Usually you see pictures of Bryce Canyon from the canyon rim looking down on the hoodoos, but they are even more impressive looking up from the bottom of the canyon. Every once and while I have to return to Zion and Bryce for a reality check. Both are so overpoweringly majestic that no memory can compare with the reality of being there. By the way, Bryce is not really a canyon at all. The hoodoos are all along the side of a very high mesa. The side of the mesa is cut into amphitheaters and small canyons but the main views of the spires and pillars are from the rim of the mesa or plateau.
