Stunning view, looking down at the hoodoos and the changing colors of the landscape. This is a high elevation at 9000 feet. Breathing can be a little difficult, particularly if it is cold. Take it slow and be sure to take your time at the...More

It is a bit of a drive but worth it. At almost 9,000 feet, I definitely felt the change in the elevation. The view was fantastic.

This is yet another of the beautiful overlooks to be seen at Bryce Canyon NP. I recommend stopping at all of them if you have the time.

Ponderosa Canyon is one of the stops along the 18 mile Bryce Canyon scenic drive and the views are spectacular as the ground drops steeply and is surrounded by a band of hoodoos at either side, and wooded hillsides beyond.
