With a title like that, you might think there would be photos of Bryce Canyon in this blog post.
This holiday has been planned for a veeeerrrrryyyy long time. So 24hrs later, we still cannot work out, how on earth we did not realise we would be visiting Bryce Canyon in the SNOW! As we were driving here yesterday the snow on the tops of the mountains became snow at the base of the mountains, and then became snow… um… right beside the car. Oh hello – snow as far as the eye can see. As we reached Bryce Canyon City (please note this is a very liberal use of the word city – i.e. 4 buildings), the snow was falling heavily around us. I may have said, “I’m scared” a few times. A mother who doesn’t like to concern her children?
Anyway, this is all part of the adventure, so here we are in sunny Bryce Canyon. Can we see the canyon through the snow? No. Is anything open? No – closed for the winter. Are the kids LOVING this like crazy? Yes
There is one lodge open and it sells petrol, groceries, gloves, ski hire, knick knacks and has a diner attached. The diner offers all sorts of steak and chips. Lucky I’m a chip eating vegetarian The kids have spent hours trawling through the knick knacks and so far we have a pair of ski goggles, magnetic dolls house, and 4 stuffed kitten toys.
All of that aside, we have never seen real snow falling from the sky. Let alone snow falling from the sky for 24hrs straight. So it is a fantastic experience.

We took a very slow drive up the snow-covered road to see if Bryce Canyon was visible at all. No.
Snow man time. Or, a carefully constructed mound of snow with a face and arms
