  • Stand there for a while and see the changing colors as the sun shines on the hoodoos. Amazing and really hard to describe. It must be experienced.  more »

  • The Amphitheatre is a featured highlight in Bryce Canyon National Park. Conveniently located near The Lodge, this is where visitors come to see the outstanding landscape views and endless stacks of hoodoo land formations for which the national park is known for. The Rim Trail is a great way to enjoy the Amphitheatre. Particularly impressive viewpoints are found at Sunrise, Sunset, Inspiration and Bryce Points, where you can peer deep into the area, taking in outstanding views of hoodoos, other interesting land formations, Douglas Firs and hiking trails. Views into the distance are rewarding as well We were lucky to visit in early April while there remained a thin layer of snow at the Bryce Amphitheatre, giving way to many memorable photographs from the Rim viewpoints. For those interested, you can also descend into the Bryce Amphitheatre and enjoy the whimsical trails through the hoodoo forest area found along the Navajo & Queen's Garden Trails. These two dandies link up within the Amphitheatre and form one of the very best hikes we have taken in the States over the year. Seeing the hoodoos up close and personally is a fantastic experience, regardless of your interest in geology. These unique land formations are beautiful. This is probably one of the very best spots in the world to see hoodoos. Overall, we very much enjoyed our time around the Amphitheatre in Bryce Canyon National Park. This is one of those 'WOW' places that you will eagerly want to return to at some point in your future travels.
