Bryce Canyon National Park

Bryce Canyon is named after Ebenezer Bryce who came to live in the Paria Valley in 1875, although he didn’t live in the valley long the canyon was named after him.   He moved to Arizona and the town of Bryce is named after him.

There is a free shuttle that takes you to some of the viewpoints along the canyon drive, our first stop was the visitor centre where we watched the informational film about the canyon.

After that we headed off on the shuttle to Bryce Point at 8,300ft elevation.   From there we continued on the shuttle to Inspiration Point and then walked the rim trail to Sunrise Point.   The views were spectacular.

 We took tons of photographs here are just a few.

These hoodoos reminded me of row upon row of people.

Have fun, we are!
