Bryce Canyon National Park
Sunset Point  (Click for enlarged view 127K)
It was around noon when we arrived at Bryce Canyon. It's a relatively small national park so we decided to stop at every view points. We made our first stop at the Sunset Point and the view was jaw-dropping. Yes, I knew "hoodoos" before I came. Yet I did not know that with so many of them the scene could be that striking.

Sunrise Point
Sunrise Point is next to Sunset Point and can be reached by a trail. It did not look as amazing as the Sunset Point, or probably just because that we were not recovered from the initial shock yet. Unfortunately we could see neither sunrise nor sunset here. Due to our full-packed schedule, we can only see 12 o'clock sun up here and imagined the sunset..

Inspiration Point  (Click for enlarged view 74K)
Inspiration Point and Sunset Point are probably the most photographed locations in Bryce Canyon. For the National Park hoppers (like us), these two stops are probably the most time-effective choices.

We continued further south of Rainbow Gate to visit other points. In my opinion (as a National Park hopper, I confess), they were not as dramatic as Sunset or Inspiration Points. Maybe because I did not take trails down for better angle, or maybe because of the high-noon sun..

That concluded our journey in Bryce Canyon. We left in a hurry as there was still a long way (and more National Parks) to go..
