BBC Video of Bryce Canyon

Here’s an older video from the BBC that covers Bryce Canyon National park. It’s been very well done and offers a great view of the park. It begins with talking about Monument Valley before it transitions over to Bryce Canyon.

It takes some time to explain how Bryce was made over years of erosion and elements, which is very interesting to learn about.

Wikipedia does a great job as well talking about Bryce:

Bryce is distinctive due to geological structures called hoodoos, formed by frost weathering and stream erosion of the river and lake bed sedimentary rocks. The red, orange, and white colors of the rocks provide spectacular views for park visitors. –Wikipedia

Bryce Beckons Your Return

If there’s any picture out there that beckons your return to Bryce, then it ought to be this one. Is it just me or are the time lapse photo’s of iconic places like Bryce just incredible? Maybe it’s because they combine two things that are so intriguing to me, the hoodoos and natural beauty of this world, and the night sky in all of it’s wonder.

Maybe I’m just feeling just a bit nostalgic from when I was a kid and we would sleep outside under the stars on our trampoline. Where we lived there were few street lights and neighbors to stamp out the night sky’s view that was right above us. Maybe it’s memories like these that make a picture like this, a picture that captures the awe inspiring wonder that is the heavens above us, and combines it with the towering art of Bryce Canyon’s hoodoos. Maybe…

Superb Video of Bryce Canyon

You would think it would be easy to find beautiful video’s of Bryce Canyon, but in truth most videos we find have annoying music, shaky camera angles, and frustrating views. Not this one, this video is an award winning video of Bryce Canyon National Park.

There’s something about a well done video like this that amplifies the spring fever to get out of the office and go exploring that much more. It also speaks of that talents that others have to get shots like these. Bryce Canyon is a stunning place, but its a rare thing to have someone portray it in a way that hasn’t been done a million times. That’s what this video certainly does.

Winter In Bryce

There’s something about winter that adds a welcome variety and new feel to a place like Bryce Canyon. When I saw this picture I immediately thought about how you can see something a hundred times, and then mother natures steps in and gives you a view you hadn’t seen before.

It’s variety like this that make places like Bryce Canyon such a wonderful place to visit. No matter how many times you’ve visited it, it can still shock you and show you in a new way her beauty. That’s what snow can do, it gives you a new look, a fresh clean look of something as stunning as the hoodoos of Bryce.

Bryce Canyon Peek-A-Boo Loop

The Peek-A-Boo Loop is one of the best hikes found in Bryce Canyon. The trail-head begins at the Bryce Point, and rapidly descends to the canyon floors. Due to it’s popularity the trail is very easy to follow. The hike itself is a round trip 6 miles and is considered mildly difficult due to the length and elevation change. If you aren’t feeling up to walking it, there are Horse and Mule rides that are available to rent.

The hike is very well worth doing, it puts you right among the red and orange hoodoos. So instead of just viewing them from a distance or vantage point you’re seeing them up-close for yourself.

Incredible Inspiring Video of The Mighty Five – How Was It Made

Would you like to see one of best videos I’ve seen in a long time? It’s only a minute and definitely worth 60 seconds. It highlights the Mighty Five, or the five national parks in Utah. Zion, Bryce, Capital Reef, Canyonlands, and Arches. The quality of this video is very inspiring, although it does make you wish spring was already here. Not only does it highlight the stunning formations of Bryce, but it groups us with our sister parks that all compliment each other so well.

The pictures and videos that people produce each and every day that highlight the stunning beauty of this area, of Bryce Canyon are just getting better and better.

Having said that there is no video, no picture that can beat witnessing an amazing place like Bryce Canyon, than by going here. Getting in your car and driving and then when you get here, get out. Get out of your car and walk around to see what your eyes can see without photo filters, without Photoshop manipulations, without video special effects, get out and see it how it really is.

If you’ve been here before return, come and see a place you haven’t seen before. Or see it in a different light, maybe come during the winter to go snow-shoeing. But if you haven’t been here before then there’s no time like the present to make a plan, and drive.

How Was It Made?

I can nearly guarantee you that your first reaction upon seeing it will be “how on earth was this made?” It’s times like these when maybe for only a few brief moments you’re taken back to a time when the world was much simpler. When everything you saw was new and amazing, and filled with wonder. But as time went by those moments began to be more and more rare, as the mundane and the monotonous aspects of like slowly takes over. You find yourself less and less inspired with that childlike curiosity of “what is that and how was it made?”.

Exploring Bryce

Stumbled on a great video that goes over not only the beauty of Bryce, but some of the history behind it. Showcasing some of the other names it’s been known by over the years. There are so many view points like Inspiration Point that it highlights. The real problem with this video is it makes you want to stop what you’re doing and go for a drive to see them all for yourself.

The video’s not long so take a look.

Sunrise In Brcye

What is it about watching the sun come up, while overlooking a vantage point as striking as Bryce? Is it the fact that most aren’t willing to make the sacrifice of a few hours of sleep to experience it? Is it the contrast of seeing very little due to the darkness, to the moment when the light has finally triumphed? Whatever it is, we should all make the sacrifice to experience it more often.

Incredible Tribute Video of Base Jumper That Died

Daniel Moore is a base jumper who recently died doing what he loved most. This video is a tribute to his life and makes you question many decisions that you’ve made in life. It makes you wonder if you have lived your life to the extent that you should?

Moab is just a hop skip and a jump away from Bryce Canyon. There are many similarities between them, but both offer their own flavor for southern and eastern Utah.

POV Mountain Jump. How’s Your Heart?

If you are of the faint of heart then watching this short GIF is not for you. But for those of you wanting a little taste of something you will more than likely never experience, then this is the next best thing. This begs the question, did that rider know he was going to make it? Or in the air was he like “well I’ve had a good run”?

Who knows, but what I do know is a good POV video of a canyon mountain bike jump is just the thing I needed this morning.
