I have seen so many photos of Bryce Canyon over the years and always thought the canyon was really beautiful. But you know, more often than not, the place sometimes just doesn’t live up to what you have seen in photos (thanks to photoshop). Well… Bryce Canyon is totally the opposite. Photographs just don’t do it any justice. But yes…photos show beautiful scenery but when you visit this place, it will not only show you it’s beauty but it will make you feel the presence of old-time past and will leave you breathless. There is no place like Bryce Canyon!!!
When you visit this place, be prepared to be mesmerized. The Hoodoos, odd-shaped pillars of rock left standing from the forces of erosion, are so beautiful. Hoodoos can be found in other places, but the Bryce Canyon National Park has the largest collection of hoodoos in the world.
The Bryce Amphitheater area is the most visited part of the park since it has very convenient access and contains many of the most famous formations. My family spent few hours in this area and we wish we had more time to explore. But we did the most of our time.
There are few major viewpoints in the Bryce Amphitheater; Sunrise Point, Sunset Point, Inspiration Point, and Bryce Point and each one provides spectacular views out over the Bryce Amphitheater. There is the Rim Trail that follows the edge of the cliff on top of the Bryce Amphitheater. It connects the viewpoints that overlook the amphitheater and it’s an easy walk for everyone, including those with wheelchairs. Of course, there are several trails drop down into the Amphitheater so you can get to see the hoodoos or the other formations up close and personal (these trails are usually harder and not wheelchair accessible). We did a little hike down one trail but since we were press for time, we didn’t go all the way down.
Here are some of the photos that we took. Enjoy…
Bryce Canyon is known more for the hoodoo rock formations than for the arches, however, there are several arches around the park. The best-known arches include the Bryce Natural Bridge. It’s about 9 miles South of the amphitheater. From the right viewpoint, the Bryce Natural Bridge is a beautiful arch which frames a beautiful scene.
Tip: If you are a day trip visitor, arrive early so you have enough time to do some hikes and enjoy the park. I do suggest to stay at least a night to appreciate the beauty of this park.

Happy and safe travels y’all. xoxo
Great photos of Bryce Canyon. Its so huge area and the entire landscape is mesmerizing. I agree that one needs to stay there for a couple of nights to admire it fully.
My son also likes to explore and hike around mountains. I am glad this trail seems to be kid-friendly. Great place and nice article.
I could only say wow, wow and wow! 😀 Beautiful photos…very postcar-worthy! Makes me just love nature more!
Ohh stunning place and amazing photos. Thanks for sharing this.
I love Bryce Canyon! It is easely one of my favorite national parks. And it’s even better when you hike to the bottom of the canyon. So beautiful!

It’s one of the best, definitely:) STUNNING!!!
Oh my gosh those photos are so good. There really are so many beautiful places in the U.S that I’ve yet to explore. Definite one for the list.
Thanks to hubby for taking the photos… we have the drone and should have been really cool to take video; it’s a no flying zone though..booooo…. But he still got good photos though:)
Thank you…. and YES…. USA actually has a lot to offer:)
The Hoodoos look beautiful and your images of Bryce Amphitheater in the winter is incredible. It looks like a fabulous place to visit, Although I would probably visit in the summer.
It’s really extraordinary… Geological Wonder it is!!!
Bryce Canyon is simply breathtaking.Your pictures bring alive the beauty of the place with stunning effect. I can understand that to actually experience the place in person would be something on a different level altogether. I am sure it cannot be captured in words or picture and is something beyond the frontiers of imagination.
Thank you for dropping by!!! Truly… a place where “to see is to believe”:) The Hoodoos formations are UNREAL!!!
We were in Bryce Canyon in 2012. Like you, we were mesmerized. Too bad we didn’t walk any closer to them like you did. the pictures up close are as mesmerizing as those from a distance!
