A fairy tale based on a true story =)
Their only compass was their heart.
After having journeyed to a Canyon so Grand, where even the Soul could wash clean in its infinite depth; After having been enchanted by the land where the magical antelope once roamed; And after having witnessed the biggest horseshoe that could ever exist…
They finally drove off in search of the land where castles still rise: The Kingdom of Bryce
The day they made their way toward Bryce, a Sleeping Red Beauty pulled them to a stop. She was a beauty, no doubt, and laid just across a river so black.
“My goodness,” the Goddess gasped, mesmerized by such site.
But night had suddenly fallen, and the Goddess and King were eager to find shelter to lay their heads to rest before a rainstorm crept in.
“Are those? Tipis!” she exclaimed, as they came upon a charming village of gypsies.
“Why, it is! And it is here where we will rest,” said the King.
And they slept to the music of rain…
The following morning, dawn woke the village to the sound of birds. It was a glorious day! The perfect beginning to an epic day.
Off went the Goddess and King, in search of castles, adventure, and more.
Over bridges of earth…
Mountains and trees…
…until they found Hoodoos as far as their eyes could see.
From the tallest of cliffs, they noticed a winding path.
“There,” said the Goddess. “We need to go there.”
And it was the finest decision they made…
…for it was there that the castles laid.
The trail was known to the locals as Peek-A-Boo Loop, and every turn was as magical as the next.
Through tunnels of light. It was amazing, no doubt!
How could such wonderful place exist? they thought as they stood in disbelief.
And it was a place where even the unicorns played…
There was a special pair who walked by in haste.
“Didn’t we walk past you several cliffs away?” they said.
But as they continued to walk, they noticed something so strange. It was the trees.
“What happened to you, Majestic Beings of Light” asked the Goddess to the trees.
And then thunder roared from far away.
“The storm is approaching,” the King said. “We should return to our shelter.”
With both having been so delighted by their adventurous day, they were now ready to rest.
And they rested…
The Kingdom of Bryce had forever stollen their hearts. But with spirits so full, the next morning they were ready to pack.
And they drove happily ever after atop a cosmic river of asphalt.
Until the next adventure.
The End =)
