Photographer's Note

I agree, it is by far easier coming down than going up again but once you started one of these hikes nobody can actually stop you anymore and you want to see it all, you wonder how it looks around the corner and you say to yourself “another ten minutes” and sooner than you think you are involved in a big hike with maybe no water and not the best shoes either but as a tourist you forget all the warnings, what you have read when you were at home sitting in your living room going through the travel guides page after page, making little notes, you read about snake bites, about flood warnings, about carrying around enough water, sun protector, a good jacket for cold nights (it was in the car) :)))) and I probably ended up with some blisters, the ones that never let you in your shoes again once you get out of them. Ouch. Yes I am one of THESE … I out myself … LOL.

Just some weeks after me, my boss was standing in the same park and he sent me an email probably checking if I was not sitting at the Lake of Zuerich having a good time (Christoph ich an gschaffet …) and he wrote to me that my travel guide was really great and that they would follow my notes that I had made in my guide - and I thought what notes? I always mark things but not necessarily meaning that I had ever been there … I still have my job but I am not sure what he thinks about my taste (I also underlined restaurants I wanted to eat in etc. etc.). So much about exchanging books ;)))

Bryce Canyon like many other parks have wonderful hikes for all ages I guess and I forgot the name of my trail but the park brochures help you out. We had a great time on this trail by the way, a pleasant evening with temperatures just right, unforgettable.
