Last evening we said goodbye to Bryce Canyon from a superb vantage point that gave us the best overview of this unique place.
After a very cold night in the RV we drove east to the village of Cannonville and then south on an 80 km long gravel road along Cottonwood Canyon.
This road provided many exciting landscapes full of wild geology from ancient cataclysmic events.
At some point we explored a very narrow and beautiful canyon ...
... that we named Butterfly Canyon.
This piece of natural art was to be found on one of the rock faces in the canyon. It looked like a flat fossil of a giant reptiles.
We eventually made it to an asphalt road again and reached the town of Page in northernmost Arizona.
Just 8 km south of Page we checked out the mighty Colorado River doing a very elegant horseshoe bend. A grand view of the river that we will see again later this week in the Grand Canyon.
