Cedar Breaks National Monument

Brian Head, Utah

Cedar Breaks

Looking north from the overlook at the Cedar Breaks National Monument Visitors Center.  This park is only open in the summer months because the canyon rim is at 10,000 feet plus above sea level.  The access road is typically open late May to early October.


Cedar Breaks

View north northwest from the Visitors Center overlook.  This amphitheater of sandstone hoodoos is sited mostly west facing and should provide good opportunities to shoot late day and sunset if the clouds cooperate.  The clouds were not cooperating this day.

Looking southwest through the pines from Chessman Overlook provides a sense of the immense scale that this site possesses .  The orange colored outcrop of hoodoos visible in the distance are known as "The Bartizan".
