Bryce Canyon National Park


Bryce Canyon boasts red rock spires and horseshoe-shaped amphitheaters. The famous red rock spires, called "hoodoos," are formed when ice and rainwater wear away limestone. The park offers a view of the Paunsaugunt Plateau in southern Utah. Bryce Canyon includes three climatic zones: spruce/fir forest, Ponderosa Pine forest, and Pinyon Pine/juniper forest. With 100-plus species of birds, more than 1,000 plant species, and the uniqueness of the rocks, Bryce Canyon has earned the designation as a national park.

Fun Fact: The Bryce Canyon Lodge was built during the 1920s. It is a national landmark and the only remaining original lodge.
