Weekly Photo Challenge: Fleeting

Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah

An 8 mile hike through the burnt red amphitheater of Bryce Canyon National Park feels endless.  Looping under vigilant arches, passing between the silhouettes of those iconic eroded pillars, the hoodoos, each step feels both identical to and distinctive from the step before.  Like wrinkles on a human face, the cracks and slides on each spire are evidence of a life well-weathered, of surviving the elements.  It’s easy to forget, staring 2,000 feet up at the them, that the existence of Bryce is as fleeting – geologically – as our own brief glimpse.
