  • Inspiration Point (Bryce Canyon National Park): An appropriately named stop, Inspiration Point provides a phenomenal view down into Bryce Amphitheater, the park's largest and most colorful natural amphitheater. From here, you see the Silent City, packed with hoodoos (rock formations) that inspire the imagination. Some like the view even better just south of Inspiration Point, along the Rim Trail, up a little rise, at what is usually called Upper Inspiration Point.
  • Queen's Garden Trail (Bryce Canyon National Park): Presided over by majestic Queen Victoria, the thousands of colorful and intricately sculpted spires present a magnificent display when viewed from the rim. From this trail below, they're even better.
  • The Rim at Sunrise (Bryce Canyon National Park): If you thought the hoodoos were magnificent in the full light of day, wait until you see them glowing with the deep colors of the morning sun as it rises slowly above the rim. The changing angle of light creates a constantly moving panorama of shadow and color. Walk along the Rim Trail or stop at the viewpoints along the northern half of the park's scenic drive.
