Bryce Canyon National Park is one of several great national parks in the state of Utah. One of the appealing things about Bryce Canyon is that it is a relatively compact national park and you can see the highlights in a single day (or an afternoon and the following morning, as we did) and not feel like you missed too much. This is good since there are many other great national/state parks a stone’s throw away. Bryce Canyon is known for it’s hoodoos, tall irregularly shaped columns of rock. The Bryce Amphitheater (pictured below) is filled with an impressive collection of hoodoos and several amazing hiking loops to get down into the canyon and get a closer look at the hoodoos. This photo was taken from the top of the Peek-A-Boo loop hike in the late afternoon.
