Whenever we are in Utah and visiting those wonderful National Parks like Arches, Bryce Canyon, Capitol Reef, Canyonlands and Zion we love to drive along Highway 12 that connects Capitol Reef (photo above) and Bryce Canyon. It is one of the most scenic highways I know, not very busy (at least not in winter when it is often covered with snow) and fittingly called a "scenic byway". It goes without saying that we drove along it when we were in Utah over winter break.
We had spent the day before in Capitol Reef, stayed in a hotel close by and left quite early in the morning. It was very cold (13 F), and there was almost no one else on the road. The winter morning we experienced here was fantastic.
The sun had just risen, but many clouds blocked its light down to planet Earth. The light, though, was interesting and gave the morning a certain magic.
We saw foot prints in the snow, left by the wildlife who crossed here during the night.
Where is the fence, you ask? Look no further.
Not a permanent fence, though. It's only here as long as the snow is.
But that might still be a few months.
I'm linking up to Theresa's "Good Fences" - it's always a pleasure to be in the company of other fence lovers.
