Bryce Canyon National Park has been on my US National Park bucket list for some time. While we had limited time and a car-ride-hating infant, I’m super happy we made the drive from Zion National Park to spend a few hours in Bryce Canyon National Park. We had to be strategic about which of the viewpoints we would stop to see and we decided to drive all the way down to Rainbow Point.

Rainbow Point is one of the southernmost viewpoints, along with Yovimpa viewpoint, in Bryce Canyon National Park. It offers a great view of various parts of the park, including the famous Amphitheatre. Rainbow Point is primarily paved and is a short distance from the parking lot for this area. It’s also one of the highest elevation areas in the park and it was quite windy when we visited.

Here are my 7 photos that captured our time at Rainbow Point in Bryce Canyon National Park with a photo-by-photo breakdown below:
