Did Gaudí Visit Bryce Canyon?

This past weekend we got to get out and explore a bit of Southern Utah’s amazing landscapes. One of the places we got to visit was Bryce Canyon.

Believe it or not, growing up in the West, this is one National Park I have never had the pleasure of visiting until this past weekend. We took a little detour from our destination and stopped in to see what it was like. I am so glad we did!

On the way to Bryce Canyon, the rolling hills and valleys are absolutely beautiful in their own right. You would never know that this gem was hiding just beyond them. We pulled into the park and worked our way to Sunrise, the overlook that is popular among visitors. We hiked a little path and came to the edge and this is what I saw. I can’t even believe how gorgeous it was!

We walked to Sunset, another popular overlook, where every few feet the landscape seemed to change. No matter where you looked, you could find new astonishing peaks, valleys and rock formations. You could even hike down to get a different perspective. It was stunning!

Looking out at these spectacular views, I was reminded of our trip to Barcelona a few years ago and couldn’t help but see some similarities between these natural wonders and the gorgeous creations of architect Antoni Gaudí in Spain. Do you see any similarities?

Maybe it’s just me, but I swear I can see some similarities between these buildings and Bryce Canyon. Or maybe it is just my imagination getting the best of me. Either way, I enjoyed spending time seeing the beauty in the landscapes at Bryce Canyon National Park. If you ever find yourself nearby, be sure to make the trip to see it in person because photos do not do it justice!
