Another beautiful site in a beautiful canyon

Spend time soaking in the awesome work of nature and put the camera down. This is another place to just soak in the beauty of it all.

The car drive to Zion Nat. Park was 30-40mins away. The disadvantage of living here was not being able to see the sunrise/sunset within the park.

Ponderosa Canyon is a canyon and an overlook within Bryce Canyon National Park along the southern portion of the scenic drive.

Purpose built car park blocks the view as you drive past on the road but take a little time to get out of the car and up to the balcony and you will be rewarded with some beautiful views.
