The Bryce Canyon National Park is considered to be one of the most spectacular views of Utah due to the numerous carved spires that are scattered in the entire park. The beauty of the carved spires is further enhanced by the hue of the soil and structure, which is considered to be pink in color resulting in the area being deemed as the Pink Cliffs. The carved spires in the bottom of the canyon are naturally made by the effect of water, wind, and natural calamities.

The best area to visit is the Bryce Amphitheater in Bryce Canyon National Park since it has a higher number of spire structures. Another reason for its popularity is that it is the conveniently located at the southwest corner of the park visitor center of the Bryce Canyon National Park. Most guests of the Bryce Lodge have a better view of the spires since it is located in the canyon rim above the amphitheater of the Bryce Canyon National Park.

For visitors who are planning a more rugged natural experience, the closest campground is the Sunset Campground, which is an easy walking distance at the western side of the park visitor center. Some of the more popular viewpoints of the amphitheatre area of Bryce Canyon National Park are the Sunset Point, Sunrise Point, Bryce Point, and Inspiration Point. Each of these viewpoints are considered to be good photo opportunities especially during sunrise and sunset since the movement of the sun enhances the intensity of colors.

Some of the most striking photos of Bryce Canyon National Park are during late evening and early morning. And yet when these striking photos are compared yearly, there is a gradual change in the landscape since softer spots have eroded to form a more interesting shape. For the more adventurous visitors, there are various trails leading to Fairyland Point, which can take an average individual 2-3 hours. The advantage of this hike is that the visitor will be able to view the Bryce Canyon National Park at a higher elevation of 1,754 feet.

Some hikers prefer to see the hoodoos or spires up close by following several trails to Bryce Amphitheater. But the easiest in Bryce Canyon National Park is still the Queens Garden trail, which starts from Sunrise Point to below the Bryce Rim. Some of the more strange rock formations are named by visitors as Queen Victoria and Queens Castle.
