5 Reasons to Visit Bryce Canyon in the Spring

Utah’s Bryce Canyon is known for its deeply brick-colored rocks, drastic and labyrinthine formations and its stunning wilderness areas. While it’s famous for winter events, such as cross-country skiing and snowshoeing, it’s arguably even better in spring. Here are five reasons to make it your destination in the next few months.
1. The Scenery is Gorgeous
Springtime has obvious pleasures worldwide, including the growth of new greenery and the appearance of flowers that have hidden their faces for the last few months. Nowhere is this truer than in Bryce Canyon, where the verdure and blooms pop up seemingly everywhere.
2. Better Temperatures
Summer in Bryce Canyon can be hot, while the winter drops down pretty low. However, springtime temps range between 40 and 70 degrees … perfect hiking weather. Just make sure you’re prepared with layers, as it tends to swing wildly. You don’t want to be caught without proper gear.
3. Equestrian Trails Become Passable
If your idea of a vacation involves some good horse riding, then spring is the perfect time to visit Bryce Canyon. Trails become passable again, and you can enjoy the beauty of the scenery from the back of your mount without worrying about any accidents. Plus, the horses get all frisky in all that spring air!
4. Snow Lovers Needn’t Despair
The lovely thing about Bryce Canyon in spring is that the snow tends to hang on a bit. That means the red rocks are still snow-capped and there’s a pretty white spread in the shade, while at the same time flowers are popping up everywhere. For some photographically minded, it’s the best of both worlds.
