Bryce Canyon is at a fairly high elevation, and the temperatures here are quite changeable. The day we visited, the daytime temp was between the upper 50s and upper 60s, as contrasted with Zion, which was in the low 90s.
Here you are looking down into the canyon, the majority of which is red rocks eroded into "hoodoos," or free-standing rock formations carved by the wind. (Imagine a crowd of people standing around; the rock formations are simply amazing.) The main area of the canyon is called the Amphitheatre.
The Rim Trail goes around the top of the canyon wall, from which you can see over 100 miles. The air is amazingly clear.
The most memorable hike we took was on the Navajo Trail, which descends 500-600 feet into the canyon, ending in a slot canyon that is breathtaking. There are two routes to the bottom; we chose "Wall Street," which is a trail that spirals down into the canyon. The perspective from the bottom is totally different from the view at the top. What was amazing was the variety of flora that seems to thrive in the harsh environment, with very little sunlight and little soil to cling to. This was an incredible and very worthwhile experience.
