Sunset Point




Plate 1292X. Sunset Point 1929 – 2006 Viewed south-southwest from Sunset Point in Bryce Canyon National Park. Inspiration Point is on the skyline. A ponderosa pine now blocks the original camera station, so the retake was made 15 feet further east (left). Little appears to have changed.
