The Utah Department of Transportation recently installed cameras on Utah Highway 12 where you can see current conditions. The first of these is 12 miles/19 km west of the park at Red Canyon, the second is north of Bryce Canyon City near the park boundary. Access these cameras via the UDOT CommuterLink website. On the map locate Bryce Canyon and look for the camera icons on UT-12. A label will pop-up when your cursor is rolled over each icon: the Red Canyon camera is labeled "SR-12 Mile Marker 7", the Bryce Canyon City camera is labeled "SR-12 Mile Marker 14." Click on the camera icon to view the image. These cameras are especially helpful when planning a winter visit to the park.
