Utah’s Bryce Canyon National Park in 10 Fantastic Photos

Although it appears solid and permanent, the landscape in Bryce Canyon National Park is actually constantly moving and changing. Erosion—water and wind—works hard in this mind boggling park. This post features some of my favorite Bryce Canyon photos, serving as a great visual introduction to a park that’s as unique as they come.

Natural Sculptures in Abundance

In Bryce Canyon National Park, one of the most popular national parks in Utah, you’ll find some of the most mesmerizing landscapes you’ll see in your life. Hundreds, if not thousands, of hoodoos—towering rock pillars—fill the natural amphitheaters in the park. The most famous of those amphitheaters is Bryce Amphitheater, which is the park’s top attraction.

You can explore this amazing area on various hiking trails, ranging from easy to strenuous and from short to long. Also, make sure to catch at least one sunrise or sunset. The views from appropriately-named Sunrise and Sunset Point are marvelous. Nearby Bryce Point and Inspiration Point offer equally great vistas.

Visiting Bryce Canyon

This isn’t a particularly large park. Covering about 56 square miles, it’s easily explored in one or two days. I recommend dedicating two days and a night to the park. This will give you plenty of time to do some scenic hikes, enjoy a sunset and sunrise, and drive the 18-mile park road that essentially follows Bryce Canyon’s rim and passes numerous viewpoints.

In terms of accommodation, the park has two campgrounds—North and Sunset Campgrounds—and Bryce Canyon Lodge. All three lie clustered together, just south of the visitor center and near the above-mentioned overlooks.
