Sunrise at Bryce Canyon National Park

Bryce Canyon Inspiration Point Sunrise

Sunrise view from Inspiration Point. Bryce Cayon National Park is located in Southwest Utah. It’s a very beautiful park to visit in winter when the white snow contrasts with the orange hoodoos. Hoodoos are formed from freezing and thawing cycles that erode the rock. Ironically, Bryce Canyon is not even a canyon but is really a series of amphitheaters. The rim drive has many viewpoints to stop at and can be done in a day if you visit and are short on time. A light pollution free area, the milky way is visible from the park, especially during the summer months. The Bryce Canyon Astronomy Festival is typically held in June. In the nearby town of Bryce, Ruby’s Inn offers sleigh rides during the winter months that take you to the edge of the park view spectacular views. Named after Ebenezer Bryce who homesteaded the area in 1874, it was designated a National Monument in 1923 and a National Park in 1928.
