Before getting to this weeks desktop, there's a couple of things I wanted to remind you about.  First, the updates are shifted a few days the next couple of weeks and will be back on track soon.  Second, the previous weeks wallpaper is always still available by clicking the preview to the left found on this page. Enjoy!

Above is this weeks free desktop.  From southern Utah, back to a park I've featured here several times before, Bryce Canyon National Park.  For those unfamiliar with Bryce Canyon, the main feature of the park is erosion shaped pillars of colorful limestones, sandstones, and mudstones called hoodoos.  There is a centrally located road running through the park and it offers many varying views from many easily accessible overlooks.  For more enjoyment, the Bryce Amphitheater section has several side roads to some of the most magnificent formations, which leads into this weeks shot.  The picture featured this week was taken June 2007 while walking the Rim Trail between Sunset Point and Inspiration Point in the Bryce Amphitheater.  I'm not 100% sure, but I believe the formation here is Silent City.  With the staggering, expansive views of the surrounding mountains and plateaus (it is possible on clear days to see over 100 miles from some points) from some of the overlooks and close to 50 miles of excellent hiking trails which take you into the heart of the park, thus enabling a close up experience well worth the effort required tackling the terrain, this park offers both excellent hiking and sightseeing opportunities.  But a word of warning before you head out, the elevation here is 7000 to 9000ft with most trails ending with you coming back up out of a canyon, not the easiest thing if you're one not use to the elevation (I speak from personal experience here folks (; ).  Caution should be exercised here, and with that said, go have some fun!  Bryce Canyon is a park which can offer extended opportunities for many days of exploring, or if you wish, you can still have rewarding experience in just a single, wonderful day.
