    Hike - this place is best seen from deep within. Spring was a great time to go - no crowds, and the snow in the canyon made it even more beautiful!

    Here, you can see the horizontal layers that make up the stone face of Bryce Canyon. It´s soft sandstone that easily weathers away. Sometimes, hard layers on top will protect the stone underneath.

    Here you can see harder layers protecting the softer stone underneath. The result are 'hats' reminding me of a picture of Davy Crockett!

    You can wake up real early and catch the sunrise at Sunrise Point. Just up the road is Sunset point if your not a morning person.

    The trailhead is rather unique in that it begins with a series of switchbacks that decsend deep into a crack in the earth. it is here, at the bottom that you then enter the famous wall street.

    Be sure you build in a sunset or sunrise time for getting photos. The colors are stupendous during that time.

    From Sunrise Point, you can look across the breaks towards Boat Mesa (northern part of the park), Sinking Ship, and the Aquarius Plateau (10,000 ft [3,048 m]).

    A short walk from Sunrise point is Sunset point. It faces the opposite direction and best catches the sunset.

    This is the first lookout when you enter the park. It is so named because its at an angle to best catch the rising sun.

    Wall of windows

    by lazyman_1 Written Dec 5, 2006

    The wall of windows is a rather unique looking terrace of cave like structures that resemble windows in the face of the rock. You can best view the windows from Bryce point.
