I did a loop, but not what was planned. Hiked down the Wall Street part of the Navajo Loop, took the western part of the Peek a Boo loop, became disgusted with the copious amounts of foul smelling horse urine and piles, and piles, and piles of manure, and so bailed on the remainder of the loop, and hiked up to Bryce Point. Bryce Point was closed for improvements, so I hiked around it to observe the letter, but not the spirit of the closure, and I then took the rim trail back to the trailhead. I ended up basically poaching the closed section of the Rim Trail, but who knew? I enjoyed this part of the hike best.

From 2010 to today, visitation is up dramatically, and many people are walking below the rim. Solitude, peace and quiet are no longer found in summer, at Bryce. Maybe I got lucky 6 years ago? My experience was very different, and though still scenic, I am not eager to run right back here. That said, I enjoyed my time here.
