Day 3 of vacation was one I thought wouldn't happen at all. Forecasts all called for severe thunderstorms that day, but being that all I saw were threatening clouds and no rain after breakfast, I figured I could at least take a short walk over to Echo Lake... if it rained, I was close enough to run back, so why not? By the time I get to Echo Lake, I start seeing the sun breaking through the clouds a bit. So being that the case, I figured what the hell? Kept on going and hiked right along up the Bryce path (quite the upward hike) to Cathedral Ledge to catch some views. And what views I did see. Thanks to those threatening clouds, I was treated to an outstanding sky to backdrop my shots... another great vacation day in the books.
