Ponderos Pine Forest at Ponderosa Canyon in Bryce Canyon Park Aug 24, 2010
One of the great view points at Bryce Canyon National Park is Ponderosa Canyon. It is comprised of huge pines on the Canyon floor, some of which are over 5 feet in diameter and are over 150 feet tall. The huge forest of Blue Spruce and Douglas fur is a shock to many when they arrive at Ponderosa Canyon. I was surprised indeed. From the look out up above 800 feet, the horizon takes away from it, but when you come cloder to the edge and look down, the plush green of the ponderosa is captivating.
One of the highlights of our stop at this point was a blcak crow that wanted people to take photographs of it. It did not move when we got closer. I particularly did not like it because of the old tales of ravens/ black crows being the bringers of bad tidings. Oh well nontheless it was something to see.
There are 3 such forests within Bryce Canyon National park, but we were able to see only this one as it was along the scenic rim drive. This is a recommended stop, you must see the raven and the giant pines. Again, the views are breath-taking.
