The scenery at Bryce Canyon is some of the most dramatic and unique in the country. At nearly 9000 feet, it's the highest national park in Utah. Fast moving clouds and thunderstorms are a regular occurrence, creating endless photographic possibilities. Even without the drama from above, there is not anything ordinary about this stunning landscape. From time-weathered hoodoos, to colorful rocks and cliffs decorated by stately trees Bryce Canyon meets the gold standard for world-class beauty. Although the park is small, the possibilities for exploration are nearly endless, with meadows teaming with wildlife, hidden and unexplored vistas, and rarely seen canyons.

Summer time usually brings dramatic skies to the park.
