Bryce Canyon National Park Warnings and Dangers: 32 reviews and 39 photos
Most of Bryce sits at 8000 feet above sea level with even higher points - such as Bristlecone Loop - over 9100. Flatlanders are going to feel the thinner air if they haven't had time to adjust, and the altitude is particularly important to note if you have breathing problems. Go slow, drink lots of water and don't go running off to a strenuous trail before you know if you have the stamina to handle it.
I had the classic high-altitude headache here our first day.
See over-exertion warning #4 in the park newspaper.
During the summer, Bryce can be hot, dry and dusty so hikers, always take along plenty of water, sunscreen and a hat. If sensitive to heat, hike earlier in the morning or later in the afternoon when it's cooler. Sunstroke or acute dehydration is no joke and no fun at all: by the time one of them hits you, it's too late for a quick fix.
Drink and drink some more!
This natural bridge almost begs to be climbed but it, like most others of the park's formations, is more fragile than it looks. Close encounters with loose, crumbling rock or unstable rim edges can land you in the emergency room or worse so stay on marked paths and off the pinnacles and whatnot, OK?
It's also illegal to climb the formations: resulting fines would do serious damage to your beer budget and THAT would be just sad.
