Inspiration Point, Bryce Canyon National Park

(4.9/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
Survey colorful limestone spires and arches from a windswept vantage point at Inspiration Point. A lookout in Bryce Canyon National Park, the point gives panoramic views of the canyon's horseshoe-shaped amphitheaters, which contain naturally formed hoodoos--spires created in limestone due to erosion. You'll marvel at the contorted formations and their graduated color palette, which changes as the light of the day moves across the valley. If you are a bird-watcher, keep an eye out for the extremely rare California condor, which can sometimes be seen in the area. The point is an excellent spot for wildlife and landscape photography. Before you head to Bryce Canyon National Park, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Bryce Canyon National Park family vacation planner, to make sure you see all that Bryce Canyon National Park has to offer, including Inspiration Point.
