We saw more grandeur and beauty than you can imagine on our visit to Bryce Canyon. The best way to see this beautiful canyon is up close and personal from the back of a horse. Like an exciting trip back through the eons of time, we enjoyed a close-up look at beautiful rock formations thousands of years in the making. Formations on which wind & rain are forever working their handicraft of sculpture add further to that illusion of timelessness you can see all of Bryce’s breathtaking beauty from horseback – man’s oldest (and most reliable) mode of transportation! Many people who riding the trails of Bryce with us have never been on horseback before! Linda was in her element.
We joined the 1/2 day trip which lasted approximately 3 1/2 hours and took a group of us right into the heart of Bryce Canyon. We experienced the beauty up close, including such views as the Wall of Windows, The Chessmen, Silent City, and the Bristle Cone Pine Trees.
The Ice Cave is located on the road behind the Duck Creek Visitor Center. This cave is small with only one chamber, but it has snow and icicles in it all year round. The cave is wet and slippery. Climbing into the cave takes careful descent by rope.
