Queens Garden and Navajo Loop Professional Review and Guide
"It would be easy to visit Bryce Canyon, drive the length of the park, stop at all the scenic turnoffs, and never stray more than 50 feet from your car, as thousands of visitors do each year. That would be a crying shame, though. To really experience Bryce, you need to dip below the rim and immerse yourself in the hoodoos.
You need to experience the Bryce Amphitheater from inside the Bryce Amphitheater—not from a parking lot a mile away. Once you’ve descended below the rim, you’re able to discover and explore the hoodoos, castles, and balanced rocks up close and from many angles."
