Magical Places

I have two ( as it is my birthday :) ).

The first is Horseshoe Bend on the Colorado River located near Page, Arizona. First went there when we were staying in Page in September 2001 (just a few days after 9/11) and one of the assistants in a shop mentioned it. It is a short walk from the car park (feels like a very long walk when you have knees that are as f***ed as mine but it is so worth it. We have been there three times now and spent time just sitting at the top looking around and down the 1,000 foot drop. Costco are using a show reel on their 4k TVs at the moment (in the UK anyway) and Horseshoe Bend can be seen on it. It was funny, walked in to Costco and a similar picture was on the screen and I thought "been there" and then it changed and it was "been there too" and another and another. Many of my favourite US places were featured.

My second place is Bryce Canyon, Utah. We have been to this National Park about five times and it never loses its appeal. It is another of those places you can just sit and look and it will change as the sun moves. The first visit was after being in Las Vegas where it was about 100 degrees. We set off in T-Shirt and shorts and by the time we got to Bryce there was snow so we were very appropriately dressed!

Its not only about the place its about getting there and with whom you get there for me more than where it is:D

I did a wonderful hiking/climbing tour to the top of the Dachstein :D

For me climbing and hiking in the mountains is kinda that magic feeling of which you speak chriss :D

It doesnt matter where it is ;) it has to be exhausting :D And then you get this magical moment when you reach the top (of the world how it often feels like ;))
