Bryce Canyon – North America – US

Location: The Bryce Canyon Amphitheatre is one of the most convenient places to visit in the area. It is located southwest of the North Campground and park visitor center. The Sunset Campground is also located within an easy walk towards the west while the General store and Bryce Lodge is located right near the canyon rim above the amphitheatre itself.

The canyon is named after Ebenezer Bryce, a Mormon settler who had a homestead at the mouth of the canyon. The settler famously called the canyon a “…hell of a place to lose a cow” and for good reason given the vast expanse.

Why should you visit Bryce Canyon : The giant natural amphitheatre was created through erosion. It became a United States National Monument in 1923. The erosion also produced the Pink Cliffs which run in the north south direction of the national park. Millions of tourists visit the Amphitheatre to view the expansive area from its numerous viewpoints such as Sunrise Point, Sunset Point and Bryce Point.

Shutterbugs can definitely get a lot of photo opportunities in the Canyon. Each of the vistas provides spectacular views over Bryce Amphitheatre. The park is composed of multiple amphitheatres and filled with thousands of rock formations or hoodoos.

Best Things to Do in Bryce Canyon: Make sure that you have front row seat during sunrise and sunset. That is when the quality of light is the richest. Watch in awe as the whole park bursts in a kaleidoscope of colors. It doesn’t really matter which rock you stand on. You will get good photos either way.

With the way hoodoos look like it isn’t surprising why the ancient Indians though that they were people who had been frozen into rock by evil spirits. The arches, fins, spires and canyons are not the only attraction. The vivid orange, blue, yellow and red tints given off by the canyon leave, whoever sees it in awe. You can use the shuttle system to get to the park. Head to the camp grounds to claim your spot and wake up the next day to position yourself for a photography session.

Best Times to Visit Bryce Canyon: Most people visit the Bryce Amphitheatre in summer from early June to mid August. You can also visit it any other time of the year if you want to avoid the crowds. However, spring and fall are the best times to visit. The summer months have high temperatures well above 100 degrees Fahrenheit so it’s best that you plan any hiking trips for earlier in the day.

Bryce Canyon Neighborhoods & Towns : Bryce Canyon is located about 15 miles east of the city of Panguitch Utah. Most tourists and travelers choose to stay in any of its motels while visiting the place.

Places You must see in Bryce Canyon:

  1. Sunrise Point. Located near the Bryce Canyon Lodge, Sunrise Point provides an inspiring view of the canyon amphitheatre, with light best at (surprise!) sunrise.
  2. Sunset Point. Located a short hike from Sunrise Point along the Rim Trail, and also accessible by car, Sunset Point offers an alternative view of the canyon amphitheatre with best light occurring at sunset.
  3. Inspiration Point. Another viewpoint accessible by car or from the Rim Trail, Inspiration View’s name is well-deserved. Photography from this overlook is best at sunset.
