I will not review all the different stop offs in Bryce, you need to stop at all of them, will take around 3 hours , well worth it, Thor’s hammer is so fascinating and how the weathering has formed it

Got to see this up close when hiking the navajo loop. Pictures do not capture the cool factor that this rock has.

Can't believe this is perched like this. Thor's hammer was beautiful. We saw it from the Sunrise/Sunset Loop trail. The trail that we took to see it was a little challenging but worth the trip. There is so much to see in Bryce!

Thor’s Hammer stands in the middle of the amphitheater and serves as a reference point to the area. It’s amazing to see.

You can get to this landmark real easy. Just a bit down the trail and you can have a close up picture with this in the background. Pretty cool to see up close and the trail leading up to it is just as great.

This is quite the unique structure. You sure do want to check this out while in Bryce Canyon. Even Thor would appreciate this.

If you start on the Navajo Trail you will see Thor’s Hammer very quickly. If this is all you want to see, you can turn around and go back with ease. I recommend that you keep going and combine the Navajo Trail and the Queen’s...More

Thor's hammer was another stunner after hiking the Queen's Garden Trail. How the rocks balance amongst themselves can be a topic of conversation for days.
