Bryce Canyon is located in Southwestern, Utah on the Paunsaugunt Plateau. This canyon was carved by the Paria River and is geologically the upper section of the Grand Staircase.The 'pink cliffs" that are exposed here leave the visitor breathless. Photography is best done at sunrise here because of the main ampitheater's (Bryce Ampitheater) Eastern exposure. Sunset is still beautiful, but the light dissipates quickly over the plateau. In my opinion, Fairyland Canyon and the Bryce Ampitheater are the best locations for photography. I also recommend hiking into the "Wall Street"and "Thor's Hammer" area along the Navajo Loop and Queen's Garden trail.
