We tried to skin along the Rim Trail but coverage wasn't that great, so we stashed the skis, changed boots and took the trail down in the canyon from Sunset to Sunrise. Guess it was only about 3 miles, but the views of hoodoos with snow was just breath-taking!
rain showers, so saw single/double rainbows
Went here a few times, the first on a road trip from Phoenix to Seattle in the summer of 2003.
Yes, visited twice and would go back again if I have the opportunity. I remember second time it was kind of a sad trip - but the photos were absolutely amazing! My daughter was taking a photography class at the time and she did some amazing work here!
Great weather, great vistas. Views that I would never grow tired to at.
April is a great time of the year to hike this park. Usually can have warm weather and still see patches of snow. Peek-a-Boo loop is amazing, can't put the camera away.
like all of the Southwest of the US.
So red! Visited in July 2008. It was hot, but the trails offered such awesome hoodoo views I forgot about the heat.
Did a 3-day backpack under the rim in April-May of a high snow year -- snow coverage much of the way.
My sense of scale got really distorted from the hoodoos on the Fairyland Loop: I mistook a jack rabbit for a mule deer. :D On a later trip, I really like the Hat Shop. I guess this park is about as far east as the bristlecone pines go. There are a few in the park.
Walked for wonderful hours with my family as a teenager; still remember the beautiful colors and formations
I think the hoodoos look like Aunt Jemima syrup bottles....
Plenty of snow on the trails, made for a winter wonderland!
Awesome formations you'll see nowhere else (ok, except a few other places in Utah). If you're a hard hiker you can see 80-90% of the main park (northern half) in one day.
So much snow! I didn't expect there to be five feet of snow at Bryce in March! We didn't do to much because we didn't have snowshoes and plus it was very cold and windy. Bummer....
Wonderful place! Nice sunny day. Snow was melting during our hike and the trail became very muddy.
Been to Bryce NP a few times now. This is such a beautiful and great national park.
My son, Curtis (cdoiron on SP) and I hiked the Queen's Garden Trail into the canyon. Very early morning, but there were still a ton of visitors.
We did the Navajo/ queens loop, there were a lot of people there, more than I like, I think Ill go back in the winter...
Amazing country we live in.
