Bryce Canyon’s Navajo Loop/Queens Garden Loop is a popular trail for good reason, with constant views of hoodoos—the multi-colored, limestone, sandstone, and mudstone spires that look like giant, melting candles, including the famous formation called Thor’s Hammer. But once turning onto the Peek-a-Boo Loop, you lose the crowds—and discover the scenic heart of Bryce Canyon while hiking below the Wall of Windows and row after row of towers in fluorescent shades of red and orange.

The season for hiking in the desert Southwest is upon us. Click on the photo gallery below to view several images from that six-mile dayhike combining Bryce Canyon’s Navajo Loop/Queens Garden Loop and Peek-a-Boo Loop.
