Bryce Canyon was one of the favorite places Betsy and I visited on our 2011 western trip.  The canyon was simply breathtaking.  One of the overlooks we visited was Sunset Point.  We weren’t there at sunset, but the view was spectacular just the same.

The trailhead for Navajo Loop Trail is at Sunset Point.  If you look to the left of the pine in the picture above, you can see where the trail disappears down a narrow canyon.  Part of the trail was closed when we were there, but we did make it beyond this point before we had to turn back.

The rock formations and hoodoos visible from Sunset Point are absolutely amazing.

    All those are so beautiful that it makes me want to go back again badly. We’ve not been there since we’ve had digital cameras so I’ve not got a lot of pictures of the area but if I ever get back there…..look out.
