Bryce Canyon National Park

[Zion] [Grand Canyon – Kanab] [Grand Staircase] [No. 89] [Cedar Breaks] [Hwy 12] [Capitol Reef] [Southeast] [Arches-Canyonlands] [Green River] [Price] [Ultimate Tour]
Bryce Canyon is my favorite National Park. It is easy to see the whole thing and it has some really nice trails that let you get into and feel apart of the canyon.
 

The Dancing Tree

I have photographed this tree for years. The exposed roots tell the story of the eroding canyon, always in the process of being created. The tree sits overlooking the main amphitheater at Bryce.

Thor’s Hammer

Thor’s Hammer is viewed right along the trail that goes down into the main amphitheater. The large rock formations look like they are people, frozen in time.

Main Amphitheater at Bryce

Overlooking the main amphitheater is Thor’s Hammer and the rest of the wonderful formations. Bryce is a fun place because you feel like you are part of the canyon.

Antelope

On the flats just before getting to Bryce, I often see herds of Antelope. These animals are quick and shy, so I always find it a treat when I see them.

Bryce – Zion Trail Rides

I have two favorite commercial activities in southern Utah, the trail ride into Bryce Canyon is one of them. This trip is wonderful. You make ride arrangements in the main lodge at Bryce Canyon.
