Bryce Canyon National Park – Geology

I am breaking this post into two parts. Because I can’t imagine writing about Bryce Canyon National Park without spending a few words on the geology of the park. But if I do, the post will be too long for anybody to digest.

*********

To begin, Bryce Canyon is not a real canyon. It is not carved by flowing water.

Hello, I am back. Sorry about the silence.

I’ve been away on a road trip visiting national parks of America’s west.

We began our journey at McCarran International Airport in Vegas, where we picked up the rental car and drove to Springdale, Utah.

Drive to Italy

“It was pleasant to drive back to the hotel in the late afternoon, above a sea as mysteriously colored as the agates and cornelians of childhood, green as green milk, blue as laundry water, wine dark.”
― F. Scott Fitzgerald, Tender Is the Night

Road to Snæfellsnes, Iceland

Descend, bold traveller, into the crater of the jökull of Snæfell, which the shadow of Scartaris touches before the Kalends of July, and you will attain the center of the earth. 
-Jules Verne

The volcano to the center of the earth is Snæfellsjökull and it is situated on the Snæfellsnes peninsula.

After picking up the rental car, I set out to my own expedition. It only takes two hours to get to Snæfellsnes from Reykjavik. But when driving in Iceland, stops are essential.
