No, we sure didn't, we were on a day trip from Zion to Bryce Canyon. I bet that is a wonderful time to horseback through this area, lots to see for sure.

They really look spectacular, I wonder why they haven't toppled yet.

Bob how about you and me go up an lean on a few of those and see if we can push them over the cliff. A few beers and anything is possible.

Wonderful sight, Bob! It does make you wonder how they continue to stand all these years. Amazing.

I think we had a CPL on for that photo, brought out the blue maybe too much.

they are certainly top heavy, I would imagine an earthquake of size would weaken them a bit.

Does look like a CPL shot, but I don't think it's too much -- very nice effect to balance against the amazing red rocks. Great color and texture in this shot. Must be getting chilly up there at Bryce!
