On May 23, we stopped by Bryce Canyon on our way to Escalante. I wanted to do a hike that I had not yet done and which might also be somewhat less crowded, so I picked the Fairyland Loop Trail. My family wasn't really up for doing the loop though, so we did it as an out and back. I hiked with my wife and daughter for about 1.5 miles and then told my daughter that I was going to see what was "up around the next corner".

Well, it was awesome, so I continued up to the next corner, and the next, and the next, and so on until I had gone about 3.75 miles. I turned back and (eventually) rejoined them.

When I got back to the trailhead, I hiked a bit of the rim trail in the other direction to see what it was like. It's not nearly so awesome, though there were occasional views of the colorful canyon through the trees. I only did a little bit of it in the CCW direction, so cannot say what it's like further on.

I'd like to do the complete loop sometime since the section I did was really quite stunning.
