Bryce Point to Peekaboo Connector Trail Closure
Due to a large rockslide, the connecting trail from Bryce Point to Peekaboo Loop is closed. Trail will be reopened once repairs are made. The Peekaboo Loop is open, but must be accessed from Sunset or Sunrise Point.
Backcountry Campsite Closures
Due to bear activity at select campsites in Bryce Canyon's backcountry, multiple backcountry campsites have been closed until further notice: Sheep Creek, Swamp Canyon, Natural Bridge, Iron Spring, Corral Hollow, Riggs Spring and Yovimpa Pass.
About Image Size and Resolution
An example using Adobe Photoshop Elements can be viewed here of how we are changing the file size to better accommodate printed photos.
We are in the process of converting all images to a resolution 400 to 600 ppi, and saved in JPEG (.jpg) format which will result in larger file sizes than if they were saved in 72 ppi and will take longer to upload/download. A file size of 1.2 mbytes will take approximately 2 minutes to download over a 200 kbps connection (Typical Home DSL Speed). We appreciate your patience and understanding during this update process.
