If you were lucky enough to be in Bryce Canyon National Park on Tuesday, you would have been surrounded by one of the prettiest days of the year, as these photos clearly show.
Sure, it got down into the single digits overnight, but the fresh dump of powder certainly brightened up the red-rock landscape. Marion Littlefield is fortunate enough to live at Bryce year-round, so getting up at 6:30 or so to be in place to capture such scenes isn't that tough.
That first shot is of Thor's Hammer, and in the one below the spire in the background is known as "The Sentinel."
In case you're flexible, the extended forecast is calling for a chance of snow Thursday through Sunday.
