|A View of Red Canyon
I reached Bryce Canyon National Park mid-day, stopped at the lodge (rustic charm!), went past a Utah Prairie Dog town (cute little critters!), relished the breathtaking views of Bryce Canyon's popular "Amphitheater" region from Sunrise and Sunset points, watched the orientation film at the visitor center (poor audio/visual quality), picked up some camping supplies, and tried getting internet at all 3 of the park's wifi points (to no avail!). I saw a group of 3 Pronghorn Antelope (cool!) and more stunning views from Fairyland Point, and then I set up camp at Sunset Campground (site 290 - love it!) with my new tablecloth for the picnic table (first time decorating a campsite, lol). There was leftover chopped up, ready-to-go wood at the campsite when I got there, which proved itself useful for making a fire to cook my chili over. Two playful mule deer came through back behind my tent! I journaled to the smell of campfire and kept warm with my hoodie - it was perfect :) After sun down it gets cold up at 8,000 feet - must have been about 50 degrees - thermals, extra padded socks and footie pajamas kept me warm :)
