The view of Thor's Hammer via the Navajo trail is truly amazing. You are so close to this gravity defying rock formation although I had to hug the back wall of the trail a little as height made me slightly squeamish. The entire Navajo Loop is worth the hike as one beautiful red rock vista opens after another.

There's no place like Bryce Canyon! The red and orange sandstone sculptures are natural works of art. Thor's Hammer along the Navajo Trail is one of the iconic rock formations that Bryce is known for, but it's not the best example by a long shot. There is SO much more at Bryce and I highly recommend you get a pair... More

One of the most photographed spots in Bryce. You have to hike about half a mile to reach it, but worth the trip. I recommend doing the entire Navajo Loop as Wall Street is equally spectacular.

Cool formation - like so many in Bryce. Loved this amazing place and be sure to hike the trails - the exceptional views are worth the inclines.

One of the most popular formations along the Navajo Trial. It a big hoodoo along the northern fork of the trail. You'll have to hike a third of the way down the trail for it to be most noticeable.

Ok, so honestly, it's a rock formation, but what I want to advise you not to miss is the amazing vista that this formation sits right in the middle of!

In my opinion Bryce Canyon in Utah is one of the most amazing places in US and on the Earth with unreal/ un-Earthy breath taken experience. No words can describe it, you need to experience it. We hiked Queens Gardens, Navajo Loop, Picaboo Loop, and rim. Thor's Hammer is one of the many most impressive formations and the part of... More

Another wonderful vista to stop, admire and photograph!!! The sun created wonderful colors on this special hoodoo as we watched it during our time there.

You can get more up close and personal from the Navajo Trail or you can view it from the rim (I posted a pic with a view from the rim). This is nice for the immobile who can't do the trails. We saw a baby hammer on our way down the Queen's Trail thinking it was Thor's hammer. We thought... More
