Top Reasons to Go to Bryce Canyon National Park
Hoodoo heaven: The brashly colored limestone spires—called hoodoos—are the main attraction of Bryce Canyon.
Famous fresh air: To say the air around Bryce Canyon is rarified is not an exaggeration. With some of the clearest skies anywhere, the park offers views that, on a clear day, extend 200 mi and into three states.
Spectacular sunrises and sunsets: The deep orange and crimson hues of the park's hoodoos are intensified by the light of the sun at either end of the day.
Dramatically different zones: From the highest point of the rim to canyon base the park spans 2,000 feet, so you can explore three unique climatic zones: spruce-fir forest, ponderosa pine forest, and pinyon pine-juniper forest.
Gasp-worthy geology: You won't believe the bold colors adorning the rock layers, columns, arches, pinnacles, knobs, and other indescribable million-year old sandstone shapes.
