Yesterday even though we spent the entire day at Bryce, there was one hike we didn't get to. So, this morning before we headed to Kodachrome Basin State Park, we stopped and did the Mossy Cave hike at Bryce. Technically this hike is not inside the park proper, but it is part of Bryce Canyon.
The hike was really resplendent (yes, I am using a thesaurus. I got tired of using beautiful, gorgeous and stunning for everything). It moved along the Tropic Ditch River which is fed by the Tropic Ditch waterfall. This was a short hike that led to the, yep you guessed it, the Mossy Cave. The cave was full of moss. It was ok, I guess. I felt it was more of an overhang and less of a cave, but that's just me, I guess. I was more into the waterfall. The hike was really lovely though and we got a great photo of Mark and I thanks to a nice guy from Idaho. We spent about an hour at this location before heading on.

Next we decided to take a hike. This was a "Kathy" hike as opposed to most of the other hikes we had been taking being more geared to Mark's skill level. He said he was up for it, so we! went for it. This hike was up on to a ridge, over a bunch of slickrock and promised some great views.
