Inspiration Point is a popular viewpoint in Bryce Canyon, offering panoramic views of Bryce Amphitheater, a natural amphitheater that is filled with thousands of hoodoos, spires, and other rock formations. The viewpoint is located at an elevation of 8,100 feet (2,470 m) and offers stunning vistas of the park's colorful rock formations.

The viewpoint is particularly famous for its stunning sunrise and sunset views. You can witness the hoodoos and other rock formations bathed in warm, golden light during sunrise, while the same formations glow in rich shades of orange and red during sunset. It is also a popular spot for stargazing at night, as Bryce Canyon is one of the few dark sky parks in the world.
