Bryce Canyon National Park - Navajo Loop Trail at Sunset Point

Sunset Point was our favorite area at Bryce Canyon National Park.  It had great views, but the hiking trails really differentiated it.  The kids and I took Navajo Loop, a 1.3 mile loop that brings you up close with the hoodoos.

We started by hiking through 'Wall Street' -- trails surrounded by steep sandstone walls and hoodoos.  We were all in awe and the incredible geologic formations.

The trail was steep, but the well made switchbacks made it easy to navigate.

Eventually, you descend into a slot canyon.

See the tree growing in the middle of this canyon? There were trees growing in random places.

You hike past a dry stream bed to arrive at Two Bridges -- two small stone bridges.

On the way back, you get a good view of 'Thor's Hammer' (on the left of the picture below).

There are two neat stone tunnels on the way out of the park.
