Day 5 of our 10-day swing through northern AZ and southern UT found us at Bryce Canyon. We were staying in a B&B in the tiny town of Tropic after 3 nights of camping in the rain. The warm dry bed and a real shower had been most welcome. The inn keeper served a fine breakfast along with homemade granola and some apple slices for the trail.

We'd done Fairlyland a few years back, but you can't get enough of this place. There were still some parking spots at the trailhead and the sky was clear for a change. We dropped off the rim into the land of fanciful hoodoos, each of our cameras racing to see who'd kill their battery first. With all the stopping to take pictures, the pace was relaxed -- almost Tibberish. But Fairlyland is feast for the senses, not some fast food drive through kind of a hike.

We topped back out onto the Rim and took the trail towards our truck. The whole concept of a rim trail would seem to imply level. Not so much if you do Fairlyland clockwise. A storm was making noise off in the distance so we tried to make some time along the Rim, pausing only for the best spots for photos. The storm gave up before reaching us and we celebrated with granola and apple slices back at the trailhead.

Fairlyland never disappoints.
