This was our first time hiking with crampons and it was awesome! We just slipped them over our normal hiking shoes and were on our way. The hike down the canyon was practically empty (nothing like snow, ice and mud to deter people). Go to Bryce in winter, folks! Tag your favorite adventure buddy and set a date 😉 @mirizubrik
Do you ever crave silence? It's probably the biggest draw to nature for me. Of course, I love hiking through beautiful scenes like this, but I'm an intentionally slow hiker because I'm constantly stopping to soak it all in. I relish the sound of silence. The perfect day for me is one spent outdoors away from the usual hustle & bustle of regular life. But, then again, I love exploring new cities so riddle me that 🤷♀️
I realized this weekend that Bryce is the 16th national park I've visited. There are 59 parks total though, so we've still got some work to do! What's your favorite national park? I think mine is Zion 😊
Peep the hiker for reference to how huge these hoodoos are! I felt like we were hiking through the Thunder Mountain ride from Disneyland, which also makes me *face palm* for relating real world places back to Disneyland 😂🙈 Tell me I'm not the only one who does this...🙃🚂🎢 Also, where's the rollercoaster that brings you back to the top? Hiking at a high altitude in the cold & snow is no joke... I'm not going to admit how long it took us to hike 0.6 miles uphill to the rim 😅
Yes, I’m in Utah. But no, I’m nowhere near the famous Arches National Park in Moab. But the great thing about Utah is that these sorts of landscapes can be found all over the state!
This particular little arch (only big enough for two adults to sit inside) is found at Pioneer Park, in the red rocks above St. George. I had so much fun taking photos here yesterday! 🤩

*THUMP!* Startled, I swiveled to my right and about ten feet away in some bushes, I saw something black and furry retreat into the foliage. I was later told it was probably a moose but I assumed a black bear--I couldn't tell and I didn't wanna find out! Clanging my keys and shouting (and praying) for dear life, I skedaddled back down to the trailhead and went to straight to @rei to get me some bear spray + bells. Went back a couple days later and finished the hike! Swipe right to see what was at the top!

@ouramdream - Définitivement un de nos plus beaux souvenirs de voyage : s’endormir et se réveiller face à la vue la plus emblématique de Monument Valley 🏜⛺️ Ça vaut tous les hôtels du monde ça 👌🏼😍
