Bryce Morning

Peek-a-boo Trail— One of the highlights of our visit to Bryce Canyon National Park was a burro ride down the Peek-a-boo Trail. When we arrived to get set-up for the ride, it was 38ºF! Unlike the previous day, when there were some snow flurries, this morning was crisp, clear and dry. There were about 10 riders for this 5-hour unforgettable tour. If you have ever ridden a burro, you know what to expect. They are stubborn animals who love to hug the outside edge of any trail. At times, I had no other choice but look the other way and pray the burro knew what it was doing. I guess it did since I’ve lived to tell the story. Because of the nature of this ride, I did not have the luxury to carry a tripod and plan my shots. This was a hand-held photo taken while riding my burro. Our guide briefly stopped at this point for us to appreciate the landscape and magnificent light in the early morning. I wasted no time.
