See it in the Snow

If you get the chance, visit Bryce Canyon in the snow, the colours are stunning. Very easy attraction to visit you can drive to all the lookouts so great for unfit people too.

This is a neat feature and any photographer can capture some amazing pictures of it in the foreground with the awesome distant pinnacles in the background. Gives a person perspective of the grandeur of Bryce.

Sunset at Bryce Canyon national Park is seen well at the Thor's Hammer, specially when the place is mildly covered with snow.

This was our first trip to Bryce and we will be back to spend a week. You need some time to do the hikes, and if there in winter bring serious winter clothes.. we were a bit unprepared for the wind chill!

Thor's Hammer is a striking and distinctive feature that stands out prominently against the backdrop of other hoodoos in Bryce Canyon National Park. Impressive rock formation.

It can be seen from a hike or from the Rim Trail at Sunset Point ... You will need to know what you are looking for as it it surrounded by other hoodoos ... Impressive

Included was Brice National Park, and I must say that as a Professional Photographer, I was very impressed... Although we spent three days here, a professional could spend many more just getting the right angle on things and... More

This rock formation is hard to miss when hiking the Navajo Trail. It is very large and you will wonder how it was formed and how it is still standing upright.
