Rainbow and Yovimpa View Points at Bryce Canyon National Park Aug 25, 2010
This was one stop that I wished we had spent a little more time at. I only found out later on that it would have been better to begin our tour from the southern most point and head north. I encourgae you to start your car tour by driving through the Canyon to the southern most part first, this briings you to Rainbow Point.
From the rainbow point you can walk to the southern overlook, also known as the Yovimpa point. The amazing sequence of rock layers and far reaches of pendarosa pines creat such an outstanding scenery.
Unfortunately for us, by the time we arrived at Rainbow point, a huge storm was building to the west. The rain began to pour seriously as soon as we hit the southern overlook. We had but a moment before we had to run back to our car to avoid the chilling raindrops.
This is where the geologists appetite for adventure begins. The geography is immensly rich and provokes adventure. From the north pointing view, you can see the pink cliffs in the distance. Highly recommended. If you are visiting in the later part of the yaer, be sure to carry a sweater/ jacket as it gets colder. The elevation is a little over 9000 feet.
