Aborted Hike at Bryce

Today, a warm welcome to new follower's Nina and Paul of Wheeling It. We've been enjoying your blog for a couple weeks now and appreciate you joining ours.

For our first exploration into Bryce Canyon, we thought we would start at the top on the Bristlecone Loop Trail.

We knew there was going to be snow, but it was sooo beautiful.

Mmmm, aren't these trail markers normally about three feet high?

Where did the trail go? Sometimes we could find it, sometimes we had no idea what direction to go. Numerous fallen Bristlecone Pines and drifted snow as deep as 4 feet made it impossible. After frequently falling though the snow, up beyond our knees, we turned back.

I don't know what was up with this Raven. He's a wild bird, but he seemed to like human company or maybe it was the view.
