We arrived Bryce Canyon in early May and were greeted with a snow fall. Unfortunately with the snow came clouds and fog which was disappointing and you couldn't see the canyon - shortly after dinner the snow stopped, the clouds lifted and we were greeted with some amazing scenery. Would suggest you drive to the end of the road and... More

Such a beautiful place. Visit Bryce by driving to the end of the canyon and stopping on the way back. All the parking spots are on the right. Sunrise Point is therefore near the end of the visit so reserve enough energy for the end of the day!

Nice place pre-dawn and to see sun come up. Photos with sun at a low angle just after sun rise looked much better Vs. later in AM when sun was higher in sky and landscape looked flat.

An amazing view and a must stop place.. If I had the time I would do the Rim walk to the first stops rather than drive from stop to stop..

Well I was determined to get up for sunrise. I was the only one there in April at 5:54am. I felt in top of the world up there.

This was our first view of the park and it was spectacular. We went back the next morning but I prefer it later in the day. At that time it is also easier to take pictures. It is difficult to describe the landscape and the colors. Guess you will just have to come and see for yourself.

One of the best sunrises in the world. Andddddd yes I went to Bryce Point the following morning. If you only have one sunrise . . Be at sunrise point 15 minutes before sunrise. Extra credit: Get your sunrise pics, but then go into the belly if the canyon via the queens garden trail 10 feet away. You will be... More

I usually have taken pictures from Sunset Point but this time we went over to Sunrise and it was just as amazing and such a great view of the canyon. Take the time to take the short walk to see the different perspective.

As this is the first viewpoint you'll arrive at after entering the Park, it is VERY busy. In addition, this is the same access road that the Park Store is on and it is unbelievable how many cars and people will be there at any one time. Given all of that, this is a great view point to visit and... More
