Bryce Canyon - part 2  
The sunset and sunrise are much anticipated events at Bryce and large crowds gather at the viewpoints early to get the best spots. I can just say that you've got to see it for yourself!

these are all incredible!

and i want a hopi chipmunk! :-)

so, how much time did you spend here to get all these fantastic variations of light and shadow on the landscape? did you camp out or did you rush off from some hotel before sunrise to get there in time? did you drive around a lot or are all the pictures basically from the same place? logistics, please!

all i can say is that you've got to be opportunistic. you have a fair idea of places to visit, but it needs to be flexible. Bryce Canyon was small place and I did camp close to the viewpoints (about 5 minutes drive)
