018: Another view of the Amphitheater
One of the most impressive natural must-see scenes can be found in Bryce Canyon. Although not really a canyon, but a collection of amphiteaters on the eastern slope of the Pauntsaugunt Plateau, it provides several locations for amazing scenic of the amphiteaters. These amphitheaters are composed of a large number of multi-colored rock pinnacles, the so-called hoodoos. They are the silent witnesses of long-term exposure to high and low temperatures and to wind. At the time of my visit, in May, there was still some snow left in shadowy locations, out of reach from sunlight. It was quite cold when walking in the shadow and being exposed to wind. In contrats, walking in the sun was a real pleasure, while we got amazed by the beautiful light combinations of the hoodoos. It was as these hoodoos were the motionless spectators of a long-lasting spectacular event, a natural wonder.
