This was my view yesterday morning. We pulled into Bryce Canyon the day before felt that weather was getting worse and decided after a few nights in the cold it was worth getting a cheap room. And when the temperature dropped to less than 5 degrees with windchill we were happy we did so. Then with fresh snow on the ground and a bitter cold wind to blow away the previous day's clouds I was greeted with a beautiful sunrise all to myself. #thelongesthello #utah #visitutah #brycecanyon #snow
