Camping In Bryce canyon
There is something about camping that is so intriguing. To be able to look up from your bed and have the sky be your view is one of the most surreal experiences you can have. To look up from your warm sleeping bag and catch a glimpse of that shooting star, or pointing out the man in the moon to someone who’s never bothered to look. are all things we would recommend everyone experience at least once in their life.
Camping in Bryce is more that just something fun to do, and there are few places on earth better. The lack of light pollution from cars, buildings and street lights make for a heavenly scene you just can’t replicate anywhere. It is definitely worth the effort it takes to bust out the old sleeping bag and tent, camp chef, and gather your friends. Build a fire among the ancient red towers of Bryce, and wonder about the past inhabitants who maybe stayed in that very same area. That’s what camping in Bryce Canyon National Park is all about.
