What people are saying about Bryce Amphitheater

The app runs automatically once you start it. I didn't realize it at first (thought I had to keep clicking the icon). Once I realized that it was really nice. The map adds the perfect addition to the audio directions and the information in the narration was very informative. Am considering the Yellowstone version for next year!

The software is well made and the information is helpful. Really recommended for the price.
