A Fall At Bryce Canyon Utah

UP TO BRYCE CANYON...  

The next morning after our simple breakfast at the inn, we ascended up the mountains, an hour journey drive and on the way, the scenery was spectacular.  Snow was everywhere and my brother-in-law had to use his driving skills to maneuver the vehicle.  On the way up, we stopped by several parts, either to take pictures or to answer nature calls.....

We had to be very careful when we walked on the snow.  One wrong slip and we could end up landing on our bumps.  That is not so serious, I mean landing on bumps... my friend slipped and bumped her head on the ground!  Ouchhh.....

As I mentioned before, she is more on the adventurous kind and I, on the other hand, would not want to take chances.  (I have fractured my leg TWO times so I know what I should do!)  I stayed back in the car while she walked up on a higher side to capture the scenery.  After some ten minutes or so, I saw her walking back to the car, with one hand rubbing her head continuously.... "Oh dear, something must have happened" I told my sister....

Yeah, she slipped and fell backwards while descending.... she told us two tourists helped her up... 
Thank God, she did not vomit or any blurred vision or concussion throughout the day.  No more ascending or descending by foot after that, our shoes were not suitable for any snow walking....
Supposed to answer nature call here...
Unfortunately it was closed during this season...
We came to this visitor's office instead.... 
The cold weather made us answer nature calls every now and then... LOL...
The drive continued up and up....
Snowy on both parts of the road...
And we reached Bryce Canyon....
Hoodoos....
Unlike Grand Canyon, this one has its own formations....
I did not capture much pictures... 
My friend has breathtaking ones... videos and all... LOL... 
Thanks to our ever skillful driver....

  4. Oh dear, another fall! I hope that your friend is all right. Usually anything involving the head can be worrisome. I love the scenery and I would love to experience such cold weather again.

DESSERTS OVER... THE MAIN MEAL CAME... It should be the other way round but knowing us, desserts would go to waste after this main meal.  So...
