I took a little side trip, wanting to see for myself what “high-season” in some of the national parks looked like, so that I might better speak about it with my students.  It lived up to what I had expected:  too much vehicle traffic for my liking, thousands of people experiencing nature through phone screens, and enough whining and complaining in the first 15 minutes that I was there, that I had to get out.

A few photos were snapped, talking points for my classes.  I was in Bryce Canyon National Park for less than 30 minutes.  The view from Sunrise Point:

beautiful, no doubt

looks so nice

public lands managers have tough jobs

oodles and oodles of humans are all around me

theme park? amusement park?
