Mainly did the trails in the amphitheater, but also some off-trail climbing.
Tried to ski the rim but it got muddy. Ended up hiking through, stunning!
Can't escape the crowds in October. Finally did the Fairyland Loop Trail. Maybe someday I'll get back to hike under the rim trail.
Many great hikes in Bryce Canyon. Still need to do the long backpacking trail under the rim. Other than that I've been on all the trails! One of Utah's greatest treasures!
Amazed and amused. Great place.
Was, however, disappointed to find out it isn't actually a canyon; it's a series of wind eroded amphitheaters. The rangers refused to give me my money back based on false advertising.... We need to change it's name to "Bryce Wind Eroded Amphitheaters". I'm writing my congressman!
This is truly a very unique place. Everything in this canyon is amazing.
The shoulder seasons around Y.N.P. usually dictates that I take off for southern Utah to get away from the snow for awhile. Hence a visit to Bryce Canyon is usually in the offing on the way to the Henry Mountains and surrounding lands. Love this colorful park!
This park is real wonder, incredible work of nature!
My third trip to Bryce Canyon didn't disappoint. The orange colors of all the rocks, hoodoos and spires will put you in awe! This Nat'l Park isn't too large, but driving along its rim and hiking through its amphitheaters of color will leave you speechless. Every turn in the trail/road will find another great picture taking opportunity. Go there NOW, seriously!
Very striking landscape. The Orange,red and brown tones are gorgeous with a deep blue sky as a backdrop.
The first two times I came here it was snowing (in late May and early July), so we only walked along the overlooks. The third time was the charm, as we were finally able to do an awesome hike combining sections of the Navajo, Peakaboo, and Queens Garden trails in one big loop hike. Despite a little hail, the cooler temperatures were perfect, and the kids (8-year old & 4-year old hiked, and 1-year old rode in backpack) loved all of the little tunnels and hoodoos.
Put good miles on all over the park. Wallstreet is a classic!
Hiked a couple of trails back in the early 90s
with my dad and brother...
parks in North America. Did the Peek-a-boo trail and had a terrific time. The colours and formations are astonishing
Hiked down through the unfortunately crowded, but still amazing Navajo/Queen Mary Loop to the floor of the canyon. Went out on the Fairyland Loop, visited Tower Bridge, walked along the Rim Trail, and made it down to Rainbow Point -- still have WAY more hiking to do here, and hope to do some more ambitious hikes in the future when I have a bit more time!
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
