The Road to Rainbow Point

This part of the Bryce Canyon National Park looks somewhat different – just a few hoodoos with a high-elevation pine forest. We drove to Rainbow Point, took the quick hike around Bristlecone Loop, and then stopped at the overlooks on the way back to camp.

They call this Natural Bridge but it isn’t actually a Bridge! As we learned at Natural Bridges National Monument, a Bridge has to have been formed by water erosion. This should really be called an Arch.

This was my favorite vista along the scenic drive. Most people didn’t stop here because it wasn’t well marked but I thought it was beautiful.
