My junk

Here are a bunch of pictures from the vacation we took to Bryce Canyon, Zion Canyon, Red Canyon, Valley of Fire, ...

So we get up early to see the sunrise at Bryce Canyon.
Well, we got there plenty early. 

Anyway, here is a picture of "Limber Tree" from Sunrise Point. 
Note how it still hangs on even though the ground has eroded away from its roots:


Here is a (shakey) shot of Venus a while before sunrise:


The "Amphitheatre" at dawn:


The sun is on its way:


Here comes the sun...:

Buds?  Or just tolerating each other?




We stopped to visit and feed the animals.  First, the elk:













The buffalo decided it was lunch time too:
