  Rainbow Point
by goingsolo

Favorite thing: Rainbow Point is located at the end of the 18 miule Bryce Canyon Scenic Drive. At 9,000 plus elevation, it is the highest spot in the park.

There are two short trails starting at Rainbow Point which lead to even better views. The Bristlecone Loop Trail is only a mile and has some wide open views. There's also a side trail to Yovimpa Point, where a series of cliffs descends in hues of pink, gray and white.

Fondest memory: Sitting on a wooden bench staring into the canyon on a deserted early morning. There are many spots along Bryce Canyon Scenic Drive that are ideal for a moment of quiet reflection. Getting off the main path will allow you to find even more.
