Day 6, 7/12/09
Greetings from Kanab, AZ, the gateway to the North Rim. Today was red rock day, at altitude. Lots of climbing and descending, with great views on the way up and down. Saw deer, cattle (open range) and lots of red rocks. Took much longer than I'd anticipated, so we skipped Petrified Forest SP and shortened our stay at Kodachrome Basin. Most of the afternoon was spent at Bryce Canyon NP, where the two displayed pictures were taken (along with over 100 more shots). Clouds were excellent, providing good contrast of light & shadow - plus a few raindrops.
Two good meals today - a home-made pizza for lunch in Tropic and some good Mexican food in Kanab.
Tomorrow is north rim and I bet I take another 150 pics.
Today, 256 mi, 1782 for the trip.
