Bryce Canyon National Park

Bryce Canyon National Park is a national park located in southwestern Utah in the United States. It has been established in 1928 and protects over 145 km2 of amazing landscapes.

The major feature of the park is Bryce Canyon, which despite its name, is not a canyon but a collection of giant natural amphitheaters along the eastern side of the Paunsaugunt Plateau. Bryce is distinctive due to geological structures called hoodoos, formed by frost weathering and stream erosion of the river and lake bed sedimentary rocks. The red, orange, and white colors of the rocks provide spectacular views for park visitors. Bryce sits at a much higher elevation than nearby Zion National Park. The rim at Bryce varies from 2400 to 2700 m.
