Bryce Canyon Camping Trip

We got back from camping at Bryce Canyon National Park a few days ago. The last load is in the washing machine as I type this post. I knew from word of mouth that we would be impressed by the beauty that Bryce offers. I had no idea just how beautiful, how jaw dropping amazing that little patch of Earth really was.

There are so many trees that have been struck by lightning, they are really kind of pretty.
At one point, we came across this raven. We weren't sure if he was injured, but he just sat there, allowing people to come really close to him. He was very regal.

We took many hikes, one lead us to this beautiful waterfall.
Our favorite hike was 4 miles long, it went down into the canyon, and then back up. We discovered several tunnels in the rock that were made for the trail. They were nice and shady!
The back up part was the most difficult part. It was also the best part. We climbed up through a narrow canyon/crevice. This is just before we got to the narrow canyon. It is actually right behind the center tree.

 The next picture is taken about 3/4 of the way up, looking back down.
As a family, we have decided that we want to visit more National Parks. What park would you recommend?
