Photographer's Note

Sunny frosty morning in Bryce Canyon, UT. Elevation more then 2400 m.

...the surface breaks off almost perpendicularly to a depth of several hundred feet — seems, indeed, as though the bottom had dropped out and left rocks standing in all shapes and forms as lone Sentinels over the grotesque and picturesque scene. There are thousands of red, white, purple and vermillion colored rocks, of all sizes, resembling Sentinels on the Walls of Castles; monks and priests with their robes, attendants, cathedrals, and congregations. There are deep caverns and rooms resembling ruins of prisons, Castles, Churches, with their guarded walls, battlements, spires and steeples, niches and recesses, presenting the wildest and the most wonderful scene that the eye of man ever beheld, in fact, it is one of the wonders of the world.
T. C. Bailey, Description of Bryce Canyon, 1876
