Bryce Canyon National Park High Point Trip Report
Rainbow Point (9,115 ft)

Entire park is
covered with snow except plowed roads and trails, they were plowing the
tourist paths with a snowblower on a Bobcat loader. Park at Rainbow Point
and hike to point where spot elevation is, then look around for true high
point. The highest spot around is the drift in the center of the parking
lot where the snow blowers have been piling from all directions, but I
decree it non-natural and instead bushwhack behind summer restrooms.
A few minutes of waist-deep snow at that altitude were enough for me,
so declare victory and head down. Actually winter would be a great time to
visit for perfectionists, you can borrow snowshoes at the visitor center
and walk back and forth at any arbitrary spacing with visual evidence
that you've done enough.
