule this Post for Wednesday. We will be on our way to Zion Canyon National Park with a slight detour through Cedar City to pick up my Mom at the airport. She will be camping with us through Salt Lake City.
Watch for one more post from Bryce – sunrise photos from the rim. The hoodoos take on a completely different look with the sun hanging low. We got up early Tuesday morning to see the sunrise.
