Having survived a cold night at Bryce Canyon’s 8000 plus feet, I hoped for a good sunrise. What I got was a great one. On previous trips to Bryce (Sep-Oct), the fall sun never rose in the right position relative to Thor’s Hammer – a shot I’ve hoped to get for some time. The spring sun, however, was perfectly positioned behind the head of the hammer, providing for an almost translucent glow to the red rocks of the formation. Definitely worth the frosty night.
